iTwin exists in the form of a pair of USB drives that let you share files with someone on the other side of the world securely via the Internet. Now, ITwin has announced the new SecureBox which is a hardware-based encryption technology that ensures you with peace of mind when your data is stored on the cloud storage or Dropbox.

Cloud storage such as Dropbox offers the convenience of storing and accessing your data on the go. But privacy -conscious users are usually worried of their sensitive data stored on the cloud, hence SecureBox is the solution to ensure peace of mind. Key benefits of iTwin SecureBox are as follows:

– Drag & Drop Simplicity: iTwin SecureBox automatically encrypts files dragged into the SecureBox folder and seamlessly integrates with Dropbox™, 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.
2-Factor Authentication: Hardware key plus an optional password.

– 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. 256-bit encryption, in AES-GCM* mode, with the encryption-keys residing only on the iTwin devices.
