Data Room Pros and Cons

When companies need to provide confidential documents to potential buyers during due diligence virtual data rooms provide an efficient method of doing it. VDRs are more efficient than physical copies that require an excursion to the location to access. Multiple users can log in to work on documents at the same time. This can reduce the time spent on due diligence as well as costs and boost efficiency. However, there are negatives of using a data room.

Virtual files are more susceptible to errors and failures. If a computer issue or network issue occurs, all data in the room could be lost. Although the majority of data rooms use enhanced security protocols to protect sensitive documents it’s not the same for all. Some data rooms do not make use of these protections, which could make important documents vulnerable to stealing and hacking.

To avoid these issues, businesses should choose the right virtual dataroom that has a proven track record and a user-friendly interface that is simple to use on any mobile device. Many of these solutions, such as iDeals, also offer streamlined document organization and automatic indexing to allow employees to locate folders and reports. Certain vendors, like Intralinks provide a range of advanced functions, such as the ability to grant permissions in granular increments and a comprehensive audit track to increase accountability.
