Frequently Asked Questions

What is a traditional data room?

Data rooms are secure spaces for reviewing corporate documentation. In the past, these were physical locations, housing reams and reams of paper. M&A deal teams use them to safely share sensitive information.

What is a virtual data room (VDR)?

Virtual data rooms serve the same purpose as traditional ones. But rather than filling buildings with paper, everything is now securely housed online. M&A deal teams use them to power due diligence. But now they can provide so much more than simple storage space. Now they automate time-consuming processes. They allow global collaboration. And they give valuable insights that help close deals, faster.

What are the risks in using a consumer-grade file sharing system vs. a purpose-built virtual data room?

You might think that consumer-grade file sharing systems, such as Box, Dropbox™ and Google Drive™, could do the job. After all, they do market themselves as “low-cost solutions for the high-stakes challenges of M&A due diligence”. Sound good? Repeated high-profile security incidents say otherwise. And good luck getting hold of a file-sharer when you’re not paying for the service but trying to participate in the bidding. The challenges of complex M&A due diligence demand a more secure, purpose-built VDR application.

Why use a virtual data room, such as Datasite, designed exclusively for the M&A industry?
