Data Room Confidential Mode

By 12.10.2023No Comments

Data room confidential mode impedes non-authorized users from accessing your computer’s information. It allows a manager of an information area to limit the use of an electronic data space by a specific user according to their Internet Protocol address or system. This characteristic is especially necessary for M&A deals where sensitive information such as research results and copyrighted goods, can be shared.

It is easy to track user activities with complete audit trails. This includes: who viewed which files, the date and time they were downloaded, as well as the content that was deleted.

Secure document viewing is possible by using fence view and view only mode. These features protect your sensitive information by preventing users from print documents, save, download or screenshot documents. This feature ensures that, even when a user accidentally exposes sensitive files, the original document will not leave the VDR.

A reliable VDR provider will allow you to establish granular permissions for each file and folder within the data room. You can limit who is able to access the documents, define time limits and limit downloading of entire folders as well as specific people within the data room. You can also create a secure link to ensure that only the invited users can access the files within the data room.

The best data rooms come with various tools that let you control sharing of documents, protect data with 256-bit encryption when in transit and at rest and manage access rights using two-factor authentication. They also offer an extensive range of file formats as well as a search function that makes it easy to find any document in the data room.
