Modern organizations need constant consumption of information to stay afloat and develop. Businesses need to share and use many different types of documents, and to do this, they need a platform that can provide them with the security and convenience of allowing employees to access files from their personal devices. To do this, it is important that the files are well synchronized with those devices. In such cases, a virtual data room would be an ideal space for these activities.
Secure solution for syncing and sharing files in the cloud
A virtual data room is a more secure alternative to familiar platforms like email, Dropbox, and other file-sharing programs. It provides you with a separate space that has everything you’ve been looking for: security, ease of use, flexibility. All of these factors are incredibly important in the enterprise to successfully manage file access and protect it properly.
VDR reduces an organization’s reliance on FTP servers because they are definitely not suitable for corporate use, they are easy to hack and get all the information the hackers need. Web-based room space gives users still the same unhindered file sharing, but at the same time regulates their access control well. It allows you to work with files from any device and location, allows you to work in real-time as a team, and is easy to get used to.
Other important features of VDR
Below, we’ll talk about other Data Room features that will help you with your activities.
- Central Management
The space has an administrator who monitors, controls file access, and grants login permissions
- Full control over the content
The ability to control the VDR allows your company to collaborate safely with a third party without any risk. You decide what information is available to which user and for how long. Document management itself is severely restricted to ensure data security and disables users’ ability to save, copy, print, and forward documents.
- Synchronization of multiple folders
Because of this feature, files on the platform are easily synced with your device and data room folder, thus both giving access to files and maintaining version control. A good VDR vendor will make sure that the platform supports multiple folder synchronization, and at the same time that any folder can be selectively synchronized with VDR.
- Collaborative work of the project team
The file-sharing feature opens up the possibility for users to participate in separate rooms on a project and share documents. In this case, you will have the following functions available to you:
- Setting restricted or temporary access to certain files
- Directional synchronization of folders on their devices with each other
- Ordinary synchronization for file transfer
- Transitory sharing using time-limited URL invitations
- Setting roles that users can use to create public folders
- Minimal risk
VDR provides you complete security during file transfer and storage because securing your data room is one of the most important principles. Good VDRs have built-in dual authentication, advanced encryption methods, and remote data cleansing. It also uses digital rights management and document manipulation restrictions, in addition, VDR allows you to track the activity of all users in the space and see what files they use.
The best providers also include secure browser-based document viewing in their plans. The administrator has full control of the situation, he can both give and take away access from the user, restrict access to a certain document, etc.
