The Benefits of Using a Data Room for InfoSec Due Diligence

Traditionally companies have relied on email to share InfoSec documents with potential buyers but this approach puts the information at risk by exposing it to compromised email inboxes as well as phishing attacks. Data rooms provide a safer alternative to share quickly and securely documents for due diligence, while maintaining control over their data.

A virtual data room is a safe cloud-based solution that lets you store and share private documents with the highest levels of security. A VDR is a better security option than a personal file sharing tool or storage tool. It offers advanced encryption and auditing capabilities, as well as dynamic data watermarking and more.

In addition, a number of features are designed to help make the due diligence process more efficient and effective for all parties involved. For example the Q&A module can aid in creating an organized and structured environment to facilitate due diligence questions and answers. You can save time by making favorites, and by navigating to frequently used documents and folders.

Another important feature is a secure messaging tool that allows users to communicate with one another in the data room, which saves them from having to bounce between various applications, and enhancing privacy protection. Two-factor authentication that requires additional information or codes for logging into the VDR can also help in keeping information secure. You can also check the IP address or device, as well as the location of the user logging in, reducing the chance of leaks or misuses.
