A few months ago–wow, it seems like an eternity–I wrote about iTwin, an innovative, secure way to access information over the Internet:
iTwin Inc., the company that created iTwin, a USB device that enables users to privately access, edit and share their files and media from anywhere in the world, today announced that it has been named an international CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 product categories.
Selected for the Computer Peripherals product category, iTwin is a breakthrough in file sharing technology that was developed with privacy and security in mind. “It is an honor to have iTwin recognized as one of CES 2012’s most innovative products,” says Lux Anantharaman, co-founder and CEO of iTwin. “The current iTwin remote file access product is just one of many ground-breaking innovations in our lineup for 2012. Stay on the lookout for more enhancements and new products at CES 2012 in January.”
iTwin is a simple Plug’N’Play solution that enables users to access, edit & share files and media – on Macs and PCs — from anywhere in the world. Comprising two identical parts, iTwin can be used on any Internet-connected computer. Plug one half of iTwin into the computer, share files for remote access and those files can be accessed from any other computer into which the matching half is plugged.
Completely secure and private, iTwin utilizes end-to-end AES-256 encryption and a remote disable feature if the device is lost or stolen.
Although iTwin works with Windows and Mac, I was a bit disappointed that Linux wasn’t supported. Since I spend about 95% of my day on Linux, you can imagine my disappointment…but then, this comment found its way into my inbox:
We are working on Linux and hope to make it available in the 1st half of 2012. We are soon going to release a feature update which will allow you to connect multiple iTwin on a PC. So you can share files with multiple people.
