Iron Mountain, an information management services company, has acquired Santa Clara, Calif.-based Mimosa Systems, a provider of enterprise-class content archiving solutions. The deal provides Iron Mountain with an integrated archive for e-mail and files and gives the company an on-premises archiving option to complement its existing cloud-based archives.

Mimosa NearPoint is an enterprise archiving platform with applications for retention and disposition, e-Discovery, compliance supervision, classification, recovery, and end-user search, enabling customers to reduce risk and lower their e-Discovery and storage costs. Customers wanting to archive e-mail can now choose either NearPoint for onsite archiving or Iron Mountain’s Total E-mail Management Suite, powered by Mimecast technology, for archiving e-mail in the cloud. Additionally, customers can use Iron Mountain’s Digital Record Center for Compliant Messaging for e-mail that must meet SEC regulations and supervision.

The addition of the NearPoint content archive also offers customers an enhanced eDiscovery solution set for quickly finding content and applying legal holds across e-mail, file, and SharePoint data. For larger litigation matters, organizations can easily transfer their on-site data to Iron Mountain’s cloud solution, Stratify Legal Discovery Service. For smaller matters or in instances where companies want to begin the eDiscovery process on their own, they can do so on-site with Iron Mountain’s early case assessment tool for eDiscovery, eVantage.
