Security Data Rooms

Security Data Rooms (SDRs) are cloud-based solutions that allow for the safe storage and sharing confidential data. They are used in M&A due diligence, real estate asset lifecycle management as well as any other business where there is an need for specialized secure file sharing.

It’s not surprising that companies are concerned with the security of their private business data, particularly due to recent high-profile data breaches. While encryption of data-at-rest in a virtual data room is essential to stop hackers from accessing your documents, it’s only one piece of the puzzle. To ensure your data is secure it is essential to take a holistic approach to security of your data room that includes training, policies, and technical capabilities.

VDRs are also useful for making sure that you are in compliance with industry regulations like the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. PCI-DSS requires secure storage, robust access control measures including encrypted transmissions and regular security testing. This capability lets your customers, partners and other stakeholders that you take security of data seriously.

Some VDR systems also allow access to the in-app content by limiting IP addresses that are eligible for VDR access. This can help to prevent unauthorised users from using screen grabber tools to take document content and then share it with non-authorized users. VDRs that have advanced access controls allow administrators to identify the identity of a user with the viewed images and printed files.
