Today, Spare Backup Inc. announced the launch of its ‘FileSafe™,’ product with Comet, a leading UK electricals retailer. FileSafe™, a remote, secure customer backup proposition, ensures that a customer’s precious and valuable electronic files are protected and readily available, even in the event of a hardware fault or total loss. The companies have jointly developed FileSafe, which is planned to be available in126 Comet stores.

“In the past we have spoken to other leading retailers in the UK but it was Comet that really wanted to seize the day and provide a safe and secure unlimited backup proposition for its customers, and at a very keen price point. We are delighted to have built FileSafe for such a forward thinking retailer and look forward to announcing other additions to the service in due course,” says Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup.

When expanding its business to offer simple, affordable product lines, Comet selected Spare Backup to give customers security and reassurance over their data protection services. FileSafe, available in stores now, comes with unlimited online data backup. It retails at 29.99 pounds and can be used by laptop and PC users.

Phil Elford, Comet Multimedia Category Buyer, explained, “We wanted to add a backup and cloud based solution to our retail proposition. The product needed to be activated in as few ‘clicks’ as possible and then provide the most extensive backup experience possible. The acid test for us was whether non-technical people could easily and securely backup their important files without any technical intervention. The in store launch will allow our customers to be made aware of the need and benefit for secure online data backup.”
