Security Data Rooms

Security Data Rooms are cloud services specifically built for the secure storing and sharing of confidential business data. They are utilized in M&A, due diligence, real estate asset lifecycle management and any business where there is a need for specialized secure file sharing.

With all the high-profile data breaches being reported It’s not a surprise that businesses are worried about whether their shared sensitive business information is secure to protect them from cyberattacks. While the encryption of data in the data room is essential to block hackers from accessing your documents, it’s just one piece of the puzzle. To ensure that your data is secure, you need to take a holistic approach to security of your data room that includes training, policies, and technical capabilities.

The use of a VDR also helps to comply with industry regulations such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). PCI-DSS demands secure storage, strong control over access encrypted transmissions, as well as regular security tests. This capability lets your customers, partners and other stakeholders that you are taking security of data seriously.

Some VDR systems also allow to restrict user access to content in-app by restricting the IP addresses that can be granted VDR access. This can prevent unauthorized users using screen grabbers to record document contents and then share them with non-authorized third parties. VDRs with advanced access control allow admins to associate an individual’s identity with the viewed images and printed documents.
