Help me name my new product, which combines the functionality of popular existing apps, but is specialized with high-security features.

I'm the owner of and active participant in a small IT consulting firm. We do custom development for clients that would like to use "regular" desktop and tablet apps but can't -- because of various security regulations or compliance requirements.
For example, Client X can't use Dropbox or Evernote because they're subject to rules that require end-to-end encryption and a complete audit trail, etc. I step in and replicate the basic functionality of those apps (website, desktop client, mobile client, etc.) to the customer's specs, but I do it in a way that keeps their legal department and auditors happy.
Lately I've been getting a lot of requests for basically the same functionality, so I'm rolling it all into one product under a single "brand name". That's where I'm stuck. The development was the easy part!
The product is basically a secure version of the following apps/sites rolled into one:
Dropbox (w/ file version archive, sharing, and commenting)
A Generic Twitter Client
Google Docs Viewer
I've got desktop clients for Mac and Windows, and a mobile app for iOS and Android.
My favorite name so far was "KitchenSYNC" but that's already taken.
I'm up for pretty much any name - a conglomeration of tech words (like SyncSpace) or a completely random name, the only requirement being that the .com and twitter handles are both available.
TL;DR: Help me name my new product, which combines the functionality of popular existing apps, but is specialized with high-security features.
