Iron Mountain supports IT asset lifecycle management with services for many industries.

IT asset lifecycle management (ALM)

Contact Sales

One of the most valuable assets and resources that your company owns is its data. It’s also important to your team because competitors and cybercriminals are also itching to get their digital hands on your data, which is why you need to protect your information from the time it is created until it's securely destroyed.

To protect your data, it’s imperative that the hardware assets on which your data resides are governed by effective asset lifecycle management (ALM). Secure destruction is key to keeping this resource safe, but it's also important to do so during its entire lifecycle.

Asset lifecycle management is a strategic approach to IT enterprise asset management that protects your data, ensures optimised utilisation, maximises your return on investment, and minimises your environmental impact.

Iron Mountain can partner with you to develop a program that cares for your IT assets from deployment and active usage to retirement and disposition, supported by our industry-leading data security and sustainability measures.

Iron Mountain’s ALM services include:

  • Configuration, imaging, asset tagging, rollout, and discovery
  • Inventory management and deployment
  • Decommissioning and data erasure
  • Remarketing, reclaiming, and recycling to recover value

Your sensitive data. Our best-in-class security.

At every step of the ITAD journey, we provide meaningful end-to-end data protection. Starting with world-class logistics and global tracking services, we send our fleet of purpose-built trucks with advanced security features, operated by our carefully vetted and trained personnel, right to your doors. We then process your assets, ensuring a transparent, audit-ready, and traceable chain of custody with complete and comprehensive data destruction.

Deliver maximum value recovery and drive ROI

 
 

Deliver maximum value recovery and drive ROI

With more frequent individual device and data centre infrastructure refresh cycles, maximising agility, efficiency, and return on investment (ROI) is key for your competitive edge. Through our data centre remarketing services, customers report higher value recovery versus competitors, which helps fund tech refreshes and alleviate stretched budgets.

From onsite data sanitisation, de-installation, and device pickup to sustainable asset disposition, having one partner streamlines operations while reducing maintenance costs and managing security risks.

Where sustainability is the new it norm

 
 

Where sustainability is the new it norm

Continuous technological innovation has produced an explosion of e-waste which has resulted in increased regulation focused on improving global sustainability. At every step of the way, we work with our customers to reduce their carbon emissions and e-waste.

By enabling faster and less disruptive refresh cycles, we make it easier for companies to quickly deploy newer, more efficient, and environmentally friendly technology. At the same time, our remarketing and recycling programs minimise the amount of material entering waste streams. And our comprehensive, audit-ready reporting helps you manage performance against your ESG targets.

With most IT teams fully consumed by their “day jobs”—setting up new employees’ computers, managing network security, deploying and supporting applications, and maintaining infrastructure—there’s almost no time left to focus on best practices for IT asset disposition. Inadequate attention dedicated to the proper disposition of IT assets leads to increased risks, including loss of control over confidential data, lack of compliance, and impacted financial performance.
