iTwin receives 2011 Best of What’s New Award in the computing category

Singapore / Boston, MA  November  16, 2011 iTwin Inc., the company that created iTwin, a USB device that enables users to privately access, edit and share their files and media from anywhere in the world, today announced that they have been honored with Popular Science magazine’s ‘2011 Best of What’s New Award’ in the computing category. 

“We are honored & thrilled to have been recognized by Popular Science,” says Lux Anantharaman, co-founder and CEO of iTwin. “Winning this award validates a successful launch year for us. Moving into 2012, we are working on improving iTwin in multiple directions – new collaboration-centric features, strengthening iTwin’s inbuilt privacy & security and making it even easier to use.”

“For 24 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprise and amaze us − those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our views of whatʼs possible in the future.” said Mark Jannot, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. “The Best of Whatʼs New Award is the magazineʼs top honor, and the 100 winners − chosen from among thousands of entrants − represent the highest level of achievement in their fields.”

Accessing information while on the go is a must in today’s fast paced world.  However, technologies like cloud-storage, remote access software and traditional USB flash drives do not provide enough security or privacy.  iTwin is a breakthrough in file access technology that was developed with these factors in mind, yet is really easy to use.

iTwin is the first and only remote file access solution that is truly Plug’N’Play, and that also provides two-factor authentication and end-to-end encryption. Comprising two identical parts, iTwin can be used on any Internet-connected computer. Plug one half of iTwin into the computer, drag’n’drop files for remote access and those files can be accessed from any other computer into which the matching half is plugged.
