Media Storage - How It Works
You invest a significant amount of resources protecting your data and backup media
But storing your business-critical information in-house can be time consuming to manage and leaves it vulnerable to risk
Driver: [There’s a lot that can happen if you’re storing your media at your office—from floods, fires, corruption and human errors, to deterioration from humidity and temperature changes.]
With an offsite storage solution from Iron Mountain, you can ensure your backup media is always protected when you don’t need it, and delivered to your doorstep when you do. Plus, it keeps you compliant with industry regulations.
So how does it work?
First, simply choose from a variety of media storage packages specifically tailored to your business needs.
From there, choose the type of media you want to store and we’ll provide you with containers and pre-configured inserts to properly hold and safely transport your media.
Then, all you have to do is decide how often and when you want us to pick up your containers.
Driver: [We can even deliver your stored media when we stop by to pick up your new materials. Because at the end of the day, we want to make things as easy as possible for you]
When your containers are ready, they’ll be picked up by your local, uniformed driver who is trained to follow our patented chain of custody—InControl Solution—ensuring your backup media is never lost or damaged.
For added security, we scan your containers at every touch point—at your office, and again when being placed into storage.
Warehouse worker: [We scan everything—From closed containers, the contents inside open containers, scanning is a big part of what we do to maintain our rigorous chain of custody.]
Once in storage, your backup media is protected in temperature and humidity controlled racks, and kept safe by perimeter fences, 24/7 security monitoring and restricted keycard access.
And with the Iron Mountain SecureSync Inventory management portal, you can easily access what you need—and have it instantly delivered to your doorstep—when you need it.
