Iron Mountain asserts its support to businesses in the UAE during their digital transformation journey

“Policy Centre Solution” is now available in the UAE

Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the storage and information management services company has recently expanded its services portfolio in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with the introduction of the “Policy Centre Solution” program.

“Policy Centre Solution” is a cloud-based retention and privacy policy management platform that provides a user-friendly way for companies to know their obligations and show compliance. This is of course adapted to the UAE’s legal regulations. Additionally, it is tailored to incorporate the unique guidelines that the company using it has to abide by.

What does that mean and how is it important?

Nowadays, it is safe to say that the biggest share of companies in the UAE acknowledge digital transformation as unavoidable for survival in the long run. While a lot of companies have been on this journey for years already, others were forced to rush into it with the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Naturally, the process hasn’t been easy on many. As a matter of fact, a recent report by Boston Consulting Group (BCG), showed that approximately 70 percent of organizations globally are faced with challenges in their digital transformation journey and have failed or are falling short in those attempts.«آيرون ماونتن» توفر للشركات”حلول مركز السياسات”

Here’s the thing about digital transformation; It is centred around technology, and technology is always evolving. Accordingly, it is an ongoing process that requires continuous development as companies evolve and grow. Having said that, as essential as this is to the survival of businesses regardless of their size, if not managed properly and quickly, it can do more harm than good.

With increased reliance on technology, cybersecurity can be jeopardized easily if the right measures are not in place. In parallel, non-adherence to legal regulations is not always intentional and the optimization of the use of data and information is not straightforward. In all cases, the loss can be significant.

Accordingly, programs like “Policy Centre Solution” are more important for companies than ever.

This program allows businesses to manage their information through the entire information life-cycle – from creation, to use, to disposition.

Maintaining accurate document retention and adhering to current privacy policies helps companies reduce the risk of fines. It can also give back to businesses by saving on information storage costs through confidently disposing unneeded data without security risks. Lastly, employees can be so much more efficient when able to quickly access their needed documents and information on the spot. This program allows that.

Ultimately, record retention and privacy policy management platforms significantly support in streamlining all aspects of businesses, resulting in a more confident, safe, and profitable business.

As companies in the UAE are increasingly realizing the unavoidable path towards digital transformation, IRM is committed to supporting them by continuously bringing the tools required to ensure this journey is as smooth and rewarding as possible.
