We originally built the first version of SyncStop (called the "USB Condom") to scratch our own itch. We wanted to minimize risks of charging our mobile devices in public areas. In late 2013 we tweeted about our work and the next morning flooded with emails and calls; we realized we were on to something. Our first production run sold out in a few days and even spawned copycat devices.
As a small independent information security firm, we’ve realized that to often information security is limited to those with deep pockets. Syncstop is our small way of bringing data security to a device we can't live without.
