Aleratec Launches New 28-Liter Desk-Side
DVD/CD, Credit Card and Paper Shredder

Chatsworth, CA - July 27, 2010 - Aleratec Inc. announced today the launch of its new DVD/CD Shredder Plus DS18, an easy-to-use media shredder for reliably protecting the private information of organizations and individuals.

Identity theft and fraud are our nation's fastest growing crimes. Last year ID theft cases increased by 12% amounting to 11.1 million in the United States alone, while the total annual fraud amount increased by 12.5% to $54 billion according to Javelin Strategy and Research. With the DVD/CD Shredder Plus DS18, you have a proactive solution. Protecting yourself and your business is practically effortless with this cutting-edge desk side crosscut shredder which makes slicing up Blu-ray discs, DVDs, CDs and credit cards simple and easy. Not only will this cross shredder handle your optical discs and credit cards, it is an 18-sheet paper shredder as well.

Complete with a proven safety auto-start, auto-stop and reverse mechanism, this shredder is fast, safe and user-friendly. It includes three different slots for different types of material: one for Blu-ray discs, DVDs and CDs, another for credit cards, and a third for up to 18 sheets of paper. All materials will be shredded into 4 by 32 millimeter cross-cut pieces which are collected in a convenient, 28 liter basket.

"Proper disposal of sensitive digital information on Blu-ray, DVD and CD discs is a top priority for many of our customers, as it should be for any organization or individual that stores private information in this way," stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO. "The DVD/CD Shredder Plus DS18 provides 4 by 32 millimeter cross-cut security and is a robust solution tailored to the needs of departments, small offices and individuals."
