How Secure Is a Virtual Data Room?

In our digital world, the need to preserve and protect sensitive business information efficiently and securely is crucial.

As the seller in any transaction, you need to be confident that potential buyers can only see the documents they need and there is no risk of unwanted exposure.

Virtual data rooms are online spaces that securely host confidential documents. Integral to merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions and material events, they ensure there is better control and oversight of multiple bidders while safeguarding your intelligence.

The difference between a virtual data room and a file sharing service is the level of control and security they can offer.

File sharing services are designed with basic file upload and download, folder creation, storage and sharing capabilities that produce a number of security risks.

  • There are no print, save, copy or export restrictions.
  • Parties retain documents permanently.
  • No audit trails on documents are provided.
  • There are no watermarks or document expiry.
  • Deal records exist in a variety of places, including email.
  • Security ends at the access to documents and folders.

But virtual data rooms offer extensive security and control features that reduce risks, increase efficiency and protect your sensitive information.

Virtual data room security ensures accidental disclosures are prevented, documents can be retracted at anytime and you will always be protected after the deal.

To execute a high-performance deal, you need high-performance tools. Ansarada’s Rooms bring dealmaking to the next level with AI-powered insights.
