BOSTON -- Iron Mountain, Inc., (NYSE: IRM), the global leader in information protection and storage services, and IBM today announced plans for a unified offering that combines Iron Mountain's Accutrac(R) software for physical records management with IBM FileNet Records Manager, providing companies with an integrated solution for viewing and managing paper and electronic documents. The joint solution will address customer demand for one system capable of keeping physical and electronic records in compliance with regulations and providing quick access to information in the event of litigation.

"Organizations are drowning in data of all types, and they're increasingly challenged by retaining and destroying it in a consistent manner," said Greg Nicastro, executive vice president of Iron Mountain'sIntegrated Solutions Group. "They can't afford to rely on one system for their paper records and another for their digital data. It breeds inconsistency, wasted time and money. And by using two systems for managing information, companies increase their risk for noncompliance. Our relationship with IBM combines our expertise in records management with IBM's market-leading technology for managing electronic records."
