How to Set Up a Virtual Data Room

The first thing to look for in a virtual data room is whether it is able to be customized to your specific workflow. Many providers offer highly flexible interfaces that allow you integrate your company’s business processes and IT systems. They also have features such as watermarks and strong permission levels to prevent leakage of documents.

Another crucial aspect to consider is what kinds of documents you will be using the VDR for. If you are preparing to do an M&A then you will have lots of documents related to due diligence such as research results, patents, etc. These documents require high levels of protection and are particularly vulnerable to unauthorized downloads and copies. The most secure VDRs let you control access to the extent of each folder.

If you plan to make use of the VDR to share sensitive information with third organizations It is important to determine whether the vendor allows electronic signatures. This will save you time and money by removing the requirement for physical signatures.

It’s also worth examining the overall capacity of the virtual data room, and also the limitations on storage, file type and file size. You don’t want your files to be caught off guard with unexpected limitations on the size of the files that can be uploaded or downloaded.
