Company Opens New Data Center in Toronto in effort to Help Canadian Businesses Meet Privacy Compliance

BOSTON, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Iron Mountain Incorporated , the global leader in information protection and storage services, today announced that its Connected(R) Backup for PC and LiveVault(R) Server Backup solutions are now available directly to Canadian businesses via a new data center operated by the Company in Toronto, Canada. Now, businesses in Canada can enjoy the benefits of the world's leading PC and Server data protection solutions knowing their data is stored and protected in a Canadian data center operated by Iron Mountain.

In today's global business environment, ever-growing regulations combined with the explosive growth of data, make data protection and recovery a key priority for all organizations, regardless of location. Increased risks, ranging from natural disasters and human threats; to security breaches from viruses, worms and hackers; to the development of a litigious environment demanding quick retrieval for discovery purposes, can also make data protection and recovery extremely challenging.

"Increasing regulations, such as British Columbia's Bill 73 that amended the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, mandated that Governmental agencies in British Columbia in possession of personal data relating to individuals residing in British Columbia must retain such data in Canada," said Pierre Matteau, senior vice president, Iron Mountain Canada. "With the addition of our first Canadian data centers, Canadian businesses now have the comfort of partnering with Iron Mountain to store and protect their data, while maintaining compliance with today's regulations."

Iron Mountain's comprehensive distributed data protection solutions help thousands of corporations and tens of thousands of companies automatically and reliably back up and recover server and PC data; meet regulatory compliance requirements and contain storage costs. Iron Mountain's Connected Backup for PC solution is the undisputed No. 1 solution for automatic desktop and laptop data protection and recovery. The Connected Backup for PC solution virtually eliminates the risk of PC data loss by automatically backing up desktop and laptop computers as users go about their normal tasks. Additionally, Iron Mountain's LiveVault server backup is a complete server data protection solution for small and medium businesses, as well as remote offices and sites. Combining proven disk and online technologies, LiveVault radically simplifies the protection of servers including file, database, application and Microsoft Exchange servers, eliminating the burden of tape backup.

"We've had a growing demand from our customers worldwide for data protection solutions and services," said John Clancy, president, Iron Mountain Digital, the technology arm of Iron Mountain. "In addition to opening the data center in Canada, Iron Mountain Digital is actively broadening its global data center presence and in the process of opening a series of data centers outside of the U.S. and Canada, to better support our customers wherever they do business."
