When evaluating virtual data rooms to conduct M&A due diligence, look for one that offers an encrypted space for users to store their data and share the files with other participants. Also, make sure the software has granular permission settings such as multi-factor authentication, time and IP access restrictions to guard sensitive information. Not to mention, make sure that the service provider provides 24/7 support and training for all users.

A virtual data room is the best solution to simplify and streamline M&A due diligence. A VDR can provide a central storage space for all your important documents and materials which reduces the time spent looking for the right document or file. It also eliminates the need for physical storage, printing, and courier services, which could save you money in the long run.

VDRs are equipped with a range of features which make them an essential tool for M&A due diligence, including specific permission settings, search functionality (including OCR, filtering, and searching by folder and document name), redaction, fence view, and dynamic watermarking. A VDR should also offer a variety of security certificates, such as ISO 27001, SOC1/2/3, GDPR and HIPAA to ensure the highest level protection for sensitive data.

A final feature to look out for is drag-and drop file uploading and bulk upload capabilities, in addition to the capability to set up a clear access hierarchy with adjustable permissions. The best data rooms are easy to navigate making it easier for teams of all sizes to work together efficiently during the M&A due diligence process.
