iTwin Creates a Personal Cloud

iTwin Infinite Capacity Thumb DriveiTwin is billed as an “infinite capacity thumb drive” but this sells the device short – it’s much more than this. Andy finds out what its capable of from Akash at CES Showstoppers.

The basic premise of iTwin is a pair of USB devices, one of which goes in your work desktop, the other in your home (or laptop) computer. Files can then be copied securely to and from the work computer across the internet to the laptop.

The devices are cryptographically paired together to ensure the security of the connection and the creators seem to have solutions for most of the issues that might arise, such as dynamic IPs or theft.

The brilliance of iTwin is that it offers a personal cloud solution where the data is completely under your control but not actually in your possession. No risk of theft, loss or nosey border guards rifling through your files.

Works with both Windows PCs and Mac – available now for $99.

The iTwin Infinite Capacity Thumb Drive

iTwin is solving more than just the capacity problem with thumb drives, they are also tackling remote access at the same time.  It all begins with a very small device that looks like a pair of USB thumb drives fastened together back-to-back.  It’s a bit more than something that simple though.  Each time this device is plugged into a computer it automatically generates AES 256 encryption.  Once it’s attached to your PC a virtual folder pops up that allows you to drag-and-drop all of the files you want, in fact you can drop your entire hard drive on it!  After copying all of the files you want then you can split the device into two USB drives.  Leave one on your home or office PC and take the other with you on the road.  Now you have a secure VPN to the base computer without the hassle and expense that VPN can entail.

The iTwin is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems.  They have also solved a lot of the potential security problems and dynamic IP problems, as you will see in the video below.  The iTwin is available now for a one-time cost of $99.99, no monthly fees like traditional VPN services.  It’s available directly from iTwin or from many retail outlets.

iTwin – Reinventing Mac, PC USB Drive as Cloud Device

I have looked at this interesting product called the iTwin for a few weeks now. It’s a dongle for your computer that pairs two machines together – no matter where they are located. As long as they are on unrestricted WiFi, they can talk to each other.

Using military-grade encryption, the iTwin is pretty easy to use. Plug in one USB dongle into one computer, the other USB dongle into another computer. Connect up to an internet connection, then pair up the machines. When paired, you can pass information between the two. There is no storage limits (besides what the computers can hold).
The system comes with a “Remote Disable Code”, which you get via email. If your machine gets stolen, then initiate the code and your iTwin is disabled.
The main advantage to using the iTwin is you can have a machine with little or no data on it. Your other computer could become a cloud source only you can access. If you have PC or Mac, you can use this system.
“We are excited to be able to offer iTwin to both OS X and Windows customers,” says Lux Anantharaman, co-founder and CEO of iTwin. “We are confident that Mac users will be satisfied with the features iTwin offers, and which both consumers and small businesses have come to enjoy.  Now both Macs and PCs will have full, cross-platform capabilities with this revolutionary device that is perfect for their sensitive file sharing needs.”
The iTwin is available for $99 on their store or through Amazon.
