Iron Mountain and ITRenew to Offer Secure IT Asset Disposition to U.S. Government Agencies

As U.S. Federal agencies plan to replace outdated technology equipment, it becomes increasingly important to deploy IT asset disposition (ITAD) programs that ensure data security and provide e-waste recycling and value recovery services. To help address this growing challenge, Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the global leader in storage and information management, and ITRenew, a leader in IT lifecycle management, today announced a partnership that combines ITRenew’s ITAD software and services with Iron Mountain’s secure chain of custody and logistics to serve government entities and federal agencies across the U.S.

Iron Mountain’s end-to-end Secure IT Asset Disposition service enables agencies to safely and securely dispose of their equipment, including PCs and laptops, servers, hard drives and mobile devices, with the peace of mind that such disposal complies with applicable data security and e-waste disposal regulations. Through the combination of Iron Mountain and ITRenew, outdated government IT equipment will be securely transported and tracked through Iron Mountain’s secure chain of custody and delivered to ITRenew’s refurbishing and recycling facilities. ITRenew’s ITAD processing services will include 100 percent sector-verified data erasure, asset remarketing, R2-certified recycling and regulation compliance reporting. Data erasure will be performed with Teraware, ITRenew’s proprietary data sanitization platform.

“Our relationship with ITRenew offers Federal agencies a unique combination of secure logistics and environmentally-sustainable IT asset disposition and remarketing, with Teraware – their industry leading data erasure and asset management workflow platform,” said John Sharpe, general manager of Secure IT Asset Disposition at Iron Mountain. “Federal agencies are facing many of the same IT asset disposition challenges as the private sector, made more complicated by both the nature of the data stored on the equipment and the stringent regulations surrounding the storage and destruction of that data. The combination of ITRenew’s powerful software, services that are ADISA certified for data sanitization at a forensic level, and Iron Mountain’s reputation as the trusted guardian of our customers’ most important assets will deliver peace of mind to Federal agencies. They will know that their data and IT assets are managed and disposed of properly and safely.”

“This is a natural fit between two industry leaders, leveraging each other’s strengths to fill a market need,” said Aidin Aghamari, vice president of corporate strategy, ITRenew. “ITRenew has the national footprint, scalable architecture and remarketing expertise necessary to process anything from PCs to mobile devices to mass-storage devices with equal levels of security, efficiency and value recovery.”

This joint service offering will enable Federal agencies to:

  • Customize a secure IT asset recovery and environmentally sustainable disposition solution to fit their needs.
  • Reclaim value from viable retired equipment, in which assets are wiped clean of sensitive data for a certificate of sanitization, then tested, repaired and resold.
  • Leverage proven processes that ensure sensitive data will not get into the wrong hands and that it has been certifiably destroyed according to DoD NISPOM and NIST standards – either electronically via ITRenew’s Teraware software or physically destroyed.
  • Maintain environmental responsibility by working with an R2 certified recycler, in which electronic waste is disposed of properly to repurpose materials for future use.
