VDR Meaning and Examples

Virtual Data Room


What is a VDR?

A VDR (Virtual Data Room) is an online, secure repository for documents and data pertaining to legal transactions or proceedings, and business. A VDR utilizes an extranet connection (an internal connection that has controlled access) and a central server. This type of internet connection uses a secure log-in overseen by an appropriate authority or vendor. They are then responsible for enabling or disabling the secure log-in at any time. VDR can also be referred to as a Virtual Deal Room.

Intralinks is a premium online data room when compared to competitors, especially when at first it seems as though they do not offer as many functions as the others. However, when large-scale deals are the norm, the support that Intralinks offers could be exactly what is needed.

There are three models available for dealmakers with Intralinks. These models can then be built upon with modules to customize it to the specific deal. Even with this customization, some users have complained that the customization isn't deep enough for their needs.
