Iron Mountain will strengthen its Service Offer Portfolio by adding IT Asset Disposition Services from CloudBlue, an Ingram Micro Company
BOSTON, MA – April 28, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — As technology moves at an unprecedented pace and data is growing daily, organizations are creating more e-Waste that requires a secure solution for disposition. Iron Mountain (NYSE: IRM) and CloudBlue, an Ingram Micro Company (NYSE: IM), today announced a new service offer that brings together distinct capabilities in security, services, and scale from two industry leading information management companies.
Iron Mountain will offer CloudBlue’s IT Asset Disposition services paired with Iron Mountain’s secure chain of custody and logistics. Unlike other solutions available today, the combination of Iron Mountain and CloudBlue means customers’ equipment will be picked up by trained and vetted Iron Mountain employees and tracked through Iron Mountain’s secure chain of custody and delivered to CloudBlue’s facilities for processing.
Customers take data security very seriously and when IT assets have reached their end of life, it’s important to take disposal of those assets and related data seriously. CloudBlue provides secure and sustainable disposition solutions for enterprises worldwide and was named a Leader in Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for IT Asset Disposition, Worldwide.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Asset Disposition, Worldwide, states: “The three most important tasks to execute correctly, and to which ITAD executives should pay special attention, are data sanitization, transportation logistics and recycling. These three areas constitute the greatest risk in the ITAD process, so they should be handled by an experienced, well-vetted ITAD service vendor.”*
“Our relationship with CloudBlue offers customers a unique combination of secure logistics and environmentally-friendly IT asset disposition,” said Eileen Sweeney, senior vice president and general manager of Data Management, Iron Mountain. “Combining CloudBlue’s expertise in data destruction, refurbishment and remarketing, and recycling; with Iron Mountain’s solid reputation as a trusted protector of data and assets, should provide businesses with peace of mind knowing their data and IT assets are managed and disposed of properly and safely. As more mobile devices contain sensitive data and technology refresh cycles continue to shorten, this combination will be one to watch and partner with moving forward.”
“This is an incredible collaboration between two global data protection leaders,” said Ken Beyer, vice president and general manager, Supply Chain Solutions, Ingram Micro and president, CloudBlue. “The unique combination of our IT asset disposition solutions and Iron Mountain’s secure transportation provides organizations with unparalleled chain of custody, data security and confidence.”
This new service offer will enable Iron Mountain customers to:
