What Is A Virtual Data Room?

A Virtual Data Room (VDR) is secure online service to store and share – critical documents, allowing only those with a password-protected access code to see your data. Virtual Data Rooms are often used to manage strategic corporate transactions such as Mergers, Acquisitions (M&A), joint ventures, IPOs and fund raising and allow parties to securely and confidentially share information with the assurance that the documentation will not be lost, copied or leaked.

Using a leading VDR makes transactions faster and more efficient, allowing sharing information with multiple parties simultaneously.
