iTwin USB File Sharing Device Now in the United States

iTwinEarlier today iTwin announced limited availability of a first generation plug’n’play device that enables data transfer between any two computers that are connected to the internet. The device is made up of two identical parts that resemble your average everyday USB drive. Each half of the iTwin is plugged into a USB port on both computers that are to share data. This announcement from iTwin marks the first of these devices released in the United States which are being sold in limited quantities for the holiday season.

With the mobility of today’s population, many people use multiple devices between work and home. The only problem is that files are kept in silos and are not merged easily. Even if you have a laptop, traveling through something like airport security can be difficult. Even your USB devices can be easily misplaced adding additional problems. The iTwin allows you to keep all of your files in one place while providing access to them from anywhere. The best thing is that your only capacity limit is your computer’s hard drive because the iTwin drive does not store any data.

This device is inherently secure and utilizes 256-bit AES encryption. Only the two halves of the iTwin device know the key, and the iTwin generates a new key every time the two halves are paired together. If you lose one half of the iTwin, then you can disable the connection between the devices denying access to anybody who may find the other half. If that isn’t enough for you,

then you can also password protect your device.

According to iTwin CEO Lux Anantharaman, “Everyone can relate

to the problems that we set out to solve when developing the iTwin device. Business people and everyday consumers alike expect to be able to access important information anytime, anywhere. iTwin users can travel without laptop, copy or backup proprietary work documents, files, and folders and remotely access and edit files on one computer from another, ensuring complete control on all files with multiple contributors. It’s also the best way to create a family network – share photos from the latest vacation or wedding or exchange documents. iTwin brings peace of mind with its numerous, useful applications.”

Only 50 of the special edition MMX iTwins are available for purchase in the United States. They will run you $99 each and can be purchased exclusively from the iTwin online store. General availability is said to follow in January at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas.
