How to Evaluate Virtual Data Rooms

A virtual dataroom serves to store and share sensitive documents during due diligence. This could include confidential corporate documents, intellectual property, patents and other proprietary information. It is essential that a VDR secures this information from hackers and other third parties who could use it for personal gain or sell it to competitors. VDRs accomplish this by imposing strict permissions to prevent unauthorized access and tracking of user behavior. The data is also encrypted and not mixed with other enterprise content, which adds a further layer of security.

It is important to consider the pricing model of the VDR service provider before you are evaluating their services. Some VDRs charge one-time costs, while others offer an annual subscription that saves customers money over the course of. The majority of VDRs offer trials for free to allow potential customers to “kick the tires” to test the system in practice.


Mergers and acquisitions as well as capital raising, tendering and other strategic initiatives usually require the sharing of huge volumes of documents. Virtual data rooms help streamline this process to allow companies make better and more efficient decisions.

The file system used in a VDR must be user-friendly and easy to navigate. The organization of the directories into directories and optimizing their search capabilities are vital considerations. The system should also keep track of the user’s activities and provide reports on it. This allows administrators to understand the way users interact and respond quickly if required. Many modern VDRs have mobile applications that offer users an easy, convenient access to information.
