What Is a Virtual Data Room?

As the name suggests, a virtual data room, or a “VDR,” is an online database in which companies can store and share confidential information, usually used during a financial transaction. VDRs are also used as ongoing document repositories, allowing businesses to organize critical business documents for easy and and secure access by authorized collaborators.

VDRs are used by companies to securely store and share critical and sensitive corporate data and are most commonly used during business negotiations and deals. The information stored in a data room is generally private documentation that is considered to be of high value to the company or owner of the data room. Of course, in addition to traditional record keeping that is required for many financial, legal, and tax matters, a lot of companies have other important documents and information they need to retain and would like to store safely to ensure that it remains confidential. For example, items relating to intellectual property, such as trade secrets and copyrighted works, must be convenient to access but also stored in a highly secure location.
