How It Works
Iron Mountain operates an extensive network of vaulting facilities. These specialized facilities are strategically located to serve major disaster recovery centers during emergencies and disaster testing, in addition to daily backup tape vaulting requirements.
Your backup data is always secure and protected with precise workflow processes that provide chain of custody for media. Our secure, climate-controlled vehicles are manned by highly trained personnel, and media is brought to our vaulting facilities with the protection of multiple-layer security. Iron Mountain recommends encrypting all media before transport whenever possible to ensure the highest possible level of data security when combined with Iron Mountain's off-site tape vaulting solution.
Iron Mountain's off-site media vaults maintain the following environmental specifications:
Temperature: 68-72 degrees F.
Humidity: 35-45% humidity.
