Aleratec announces the DVD/CD Shredder XC ... Providing Protection and Peace of Mind at a Low Cost!

Chatsworth, CA - December 8, 2009 - Aleratec Inc., leading developer and manufacturer of "Prosumers' Choice" solutions for the USB, Flash, HDD, Blu-ray, DVD CD, duplicating, and DVD/CD publishing markets, introduced today its newest product, the DVD/CD Shredder XC.

The DVD/CD Shredder XC is a state-of-the-art device that shreds Blu-ray/DVD/CD optical discs, credit cards and paper. Dedicated bins exist for either paper or plastic. The paper shredder performs a cross cut operation, which virtually destroys the original format. Aleratec is proud to offer the simple, quickest and easiest method of preventing unauthorized use of sensitive data recorded on your discarded discs. With a Blu-ray, DVD or CD falling into the wrong hands, all of your personal financial records or business customer lists, an entire accounting system or more could be lost or used against you. With the growing threat of hazards like identity theft the DVD/CD Shredder XC provides protection and peace of mind at a low cost.

"Identity Theft and Fraud are major concerns for every company and individual today," stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO, "Aleratec wanted to do its part by providing this commercial strength cross cut shredder solution to our customers and their businesses. Having a low-cost, convenient way to destroy the data is the first step!"
