The DVD/CD Shredder Plus XC
Prevent theft or unauthorized use of discarded DVDs, CDs, and Credit Cards

CHATSWORTH, Calif., Oct. 24, 2005 -- Alera Technologies, Inc.,  developer and manufacturer of Aleratec Advanced USB, DVD/CD duplicating, recording, and digital imaging solutions is pleased to announce its new DVD/CD Shredder Plus XC, the next generation media destruction device that cross cuts DVDs, CDs, Credit Cards, and ATM Cards into small unusable bits, permanently preventing unauthorized use and it is HIPAA compliant. Also, it can shred 5 folded sheets of paper. The DVD/CD Shredder Plus XC has auto start, auto stop, reverse operation and is equipped with a slide out 3.5 Liter basket with a transparent window to catch the pieces. It even comes with a brush to clean the basket. Aleratec now has media shredder products based on three media destruction technologies: cross cut, strip cut, and embossing.

"The concerns about security and identity theft are greater now than ever before. With growing threats like business espionage and national security issues, we are proud to offer our Prosumer Users a higher performance data security tool. Our new DVD/CD Shredder Plus XC is compact and rugged, with a powerful cross cut media destruction mechanism that renders DVDs, and CDs unreadable and useless," states Perry Solomon, President and CEO of Alera Technologies. "Consider the damage that can be done and the cost incurred by a critical DVD or CD falling into the wrong hands. Imagine thieves or competitors getting important personal financial records, business customer lists, an entire accounting system or more. The DVD/CD Shredder Plus XC successfully provides the protection and peace of mind you need at a very low cost."

When information is stored on DVDs and CDs the amount of data and the danger of loss is enormous. Failure to securely dispose of discs containing sensitive data that has become partially obsolete has the potential to destroy you and your business. A single CD holds the equivalent of approximately 80 four-drawer cabinets of text data. One side of a single DVD disc holds about 560 four-drawer cabinets filled with data, seven times CD capacity.

Identity Theft and Fraud cost businesses $600 billion a year, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Last year's identity theft losses to businesses and financial institutions totaled nearly $48 billion and consumer victims reported $5 billion in out-of-pocket expenses according to a survey released by the FTC.

Even when information is not considered confidential, it will be damaging if it falls into the wrong hands. Most company trash contains a gold mine of information and taking items or information from someone's dumpster is entirely legal. Recording data and information of all types on DVD and CD discs is a growing practice and the problem of secure disposition of old discs is growing faster. When DVDs and CDs are used to store data or back up a system, usually all of the data on a subject is recorded.

The DVD/CD Shredder Plus XC is an exciting extension of the Aleratec Media Shredder line and is the ideal security tool for corporate, government, education, and consumer applications. With an improved Stylish Design and Compact Size, it fits perfectly in the Office or Home. The DVD/CD Shredder XC (Alera Technologies Part No. 240130, Ingram Micro SKU H12059) has a low estimated street price of only $119.99.
