Alera Technologies, developer and manufacturer of Advanced DVD and CD Recording Solutions, has announced that it is launching its new DVD/CD Shredder Plus; this media destruction device cuts DVDs, CDs, floppy disks, and credit cards into small unusable strips, permanently preventing unauthorized use and it is HIPAA compliant. With carbon steel blades and ½ horsepower motor, this industrial strength product is designed specifically for shredding DVDs, CDs, and floppy's. The DVD/CD Shredder Plus is equipped with a unique automatic start/stop feature and a 4 gallon receptacle to catch the pieces.

When information is stored on DVDs and CDs the amount of data and the danger of loss is enormous. 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.

Even when information is not considered confidential, it can be damaging if it falls into the wrong hands. Most companies' 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. When changes are made, they are typically to only small parts of the data and when changes are stored, all of the data is re-recorded on a new DVD or CD. The DVD or CD made before the changes still contains much sensitive and valuable information.

The DVD/CD Shredder has an estimated street price of only $99.
