Defra trials data storage portal

Antony Savvas

Iron Mountain is launching its Iron Mountain Connect customer storage portal in the UK, and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) is the first to trial it.

The portal is for organisations across all industry sectors facing the increasing pressure of regulatory compliance. It is designed to give users a more flexible approach to records management.

Iron Mountain Connect gives businesses a single point of entry for all stored files, with total visibility of all transactions, and the ability to access information when required, while retaining a strict retention schedule so that only essential files are kept.

The portal has more than 35,000 unique users in the US, where the service was first launched.

Mike Kaye, departmental record officer at Defra, said, “Iron Mountain Connect is intuitive, fast and provides reliable search results with a substantial amount of valuable business information displayed on individual file series.

“Everyone in the Defra records team has welcomed the benefits. The task of ordering/retrieving files is much more in line with the best internet shopping packages, and the time needed for training is minimal.”
