The introduction of totally automatic backup products for networks, BlackBerry and SD finally empower the entire family, small office and mobile user to backup important data quickly and easily
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Jan. 6, 2010) - Today, Clickfree, the inventors of effortless computer backup, launched Network and Ultra Portable Backup solutions at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show. Clickfree's award-winning solutions have set the standard for simple backup, making powerful features accessible to the mass market who just don't have the time or technical savvy to perform backup.
With Clickfree's new BackupLink technology featured in the new C2N backup drive series – backing up multiple computers across your home or office network is now completely automatic. Connect the C2N by USB, only one time, to each computer on the network, leave it connected to one of the computers and C2N will automatically backup all of the computers. Clickfree delivers another industry first by completely automating the set-up of a backup device for multiple computers in the home or office - it's truly click free. No IT or computer knowledge is required, the C2N follows the same degree of simplicity found in all Clickfree products – no set-up, configuration or reading is required to perform backup.
"Our C2N brings a new level of simplicity to network backup for the home or office. To take away any set-up or configuration requirements to perform multiple computer backup on a network is truly a breakthrough, said Bryan McLeod, CEO Clickfree Automatic Backup. "Imagine your mother, sister or brother now able to set-up a home network backup by simply plugging in our device once into each of the computers. We believe this takes convenience to a whole new level."
Also unveiled was the Transformer Network Edition Adapter with BackupLink technology. Owners of any external USB hard drive coupled with the Transformer NE can have the same backup experience, features and automatic network set-up function that are in the C2N.
The C2N and Transformer Network Edition will be available in February at www.clickfree.com and other major retailers. Available in 250GB ($159.99), 320GB ($179.99), 500GB ($199.99), 640GB ($219.99) The Transformer Network Edition will retail for $99.99
