I poked around the interface to see what goodies I could find. It's a very well-designed interface with a decent green color scheme with Flash graphs throughout. It pleases the people who like pictures of data. The "threat meter" is pretty cool. I guess it figures out how much of a threat the environment is by how many attacks it has blocked.

There's a set of neat, Flash-based, animated graphs that show numerically how many attacks of a certain type were blocked. Then, there's the good, ol' text-based log that some of us prefer. It's fairly verbose, too.

A neat policy slider allows the user to set the level of security automatically. I jacked it up to high-I don't want anything getting in! An email filter allows the Yoggie Gatekeeper Pico to check inbound and outbound email for spam and viruses.

A layer 7 application filter can check HTTP, FTP, POP, and SMTP traffic for viruses, too. A firewall protects inbound and outbound. There's also a neat intrusion detection system which keeps local area network viruses at bay.
