Iron Mountain settles shredding suit for $800,000

Iron Mountain Inc., a Boston company that offers data storage and management services, has agreed to pay $800,000 to settle a whistle-blower lawsuit that alleged it failed to shred documents according to government standards, the US attorney’s office in Philadelphia said Tuesday.

The lawsuit alleged that Iron Mountain and a second company, Shred-it Inc., contracted with the government to provide shredding services but did not cut the government’s documents to the size required under standards established by the General Services Administration.
