Inventory Audit

Know that your offsite media inventory was both complete and accurate

Unknown or unresolved media inventory discrepancies represent major risk to your organisation —especially when media that is unaccounted for could be requested at any time as part of an audit or litigation request, or in response to a disaster recovery incident. And it can require significant time, energy and expense to search for and locate misplaced media.

 It’s in your best interest to know your inventory is accurate and complete. Iron Mountain’s Inventory Audit service provides an extra measure of confidence by helping you identify exactly what data you have and where it resides.

Data Archiving Solutions

Data growth and retention policies are making archived data difficult to manage

Business data needs to be retained – either for compliance reasons or to maintain the integrity of the organisation. But data is growing fast and it’s overflowing. At this point you have so much data, you aren’t sure how to manage it. It’s all important information that needs to be maintained for the integrity of your business, but storing it has become a challenge.

Archived information is probably low priority data that you don’t always need. It’s your original data that is still important to your business. Knowing what data is stored on your archive tapes becomes critical any time you’re faced with an audit, litigation or discovery request.
