A virtual dataroom, also known as VDR, provides a secure way to share and protect confidential documents. While investment bankers are among the heaviest users of this technology, the benefits are available to companies of all kinds. Here are a few of VDR’s most common uses:
M&A due diligence
A merger or acquisition of an other company involves sharing a lot of documents, typically with third-party entities such as auditors and regulatory agencies. Having access to an organized, secure repository for all this data makes the M&A process significantly faster and less complicated.
Legal processes require large volumes which are extremely sensitive or confidential. These types of documents are easily lost or stolen, therefore having a VDR is very important for legal teams. VDRs give lawyers and regulators to review documents remotely without compromising security.
Offline sharing and signing important documents can be a lengthy process. This process is able to be speeded and made easier with the eSignature service offered by the majority of VDR providers.
