Spain Launch Latest in Rapid International Expansion; Online Backup Provider Now Protects Data in Eight Countries

TORONTO, Sep 30, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- Online data storage and backup service Data Deposit Box launched today in Spain, where it will be known as Zendal Backup. The Spain launch is the latest in Data Deposit Box's international expansion, particularly in areas where broadband growth is skyrocketing.

The company's reach has been growing rapidly overseas, with six languages currently supported, including English, Danish, French, German, Spanish and Swedish. Data Deposit Box has also added support for merchant accounts in Europe using DIBS Payment Services, enabling wholesale partners to launch their ecommerce businesses in Denmark ( http://www.saveme.dk/) and Spain ( http://backup.zendal.net/).

The international expansion has occurred in direct correlation to the growing number of broadband users internationally. For example, 70 to 80 percent of residents in Scandinavian countries have broadband access, and of the 410 million files Data Deposit Box has backed up, nearly seven million files have been backed up in each Denmark and Sweden. In fact, customer numbers in Denmark and Sweden are growing at 110 percent year over year, five percent faster than growth in the U.S.

"Data protection is obviously not something that only affects the U.S. and Canada," says Jamie Brenzel, CEO of Data Deposit Box. "As broadband use grows and we think more about the global marketplace, it becomes increasingly important to back up data with a secure, encrypted online backup provider. Companies around the world need to be able to access that data anytime, anywhere securely."
Brenzel also believes that having a remote data center based in Canada is attractive to customers. In addition to continual data encryption, Data Deposit Box customers' information is largely safe from natural disaster. Unlike parts of the U.S. and Europe, Toronto's weather patterns are stable year round. The Toronto-based data center provides added security from another factor as well.

"Canada does not have the privacy issues that came into play in the U.S. after September 11, such as border agents being allowed to confiscate laptops when entering the country, so many customers feel more secure knowing their data can be accessed remotely from Canada," says Brenzel.

Data Deposit Box is a secure and comprehensive online data storage and backup service that enables users to affordably and simply backup, restore, and share information online for $2 per GB per month. Once the software is installed, it can be customized to backup as many or as few files as desired. Data Deposit Box then runs invisibly in the background and engages when the computer is connected to the Internet, continuously monitoring 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 can securely access files remotely from any web browser.
