iTwin Connect plugs into your laptop to create a personal VPN, allowing you to access sensitive information and bypass certain site’s geo-restrictions.
Singapore-based iTwin has helped put Singapore onto the global tech community’s radar. Back in 2009, iTwin was selected as one of the TechCrunch50 Finalists. They went on to be part of one of the world largest technology conference: the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) back in 2011. Today, two years later, iTwin once again puts Singapore back onto the electronics and gadgets radar at the CES, unveiling a brand new product: iTwin Connect.
iTwin Connect is aimed to address challenges faced by today’s mobile professionals. First, iTwin Connect ensures private and restriction-free browsing. Secondly, it provides remote desktop access, remote file access and access to the home or office network. A use case of that would be acting as a personal virtual private network or VPN.
iTwin Connect device consists of two identical halves. To install, simply plug the device into a USB port on the home or office PC. Detach one half of the device, which becomes the iTwin Connect “key”, and carry it along. When on the go, plug this key into a laptop and a secure VPN tunnel is instantly formed to the home or office PC. This means that you can access Facebook or Twitter from China by selecting which geographical server you want to use.
Another of its key feature, ‘Teleport Me’ is especially beneficial for browsing from hotel networks, public WiFi hotspots, or other untrusted Internet connections. It fully prevents anyone from seeing sensitive information such as passwords or tracking browsing activity. With iTwin Connect, you can use it to get access to sensitive things such as online banking
According to Lux Anantharaman, CEO of iTwin, “iTwin Connect addresses the challenges mobile professionals face daily. Its high security provides peace of mind, and its simplicity plus comprehensive features help get things done on the go. It is the perfect, no-compromise solution for road warriors, travelers and those that value their online privacy.”
iTwin Connect is available now for US$129 at iTwin.com and Amazon.com.
The company recently won the Most Innovative Product/Service from the National Infocomm Awards.
