TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 2, 2009) - Clickfree Automatic Backup., a two-year winner of the 2009 Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ Companies-to-Watch Awards and the inventor of effortless computer backup, today announced the signing of 13 new key distributors worldwide, increasing distribution by 35 percent in the last quarter.

These distributors include SED International, Digitek, ICE, Carolina Wholesale, R&S Technology and Wynit in the United States; CMS Distribution Ltd in the United Kingdom; Tesoro Australia; Tesoro New Zealand; Conjoin in India; E'Lance Singapore; as well as Techdata and SAMTECK in Canada. Clickfree products are now marketed though 38 distributors worldwide in more than 19 countries.

"Due to growing collections of video, photos and music, consumer storage requirements in the average U.S. household will grow more than six-fold, to more than a terabyte between now and 2013," said Kurt Scherf, vice president and principal analyst with Parks Associates. "Clickfree's newly-announced distribution agreements are a reflection of the rapidly-growing need to put easy-to-use backup solutions into consumers' hands and to encourage more regular backup and protection of digital media and other important files."

Each distributor will offer products from Clickfree's popular line of easy-to-use products including Clickfree™ hard drives (160gb - 2Terabyte capacities), the solid state Clickfree™ Traveler, and the unique lineup of Clickfree™ Transformer products which allow consumers to take advantage of storage they already own - such as the DVD Transformer, HD Transformer Cable, and the new Transformer for iPod / iPhone and Transformer SE (Special Edition).

"Globally the consumer backup market segment is growing at an astounding rate. Over the past two years the market has grown by more than 400 percent, making it one of the fasting growing retail categories," said Bryan McLeod, CEO of Clickfree. "Our extended reach through these prominent distributors reflects the ever-increasing consumer need for Clickfree's solutions. Having the industry's most knowledgeable distributor network and service teams stand behind our line of products gives us the ability to provide first class service, support and distribution on a global basis. We expect this strong increase in sponsorship will enable continued significant sales growth for the coming quarters."
