A virtual data room (VDR) is a online platform used for secure storage and distribution of digital documents. This type of software is used by law and accounting firms, commercial real estate and any company that wants to ensure that due diligence is being followed. VDRs allow organizations to share confidential information with an additional party in a controlled, secure platform. The extensive security features often include encryption, two-factor authentication and single sign-on controls. The tools enable the hosting of confidential information under strict permissions and manage the user’s ability to distribute information by restricting the capability to forward, copy, or print the documents.
