Companies are often forced to share sensitive data with other employees or professionals, be it lawyers examining contracts or audits by accountants or compliance auditors checking on data leaks. In these cases the use of a virtual room (VDR) can help safeguard sensitive data and provide secure sharing. Many vendors offer free trials that allow you to test the best VDR providers. They have a wide range of features, pricing and security solutions.
When choosing a VDR, the most important aspect to consider is the security level. Choose a vendor that has various security certifications such as FedRAMP and FINRA. Check that the VDR can also recognize text in a variety of file formats, and also convert PDFs into searchable files.
Accessibility of the VDR across various operating systems is a further aspect to be considered. A modern platform should be able to support iOS and Android smartphones, Windows or macOS desktops as well as Linux servers. It should also provide options for hosting and storage locations.
When you are looking for a VDR provider, check its reviews from both internal and external sources. Choose a VDR company that has a proven track record and a significant number of positive reviews on third-party platforms, such as Trustpilot or Software Advice. Be sure to look over reviews from employees on sites such as Glassdoor. They will give you an idea of the company’s culture and ethics.
