Boston, MA—iTwin, creator of iTwin portable USB device that enables users to privately access, share and edit their files and media from anywhere, has added compatibility with Mac OS X (Lion and Snow Leopard).
iTwin is a plug-and-play USB device, with no setup necessary, that allows two online computers to share military-grade encrypted data from anywhere in the world. Comprising two identical parts, iTwin can be activated on any computer with an Internet connection, and files from that computer can be shared anywhere the matching half, or “twin,” goes.
Security benefits of iTwin feature hardware-based two-factor authentication and military-grade Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption to protect all data communication. When two halves of the iTwin are paired, the owner is sent a “remote disable code” via e-mail, which can be used in the event one half of the iTwin is lost or stolen.
For optimal storage, since files reside on the shared computers, not the iTwin device itself, capacity is only limited to the size of each shared computer’s hard drive (and any connected drives).
There are also no monthly storage fees, as compared with cloud storage and remote access software, and as new features and enhancements are rolled out, free updates are installed automatically.
“We are excited to be able to offer iTwin to both OS X and Windows customers,” said Lux Anantharaman, cofounder 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.”
iTwin is currently available for $99. Existing customers can get the free Mac OS X compatibility upgrade from iTwin.com/Mac. Every time there is a new version of the iTwin software, users will be automatically upgraded when plugging the device into a computer. iTwin.com
