The unique iTwin USB device that securely and remotely shares files across computers has just received a Mac-friendly update.
Once a PC exclusive, the double-ended USB keys that turn two computers into a virtual cloud space can now connect between Mac OS X and Windows computers.
Check out the full review of the iTwin here.
iTwin CEO Lux Anantharaman says that an ‘iTwin Multi’ is set to be released this October. With the iTwin currently limited to connecting two computers, this Multi device bundle will allow more computers to join the file-sharing link.
The iTwin works by creating a virtual private network (VPN) with a highly secure AES 256-bit encryption between two Internet-connected computers. The software is housed on the two USB sticks and, when attached to two computers, a virtual shared drive is formed.
Unlike physical storage, no data is stored on the USB keys that sit in each connected computer, and unlike the cloud, all your data is stored locally rather than on someone else’s server.
The iTwin is currently distributed in Australia by New Age Trading and sells with a one-off price of US$99.
