Iron Mountain's Data Protection and Recovery services have the capability to offer a centralized program to monitor and test your media to ensure data integrity. The scope of the offering includes tape refreshing through a tape re-tensioning process, data conversion, duplication, tape destruction services, and recovery/reconstruction services for unreadable and damaged tape cartridges. Because Iron Mountain's Data Protection and Recovery services have a strict security policy that does not allow for any type of duplication equipment to be located within our vaults, all of these services are conducted at an off-site location. Iron Mountain helps reduce risk by utilizing the same secure end-to-end chain of custody in the transport of media for these services as for our normal tape vaulting services.

Secure Media Destruction provides a secure method for destroying certain non-paper based materials to a non recoverable form via high heat incineration and or granulation processing. Examples of acceptable materials can include microfiche/film, X-Rays, video tapes, CDs, gift cards, etc. When destroyed via the high heat destruction method these materials are reduced to a particle size small enough to render the information un-readable and un-recoverable. Iron Mountain is not NAID Certified for Media, Plastic, eWaste or Computer Hard Drive destruction services, which adhere to Iron Mountain's internal standards for Secure Media Destruction.
Secure Media Destruction projects are quoted on an individual project basis.
