What Is a Virtual Data Room?

Data Insights

A virtual dataroom (VDR) is an online repository that can store documents and other files. It can be used to transfer sensitive business information, for example, during mergers or acquisitions. Due diligence processes like fundraising rounds, due diligence procedures and financial audits are also common. As opposed to traditional physical storage, VDRs provide greater control over access and security, as well as decreasing management costs.

When selecting a VDR, choose one that has a comprehensive and robust set of features. This will meet your company’s needs. For instance, you might think about whether the platform meets ISO 27081 standards for data security or is equipped with robust virus and malware scanning, uptime that exceeds 99.9 percent, and multifactor authentication to ensure that your data is protected. Additionally, look for customizable options like color-coding to quickly identify certain documents during internal meetings and at-a-glance reporting that gives executives in the C-suite the comprehensive overview they require.

A VDR is most often used in M&A transactions, where potential buyers examine a variety of documents for the companies that are being sold. M&A virtual data rooms facilitate a more efficient due diligence process and lower the risk of a breach by restricting access to private information to only the people who need to access it. When conducting an M&A transaction users also benefit from the ability to work effectively with a VDR’s questions and answers and comments sections. This boosts productivity and speeds decision-making. Furthermore, M&A VDRs enable you to have full and complete audit trails, which are essential for M&A due diligence.
