Data Room Confidential Mode

Data room confidential mode allows administrators of virtual data rooms to limit a user’s access to the VDR by determining their IP address or the type of device. It’s an invaluable tool for M&A deals as well as other shady business ventures.

A good provider will permit users to define granular permissions as well as use two-factor authentication. They should also provide remote shred, which deletes downloaded files after administrators have removed access. They will also be able to handle the most popular formats for files including PDFs as well as Excel XLSXs. The most reliable providers will be able to apply watermarks to the files users download to prevent people from sharing leaked copies of the files online. They can also set an expiration date on files that are downloaded to prevent downloads that are not authorized.

Other useful tools include redaction, which allows the administrator to block (black out) fragments of text or specific sections of a document that are not in the view of authorized users. This feature is crucial as it safeguards all personal information and critical business information from hackers. The most trusted VDR providers can edit PDF, doc Docx, TXT or ppt images, jpgs and gifs along with Q&A attachments.

Some providers allow users to print out documents which will automatically include a watermark and they will also allow users to download the original version of a file. A good service will provide a feature for questions and answers that allows users to discuss files in the dataroom and keep answers in an easily searchable database. This is a valuable tool for M&A transactions as well as any due diligence project.
