iTwin SecureBox – Your Key to Secure Cloud Storage

iTwin SecureBox provides hardware-key based security for Dropbox™ Singapore / Boston – October 16, 2012 – iTwin – the company that created the iTwin ‘remote file access’ device – releases iTwin SecureBox, bringing hardware-key based security to Dropbox™. Now, even the most privacy-conscious users can rest assured about putting their sensitive data in the Cloud. Cloud storage is a great way to access data on-the-go. However people are concerned about the security of their data once it leaves their computer. iTwin SecureBox has been created to solve this problem. Key benefits of iTwin SecureBox include: 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. “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...

Ecomaster Lepa Chopper and Casino Fans

When it comes to shopping for fans, there are a couple of items to account for. Sometimes you are looking at the aesthetics, while other times you're looking for the noise factor. Most of the time you are looking for thermal performance. There are hundreds of options available from today's e-tailers at your finger tips, making it that much more difficult to choose the correct fan for you needs. Today we will be taking a look at a couple of fans by Ecomaster Lepa that are trying to seperate themselves from the rest of the pack. We have the Lepa Chopper and the Lepa Casino on the bench today and we are going to find out how these stack up. Before we take a closer look at these fans, let's get to know Ecomaster Lepa a little more. Ecomaster is a leading provider of OEM PC components such as fans and power supplies. Ecomaster is also a leading provider for Enermax. Ecomaster is not as mainstream so not everyone knows the name Ecomaster or Lepa, but Enermax has been reputable for a number of years, which speaks volumes for Ecomaster. Based on our experience with passed Lepa products they are very similar to Enermax. Since Ecomaster is the OEM provider for both, we can assure you the quality is normally top notch.
