[prMac.com] Singapore - iTwin has introduced its USB device that enables users to simply and securely access, share and edit all their files and media from anywhere in the world, today announced the availability of Mac OS X (Lion & Snow Leopard) Beta support. This upgrade to the award winning device will allow a larger audience to more effectively access their work and personal files from anywhere. Existing iTwin customers can get the upgrade now from iTwin.com/Mac.
iTwin provides Plug'n'Play simplicity, while protecting the user's files by utilizing End-to-End, military-grade encryption and 2-Factor Authentication. iTwin users do not pay monthly subscription fees for file access, as is typically required with Cloud storage. Since iTwin is only limited by the size of a computer's hard drive, users can access any or all their files, for the rest of their life, for a one-time purchase price of $99.00 (USD).
"We have been working to improve iTwin, for both consumers and small businesses," said Lux Anantharaman, co-founder and CEO of iTwin. "Now with OS X support, iTwin users will be able to use iTwin with their Macs too. We have acted on our users' feedback and are equally excited about this much-requested upgrade."
Consumers all around the world, even technophiles, are using iTwin. Phillip Schaffman is a veteran sales professional who travels extensively for business. "Being on the road so much means that sometimes you have to manage your household finances and other important tasks from hotels and other remote locations. I don't trust keeping sensitive files such as financial and legal documents on a USB flash drive or even cloud storage. I need a simple way to access what I need, when I need it, and with the peace of mind that it is safe from prying eyes. iTwin gives me all of that - and without the monthly fees."
Small businesses are also finding iTwin useful for sharing information. Tom Overton is a U.S. based lawyer handling a sensitive matter for a client in Asia, and states, "By using the iTwin we can easily and securely transfer files and share information. Without the iTwin, securely transmitting confidential information was cumbersome and time consuming. With the iTwin, the process is fast and easy." He adds, "Personally, I am thrilled with the new OS X support - this is the flexibility needed for both my business and personal use. iTwin is a perfect solution for people like me who don't want to deal with the storage-size limits and security concerns of a cloud service or of a standard USB flash drive."
iTwin announced the US launch of its new iTwin 'Remote File Access' device at CES 2011. Honored as a 2009 finalist in the TechCrunch 50 awards, iTwin makes remote file access as simple as using a flash drive while enabling users to replicate the experience of one computer on any other computer with an internet connection.
