Keeping Your Virtual Data Room Secure

Documents and information used during a financial transaction, business process, or other type of deal must be readily accessible, while also protecting from deliberate or accidental misuse. The best way to do this is to use a secure virtual data room with multiple features that defend against unauthorized access by third parties.

When selecting the VDR for your business Make sure you take a look at the permissions for documents. You can control the way users access and view files in the virtual room and whether they are able to print or download them. You should be able to regulate the IP address of the user as well as the type of device they use and even where they are.

Make sure that your VDR of choice is equipped with strong encryption and detection systems to protect your personal information from cyber threats. These should include firewalls, antimalware and intrusion prevention to keep your data secure all the time.

Some VDR solutions claim their system is secure due to the fact that they encrypt the data in transit. However, this doesn’t safeguard your data as much as you may think. It’s similar to a cereal bar maker boasting that it has 0 percent fat, but it’s still full of sugar. A VDR should not just provide encryption but also digital watermarking and data siloing to private cloud servers. It should also offer multi-factor authentication as well as redemption for accidents as well as physical security measures like continuous backups and uptime of over 99.9 percent. This comprehensive approach creates an barrier that is impenetrable to security breaches. This will give you peace of mind knowing your personal information is protected and secure at all times.
