How to Select a Data Room Service

A data room service is a virtual, secure environment that allows the sharing of data during due diligence, M&As financing, bankruptcy and other business transactions. In these situations, information shared may be sensitive or confidential. It is therefore crucial to protect this data. By using the data room, you’ll save time, money, and effort compared to emailing or printing documents. The selection of the best data room requires a bit of initial research to determine which features will be the most beneficial to you and your particular situation.

There are numerous providers of data room services, each offering distinct features. Some concentrate on security, while others on user experience and communication and others provide a mix of both. Some of the most well-known options are Firmex, VDRSimple, iDeals, Intralinks, and Merrill Datasite.

Most data rooms offer access permissions to users that can be granular. This helps ensure confidentiality and allow users to only access relevant content. Some also offer multiple factor authentication and time and IP access restrictions to avoid unauthorised downloads or usage. Some even provide internal team messaging, which can reduce the need to use other tools for communication such as email, and can reduce the number of redundant communications.

A few companies have added value with additional services that accelerate the due diligence process, for example document scanning and transcription as well as eDiscovery. Adding these services is typically an additional cost, but it is a worthwhile cost for smaller companies and complicated transactions.
