iTwin SecureBox – Your Key to Secure Cloud Storage

Key benefits of iTwin SecureBox include:
Drag & Drop Simplicity: iTwin SecureBox automatically encrypts files dragged into the SecureBox folder and seamlessly integrates with DropboxTM, requiring no extra steps.
Plug & Play Operation: Plugging iTwin into a computer automatically decrypts and presents the files that had been encrypted using iTwin SecureBox.
Hardware-Based Security: AES 256-bit encryption, in AES-GCM* mode, with the encryption-keys residing only on the iTwin devices. The encrypted files will appear as gibberish to anyone who does not have the physical iTwin device that was used to encrypt. Even the filenames are obfuscated.
“With iTwin SecureBox, users can store sensitive data in the Cloud without fear”, says Lux, CEO of iTwin. “They will get the best of both worlds: the convenience of the Cloud and the security of iTwin.”
iTwin SecureBox will be automatically pushed as a free download to all current iTwin users. iTwin can be purchased for $99 at Amazon.com and iTwin.com.
iTwin launched the iTwin ‘remote file access’ device in 2010, which made remote access as simple as using a flash drive. Now, iTwin has taken the significant step of introducing iTwin SecureBox, which combines iTwin’s hardware-key based security with the ease-of-access offered by the Cloud.
