How to Choose a VDR Provider

Virtual data rooms (VDRs) are a vital tool for managing and sharing information securely, whether you're facilitating a M&A transaction, working with partners outside of your firewall, or sharing confidential client data. All VDR providers are not created equal. In fact, choosing the wrong VDR could expose your company to security risks and costs. There's a simple way to determine which VDR service providers are worth your money.

When you're looking for a VDR to purchase, read online reviews and visit their websites. You can also chat with a representative on the phone or via live chat to get a sense of how they respond to your questions and concerns.

When choosing a provider, ensure that they offer a variety of features to suit your needs. Included in this are features for document security, collaboration and file management. Look for a provider who offers two-factor authentication, which will prevent password thefts, and advanced security measures such as dynamic data encryption and watermarks.

A modern VDR is one that leverages new business models and technology innovations like software-as-a-service delivery. This allows for a competitive pricing without compromising control and security.

While traditional VDRs focus on M&A transaction, a VDR of the modern era can be used for any business or team who requires a high-level of collaboration and safety controls. Examples include law firms and banks, mortgage brokers, hedge funds, private equity firms, venture capital firms, and venture capital companies.
