CUPP Computing announces its acquisition of YOGGIE Security Systems, a company specializing in Computer Security.
This acquisition reflects two priorities: First, the importance CUPP places on computer security and its seriousness to deliver to the market the full scope of benefits that are made possible by its core technology. The opportunity to provide unprecedented levels of PC security is innate to CUPP’s patented technology. This acquisition enables the company to bring this advantage into the PC user space. It will allow CUPP to deliver a powerful solution for two of the most important challenges in PC industry – computer security and power savings.
YOGGIE’s IP will be incorporated into CUPP Computing’s software portfolio, which CUPP will continue to develop. This will enable the company to pursue a comprehensive package in bringing next generation of computer solutions to market.
“YOGGIE’s innovative security technology provides the perfect platform to expand the footprint for the Multi-Mode System, and creates a unique and powerful value proposition for CUPP’s key offerings in the ever changing computer hardware market” – Omar Nathaniel Ely, CTO of CUPP Computing.
CUPP Computing plans to re-launch the YOGGIE development center and expand its technical scope. The founder of YOGGIE security systems Shlomo Touboul is expected to remain with the CUPP Development Center for the startup period and hopefully well beyond.
The Yoggie Pico is a ARM-based computer with its processor, memory and hardened operating system dedicated for Computer Security, all in the form factor of a memory stick.
