Completely Remove Unwanted Confidential Files With Secure Delete

Watsonville, CA-April 9, 2002 – Aladdin Systems, Inc., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Aladdin Systems Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB: ALHI), today shipped
Secure Delete(tm), a data deletion tool for the Macintosh that completely
and permanently erases selected files by overwriting them. Secure Delete is
available for download at: (

Secure Delete is a Macintosh application designed to help remove any file
by using Drag & Drop. This is especially helpful when dealing with
confidential files. Secure Delete overwrites the section of the hard drive
that contained that file. Once a file has been deleted with Secure Delete
it will not be recovered.

“Simply throwing a file in the Trash doesn’t ensure that a file can’t be
retrieved again by someone going through your computer,” said Pauline
Shumake, product manager. “It’s important to use Secure Delete to
effectively remove private files so they don’t get into the wrong hands.”

For laptop owners and those who share a computer, Secure Delete makes it
easy to ensure that no one else can retrieve the safely-deleted

Pricing, Availability and Requirements
Secure Delete has a suggested U.S. street price of $25 and is available
directly from Aladdin at ( or via customer
service at or (831)761-6200.

higher (including Mac OS X), with at least 8MB of RAM.
