BOSTON, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Iron Mountain Incorporated , the global leader in information protection and storage services, today announced the availability of its Digital Record Center(TM) for Images, which provides businesses hosted storage and easy access to scanned images, PDFs and other digital files. This new offering rounds out a portfolio of document management services from Iron Mountain that help organizations scan and store their physical records for better control of their information. The Digital Record Center for Images now supplies a home for accessing those scanned images as well as other digital files, giving customers a more complete solution for managing the lifecycle of their information.

"We've long helped our clients manage their physical records and convert these paper documents to digital files; now, with the Digital Record Center for Images, we're offering them a cost-effective repository for accessing those digital files," said Chris Churchill, vice president of document management solutions at Iron Mountain. "By integrating these three services, we offer customers a comprehensive, single-source solution for using their information and ensuring its security."
