How to Evaluate Virtual Data Rooms

A virtual dataroom serves to store and share sensitive documents during due diligence. This can include confidential corporate documents, intellectual properties patents, other proprietary information. The data needs to be secured from hackers or other individuals who could use it for their own benefit or sell it to competitors. VDRs do this by implementing strict permissions to block any unauthorized access. The data is also encrypted and is not mixed with other content from the enterprise, which adds a further layer of security.

When evaluating the quality of a VDR provider, it is important to consider their pricing model. Some VDRs have an initial cost, whereas others offer a yearly subscription that can save customers money over the course of. The majority of VDRs offer the opportunity to try a trial free of charge so that potential customers can "kick the tires" to check out the service in practice.


Often, large volumes of documents are shared during mergers and acquisitions as well tenders, capital raises and other strategic initiatives. Virtual data rooms facilitate this process to help companies make better and more efficient decisions.

The file system within a VDR must be user-friendly and easy to navigate. Organising files into directories, and optimizing their searchability are crucial aspects. The system must also track the activity of users and provide reports on it. This allows administrators to understand how users interact, and respond quickly when necessary. Many modern VDRs also offer mobile apps that give users the ability to access easily and quickly the data.
