Designed to foster sharing, myshare enables users to share digital content within the home and between different computer platforms including PC, Mac, and Linux workstations. Content once trapped in an individual computer is now readily available to all those connected to the home network. Once plugged into myshare, USB printers and storage devices including memory sticks can also be easily shared over the home network.

"The myshare family of products gives consumers the peace of mind that is associated with knowing that their irreplaceable digital media files are securely stored, protected and accessible whenever, wherever they like."
