VDR as a secure work environment
A secure virtual data room in contrast to file-sharing platforms for consumer use that are not secure, offers an online repository for all final documents of an organization. It also encourages collaboration within an unsecure environment. It enables businesses to securely share information with external partners without disrupting workflow or risking their valuable intellectual property being mishandled by rivals. It also offers many collaboration tools, such as document annotations, Q&A sections and detailed monitoring of activity to can improve the efficiency of the process workflow.
The best virtual data rooms also have solid security features that make them immune to cyber-attacks and data breaches. They use industry-leading encryption technologies that scramble sensitive information. Executives can set up granular permissions, so that no one has access to files without their permission. In addition, they include multi-factor authentication to verify that the user is who they claim they are, and also login monitoring that records the IP address as well as the type of device and the location of users to help ensure that they are not accessed by anyone else.
The best VDRs include built-in software to control the version of the file, which tracks who has viewed which data file and when. They also come with redaction tools to detect keywords and other sensitive data patterns in the documents, and then remove them from screen copies and download editions. They also include audit logs that track all VDR activities to allow administrators to monitor and report suspicious or illegal activity. They are also available in basic pricing models, similar to those of internet and mobile phone providers. They charge a base price, plus additional charges depending on the capabilities.
