Connect two computers, with no cloud in sight

When it comes to the most personal files, it can be hard to trust the cloud. The iTwin USB dongle provides secure access to a computer’s hard drive from any machine with a Web connection. Users plug half of the iTwin into a primary computer and set a password. Connecting the other half to another machine opens a direct link between the two. As files move between the pair, they are encrypted in 256-bit AES, the same standard used for military documents. If either half goes missing, both can be remotely deactivated. $100
