Protect your data. Protect the environment. Protect your bottom line.

Your company’s data is valuable — to you, to competitors, and to cybercriminals. From the time it is created until it is securely destroyed, data is one of your most powerful resources.

To protect your data, it’s imperative to protect the hardware assets your data resides on through effective asset lifecycle management (ALM).

What is IT asset lifecycle management?

It’s a strategic approach to IT asset management that protects your data, ensures optimized use, maximizes your return on investment, and minimizes your environmental impact.

We can partner with you to develop a program that cares for your 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

Here’s how our approach to Asset Lifecycle Management elevates your IT practices to help you maximize efficiency, reduce risk, increase competitive advantage, and exceed your environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals.

Our End-to-End Approach to IT Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM) - Identify New Requirements, Select & Procure Assets

The Iron Mountain Advantage

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


At every step of the IT asset disposition (ITAD) journey, we provide meaningful end-to-end data protection. Starting with world-class logistics and global tracking services, we send our fleet of over 3,000 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


With more frequent individual device and data center infrastructure refresh cycles, maximizing agility, efficiency, and return on investment (ROI) is key for your competitive edge. Through our remarketing services, customers report up to 45% higher recovery value, which helps fund tech refreshes and alleviate stretched departmental budgets. From onsite data sanitization, deinstallation, and device pickup to sustainable asset disposition, having one partner streamlines operations while reducing costs and managing security risks.

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 minimize the amount of material entering waste streams. And, our comprehensive, audit-ready reporting helps you manage performance against your ESG targets.

Unmatched offerings with a global reach


Your success is our success. With every interaction, we take the complexity and worry out of managing IT asset disposition for enterprises at any scale. We pride ourselves on a unique combination of global reach with a local focus that meets our customers wherever they do business, now offering ITAD services in over 30 countries.
