It’s important that the provider of data rooms you choose offers the security you require, whether you’re using it for due diligence or M&A. You’ll need to find out if the data room supports different types of files and if the collaboration tools are appropriate for your team.

If you’re a small business you should consider determining if the service provider can offer technical support at a reasonable rate. You should look for a site with customer testimonials and reviews. If the company has an email address or live chat, be sure to see the speed at which they respond to questions. If possible, you should choose a data room that is compatible with your current software and mobile devices.

Certain providers specialize in specific industries. For example, CapLinked focuses on M&A transactions which makes the process easy and secure. Pfizer and Baird are among their clients. Dealroom is another well-known vendor. It offers a variety of options that are useful for various types of transactions.

The most secure data centers prioritize security. Look for features like security scanning, encryption and firewalls. Some platforms provide multi-factor authentication, granular permissions for users and even access to user rights that are granular. If you’re working in the pharmaceutical industry, which is a sensitive area, make sure the platform is GDPR-compliant and offers specific to the industry.
