Spare Backup Solution to Be Offered for In-Store Installation at Circuit City Locations Nationwide
Monday August 7, 4:03 pm ET
PALM DESERT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 7, 2006--Newport International Group (OTCBB:NWPO - News) announced today that its Spare Backup Inc. subsidiary and Circuit City Stores Inc. (NYSE:CC - News), a leading specialty retailer of consumer electronics, will offer a free 30-day, no-obligation trial of the online backup service on all new computer purchases starting early this month.
Through automatic daily backups, the service provides comprehensive protection of the customer's data, photo and music files. Circuit City's PC services team will install the service at the store.
After the free 30-day trial, the customer will have the option to continue with the online backup service for as little as $4.99 per month for unlimited backup, subject to the terms and conditions on the Spare Backup Web site and in the end-user agreement. Spare Backup will receive a monthly recurring revenue stream from customers who subscribe to the service on an ongoing basis.
"Many people don't bother to back up the data on their PC because it takes time and effort, and that puts them at substantial risk for data loss. Our Spare Backup solution removes the pain," said Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup Inc. "This agreement with Circuit City not only gives PC owners an option to try before they buy, but it also provides a new and highly visible marketing channel for the service. This is a significant development in our efforts to increase market penetration and demonstrate the value of our service to potential long-term customers."
Spare Backup is a fully automated remote backup solution. It starts by scanning the user's hard drive, including the desktop and e-mail programs, for files and application components necessary to produce an exact replica of the original. Then it transports the data daily, including new and revised files, to twin data centers on both U.S. coasts. Files are triple-encrypted and can be accessed from any broadband, Web-connected computer anywhere. For more information and a free trial, visit
