Secure Your Vulnerable Business Data
And Your Reputation
Without off-site archiving, serious data loss could spell disaster for your business
It’s a plain fact that most businesses do not recover from
irretrievable data losses. Your reputation among customers
and suppliers may be damaged beyond repair, your company
and staff severely penalised. Serious breaches of the Data
Protection Act can now cost up to £500,000 in fines.
Your own in-house backups should be only one part of your
data protection strategy. Internal solutions alone cannot
protect you from natural disasters, fire, sabotage, terrorism,
hacking or burglary. In the event of a major disaster, you need
to know there’s a safe copy of your information off-site.
At Iron Mountain we offer a range of digital and physical
backup services. Alongside PC/server backup and email
archiving, we are a world leader in off-site data protection
and disaster recovery. When it comes to business-critical or
confidential data, your company’s continuity and reputation
are on the line. We specialise in keeping them both safe.

“Security and reliability for your critical data”
Off-Site, On Demand
How we keep track of your data
With the amount of information created and stored by
businesses increasing all the time, it’s more important than
ever to keep track of all your data.
Off-site digital tape storage has been around for some time
but studies show that, far from being ousted in favour of
more recent technologies, its usage is growing. Tape is a
proven and cost-effective yet highly trusted medium.
Scheduled or on-demand collection and archiving of digital
tape back-ups represents the best way to safeguard your
We will work with you to evaluate the level and frequency of
service you need and agree a schedule that fits in with your
own tape-management system.
“Tape backups are trusted and totally secure”
Always There For You
How our processes support you
The backbone of our service is our professional operations
team. Our vault librarians and drivers carry out the dayto-
day running of your account, ensuring your media is
collected, stored safely and delivered to you on time.
We can even change tapes if you use unstaffed sites.
The operations team is available 24/7 and because we have
the only national network of media vaults, there will always
be a secure vault within easy reach of your business.
As a customer, you’ll be provided with an account manager
who will communicate with you on a regular basis and
oversee the smooth running of your service.

number and an email reply service.

Protecting Your Business
How we help you stay legal
Your need for legal compliance will vary depending on the
kind of data generated and stored by your business.
For example, it is advised that all companies secure their
business-critical information off-site with a third party. Many
companies use our secure vaults for this kind of data.
