Geek Squad to Provide Secure Online Backup Solutions Through Partnership With Data Deposit Box™

Best Buy Canada's Geek Squad Joins the Data Deposit Box Powered By Partner Program to Offer Online Data Backups

TORONTO--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) - Today, Data Deposit Box announced that Best Buy Canada will join its Powered By partnership program. Customers will enjoy seamless access to the Data Deposit Box offering through Best Buy's Geek Squad. Data Deposit Box is a secure and comprehensive online data storage and sharing service that enables users to affordably and simply backup, restore, and share information online.

Through this Powered By partnership, Geek Squad Agents will offer the Data Deposit Box service to customers they assist with in-home or in-office service calls. Through direct customer billing of only $2 per gigabyte per month, Data Deposit Box will store customer data in a carrier-grade secure data facility.

"The Powered By partnership between Data Deposit Box and the Geek Squad will provide customers with an easy-to-use, low-cost online backup solution," said Jamie Brenzel, CEO of Data Deposit Box. "As a hosted solution, Data Deposit Box is perfect for those looking for efficiency, security and great value, and initiating this service through an industry leader like the Geek Squad will also mean a convenient experience."

"Our partnership with Data Deposit Box is an excellent way for our Geek Squad Agents to further enhance our customers' data security," said Andrew Grantham, national sales and service manager, Best Buy and the Geek Squad. "In addition, this service is also an excellent way for our small business customers serviced through our Best Buy for Business area of our stores to see increased productivity with minimal investment. For this reason, we anticipate a great response from this customer base."

Once the software is installed, it just takes a few minutes to backup the selected files and folders. Data Deposit Box then runs in the background and engages when the computer is turned on and continuously monitors selected folders. Data Deposit Box is automatic -- when a change is detected, it is immediately extracted, compressed, encrypted and then securely transferred to a remote server.

After creating a backup with Data Deposit Box customers investing in this service will be able to access files remotely from any web browser. By logging into the secure website, customers can search for, select and download files to any PC. Then within moments, customers can select a file and have it restored back to their PC.
