  Iron Mountain Joins Forces with Paragon Solutions, Adding Services for

ARMA 2013

BOSTON -- October 28, 2013

Iron Mountain® Incorporated (NYSE: IRM) can now advise customers on how best
to store and manage electronic files, thanks to a new relationship with
Paragon Solutions, an advisory consulting and systems integration firm.

Paragon’s expertise in managing electronic records rounds out Iron Mountain’s
existing consulting services and solutions for hardcopy documents. The
combination of the two firms now gives customers a more comprehensive partner
that can help them better store, access and use their information, regardless
of its format.

Announced today at the start of the ARMA 2013 Conference & Exhibition, the
relationship offers clients a mix of technology and consulting for tackling
common information challenges. These include ensuring information pertinent to
a lawsuit can be found quickly, improving records-retention policies and
implementing enterprise content management technology.

“Our customers must manage a complex data environment of physical and
electronic information, making sure it’s both secure and accessible,” said
Blaine Rigler, senior vice president and general manager, Records Management
for Iron Mountain. “To help our clients meet their challenges, we seek
partners who can complement our strengths and make our offerings as
comprehensive as our customers’ needs. Paragon better enables us to help
organizations achieve information governance.”

The practice of information governance inside most companies strives to
mitigate risks like potential data loss, regulatory noncompliance and
discovery unpreparedness, with the rewards of uncovering business intelligence
in the data. The job has never been more complex with the rapid growth of
information and the expanding landscape of regulations.

“We think this is an ideal marriage, coupling Paragon’s years of digital
information governance expertise with Iron Mountain to deliver a complete set
of solutions our mutual clients need and value,” said Erik Raper, senior vice
president, corporate alliances for Paragon Solutions.

Iron Mountain’s solutions allow organizations to centralize the management of
physical and electronic records, making it easier to apply one set of policies
for access rights, retention periods and destruction protocols, regardless of
where information is stored. The company offers consulting for assessing and
improving records programs, as well as services for information destruction,
data backup and recovery, and document scanning. As a result, organizations
can find information faster, lower their risks of noncompliance and cut
storage costs.
