When selecting a virtual data rooms review, it’s important to decide what functions you need the solution to perform. It may seem obvious, yet many vendors offer features that are beyond your needs. These can be expensive and hard to learn. Additionally, if you purchase too many advanced features, they will probably go unused and end up costing you money.
Many VDR providers provide a free trail that allows you try the platform out and decide if you like it. However, it is important to note that some of these trials are limited and some charge upon expiration. You may also find hidden fees or charges. Read the fine print carefully before choosing a vendor.
A good virtual room provider will have robust security features, such as two-factor authentication or 256-bit SSL encryption. It should also allow for granular user permissions and prevent screen capturing, printing, or other unwarranted actions that can compromise confidential information. Additionally, it should have a “fence-view” feature to limit unwanted glances and ensure that files can only be viewed from the device they are downloaded on. It should have a built in QA tool, a no-plugin version of IRM, a page-by-page history of document viewing, and ISO 27001 SOC 2 HIPAA certifications.
Another critical factor is how easily you can organize your documents and folders. A poorly constructed folder structure is more harmful than helpful. Be sure to invest time and effort in the naming of items and indexing them to maximize organizational efficiency and search abilities.
