Tape Backup and OffSite Tape Vaulting Services

Protecting critical business information offsite and offline provides confidence in recovering data when it’s needed

Your staff should focus on tasks that are important to the business. But with increasing amounts of critical business information needing to be backed up and protected, you're forced to spend time and money to manage the process, media and facilities.

By moving tapes offsite and into the care of a trusted third party with proven resources, chain-of-custody, technology and experience focused on protecting your data, you can reduce downtime and get back up and running – because your business depends on it.

Protecting and preserving business data offsite - meet compliance requirements while ensuring data availability

Dealing with the consequences of hardware malfunctions, human errors, software corruption and man-made or natural disasters can impact productivity. But the data has to be backed up and, more importantly, protected offsite so it’s available for recovery.

Iron Mountain® Offsite Tape Vaulting services provide you with a comprehensive data protection solution for transporting, storing, managing and retrieving your backup media from a secure, offsite facility.

We have the expertise to ensure you can get back up and running should the unexpected happen. Our rigorous chain-of-custody protocols and secure logistics ensures your critical information is protected while in transit and at rest. And, because your media is managed following proven procedures and best practices, you’ll be confident in your ability to find what you need when you need it, any time an internal or external source requests data from a specific tape.

Inventory Audit

Know that your offsite media inventory was both complete and accurate

Unknown or unresolved media inventory discrepancies represent major risk to your organisation -especially when media that is unaccounted for could be requested at any time as part of an audit or litigation request, or in response to a disaster recovery incident. And it can require significant time, energy and expense to search for and locate misplaced media.

It’s in your best interest to know your inventory is accurate and complete. Iron Mountain’s Inventory Audit service provides an extra measure of confidence by helping you identify exactly what data you have and where it resides.

Offsite Tape Vaulting - Employee scanning tape storage boxes

Depending on your needs and the reason you’re performing an audit, there are several Inventory Audit service options available to support you:

Inventory Comparison

Simple and effective, you submit your media barcode numbers via SecureSync® and we generate a report that shows any discrepancies. This is a no-charge service for current Iron Mountain® Offsite Tape Vaulting customers.

Logic Vault Audit

Scan and report. Iron Mountain scans all or a subset of the barcodes for your media stored in our vault. When complete, your authorised users receive a report of the findings, including any errors, duplicates and/or missing items.

Customer Scan

Roll up your sleeves and get hands on. Visit an Iron Mountain media vault and you’ll be given a space to work where you can perform an audit onsite using your own staff. Iron Mountain will assist you with the audit and help you resolve any discrepancies that may arise.
