Secure Tape Transportation and Management
Reliably track the progress of your backup media along every step of the transportation route
Many of the risks of data loss and theft associated with confidential information are at their highest during transport, especially with unencrypted data. Choosing Iron Mountain for secure, data transportation is one way to help minimise those risks for your most critical data.
Iron Mountain InControl® solution installed in dedicated vehicles securely transports your business information and delivers patented security, tracking and auditable chain of custody.
Here's how it works:
The solution includes:
BackupCare for Tape Vaulting
Reduce the burden on your IT Staff to manage backup processes at remote data centres
Whether your current data centre is situated at a remote, unstaffed location, or if you happen to “stand up” your data center in a third-party colocation facility, you already know – all too well – how remote sites or isolated servers add a layer of complexity to staffing, training and internal processes for your organisation.
Take the burden off your IT staff from managing a remote data center facility by letting Iron Mountains knowledgeable specialists handle the backup and data protection process.
MediaCare for Tape Vaulting
Ensure your backup media — especially from remote office locations — reaches its storage destination safe and secure
You’ve invested significantly in backing up your data and you want to make sure it is protected at all times. In some cases you may move your backup data to another region of the country; perhaps your data center is in an area that is prone to natural disasters or is in a remote location.
Even when transporting your media via a third-party, you can take comfort in knowing that Iron Mountain will care for as if it were our own. Protect your sensitive data with MediaCare™… because it matters.
- Help remote offices adhere to your data backup and recovery program
- Achieve a unified view of your backup media regardless of how it’s transported to the Iron Mountain vault
- Accelerate response times to audit, legal discovery and disaster recovery events
