You need regular access to files and records. But managing an ever growing number of documents in local file rooms consumes valuable storage space, overburdens staff and leaves your organization at risk of information loss and compliance violations.
Iron Mountain’s File Room Solution replicates your onsite file room within a secure, offsite storage environment. Whether you choose to relocate all your documents or just a select few, you can rest assured knowing your active files are stored on specialized racking in our secure and compliant Record Centers. With our solution, active files are managed according to your filing system—with retrievals, refiles, interfiles and dropfiling performed by our expert staff. 

Offsite Doesn’t Mean Offline

Records are tracked and searchable using Iron Mountain Connect our online hub, so you can find records at any time. With just a few clicks, you can search through your offsite inventory, locate what’s required to satisfy an internal or external request and arrange for it to be quickly scanned or delivered by one of our vetted and trained employees.

With our File Room Solution, you’ll free-up valuable real estate and staff—without sacrificing visibility and rapid access to active files.

File Room Data Sheet

Offload the management of your file rooms by leveraging Iron Mountain's expertise, infrastructure, and experienced staff.



A government entity had an old on-site file room that was both hurting productivity due to the clutter and volume. The file room was also taking up valuable space that could have been used for more productive and strategic activities. A space vacuum had been created, in which a space is unnecessarily occupied by physical items such as files and boxes.


Iron Mountain collaborated closely with this government entity, understanding the classified nature of the files that were to be moved. Moving all the records to an off-site file room allowed the government entity to utilize the space for higher priority activities while maintaining the sensitive records that were previously stored.
