There’s new kid on the block, iTwin.
iTwin is not an online service but it’s a product, in fact a double sided USB drive. You plug one end into computer “A” and the other end into computer “B”. Once both ends of the iTwin USB drive are plugged in you can share files stored on the iTwin drive of one computer with the iTwin drive of the other computer. Pretty neat and simple.
Here’s a video about it from Cnet:
iTwin says that their solutions is more secure than online service solutions that just have a password. iTwin files are secured by 2-factor hardware authentication and AES-256 level encryption, making it more secure than cloud storage and remote access software solutions.
You won’t need to make a second copy of your files but can simply edit them and both the remote and original local copy are kept in sync. Pretty neat. Cost: $99.
Should you ditch your current file sharing services? Not yet. Think about how secure you need to be and then compare the pros and cons of iTwin for you (and your staff) vs other solutions. One size never fits all.
