iTwin, a secure, ‘limitless’, remote access device was formally launched into the UK market at The Gadget Show Live 2012, NEC Birmingham 11-15 April.
Already a major success in the USA and Italy, where it was launched last year, iTwin is a simple two-part USB-style device that allows users to remotely connect to their main computer. And unlike other existing remote access solutions – there are no ongoing subscription fees or the security risks and limitations associated with cloud storage.
Users simply plug one part of iTwin into their main computer and then connect by plugging the other part of iTwin into any other internet enabled PC – anywhere in the world.
“iTwin users can travel without a laptop and without the risks associated with USB flash drives or the storage limitations of the cloud. Safe, effective, limitless and completely portable, iTwin gives you the freedom to be productive while leaving the bulk behind,” said UK Sales Agent Bill Dent.
Key features include:
•Plug and play remote file access
•Unlimited capacity (up to the size of your hard drive)
•Two way file transfer between computers
•Facility to set read/write permissions at folder and file level
•Remote disable function
•Windows and Mac compatible – works cross platform
•Military grade encryption, hardware token-based security
•An easy alternative to networking
“Portable storage devices have limited storage capacity and if lost, security and privacy is compromised. Login-based solutions rely on passwords, which are difficult to remember and risky, as passwords can be hacked, while cloud based options use a third party to host information. iTwin solves all of these issues in a very user-friendly way,” added Bill Dent.
As well as business and professional users such as lawyers and accountants, iTwin is also proving particularly popular with photographers and students along with far-apart couples and families.
As well as being awarded four and a half stars by PCMag.com, iTwin featured in Popular Science’s Best of What’s New 2011 and also received a reddot design award in 2011.
