Earlier on Father’s Day last weekend, iTwin rolled out a new update which reads: iTwin now supports files permission. If you are unfamiliar with the product, iTwin consist two USB dongles that connect to each other through a dedicated hardware interface. Once paired with each other, these act as keys to enable access to shared files on the computers into which they are plugged in. e27 had previously provided coverage on them.
In January 2012, iTwin introduced file collaborations with its iTwin Multi features. Now, with the newly shipped file permissions feature, it will extend the user experience and security with better access control to the file collaboration features. This new feature has been released as a free software update to all iTwin’s current users.
So what lies ahead for iTwin? According to Lux Anantharaman, cofounder of iTwin, he says “iTwin is doing well and getting into new markets. I cannot reveal the exact number of iTwins sold, but all I can say is that we have sold 5 figure number last year and expect to do even better this year. We are also working on some seriously exciting stuff, which we intend to launch before Christmas this year. We are making major updates on the hardware/software/back-end cloud front. We have received tonnes of customer feedback and requests and so all of us can expect to see some really cool stuff. I cannot disclose the actual products per se, but expect iTwin to revolutionize the remote access space. In the meanwhile, we will be providing free updates to enable iTwin File Access to work on Mountain Lion, Windows 8 computers in the upcoming months. We are also improving our UI significantly and expect to see a smooth and much simpler UI in the near future.”
