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

Asset lifecycle management

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

Your company’s data is valuable—to you, to your competitors… and to cybercriminals

From the time it’s created until it’s 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 ALM?

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

When you partner with Iron Mountain, we work with you to develop a program that cares for your assets from deployment and active use to retirement and disposition, supported by our industry-leading data security and sustainability measures—every step of the way.

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

*subject to geographic availability

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

Learn how to identify new requirements and select and procure assets with Iron Mountain asset life management services.
The three most important tasks to execute correctly, and to which ITAD executives should pay special attention, are transportation logistics/chain of custody, data sanitization, and recycling.

Data security is at the core of everything we do

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

At every stage 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 more than 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 data center remarketing services, customers report higher value recovery versus competitors, which helps fund tech refreshes and alleviate stretched budgets

From onsite data sanitization, deinstallation, and device pickup to sustainable ITAD, 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.

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.
