When it comes to business, a virtual data room is a great way to protect sensitive and important corporate documents. The most common use case for VDR is due diligence during M&A but a variety of industries benefit from the secure efficient storage of vital documents and information.

VCs and Private Equity firms look at multiple deals simultaneously making a lot of paperwork that must be organized. By storing all documents in a VDR they can simplify their process and make them readily accessible to investors or partners.

To protect sensitive information, consider the use of a service that gives granular document permissions to control who can print, view or download each file. It should also have dynamic watermarks to avoid accidental deletions and provide statistics on all activity of the user.

Construction and engineering companies typically collaborate with contractors to finish projects, requiring documents such as blueprints, invoices and change orders to be exchanged back and forth. The best VDRs ease this process by enabling secure collaboration between teams working on each project.

Life science companies have a lot of proprietary IP that they need to protect. A specially designed VDR like Venue allows them to work with investors, partners and analysts without compromising the security of sensitive data.

Check out VDRs that contain features such as annotations on documents, Q&A sections and the ability to assign tasks. These features are essential for facilitating discussions, and improving deal flow. You should also think about a provider that has industry-grade physical security measures like offsite backups of data as well as fire protection and network firewalls.
