The need to efficiently dispose large quantities of documents in the workplace has transformed the simple paper shredder into an advanced piece of office equipment.

Identity theft was something you read about in the papers, and not something that would seriously concern most businesses. Fast-forward to 2010 where the secure destruction of information has become an absolute must for every company in America. As data and identity thieves have become more sophisticated, so to has the paper shredder.
