A virtual data room (VDR), also known as deal room is an online database or cloud storage used by organizations to store and transfer data virtually. The use of virtual data room services are increasing globally due to the rising demand and adoption of remote accessibility for data. The virtual data room or virtual deal rooms works on a concept where data is stored on a virtual database. Only authorized users are allowed to access the virtual data room information, which is stored electronically on the server. Most organizations store data on virtual data rooms across different domains such as marketing and sales, legal, finance, and workforce management. Mainly finance departments generate and transfer large volume of data due to which companies prefer virtual data rooms for storing the data. The telecom and IT sector is also expected to creating huge volume of data, due to the rise in demand and adoption of mobile phones, laptops, and wearable devices.
The virtual data room has replaced traditional physical data room services; further they help in reducing the cost and increasing efficiency and security. The virtual data room enables authorized organizations to view information related to their business operations in a controlled environment, helping organizations to supervise physical data rooms in a secure premises with controlled access. In traditional physical data rooms, only one person can access the data room; however, virtual data rooms overcome the drawbacks of physical data rooms and provide other features such as controlling, viewing, copying, and printing. The major growth driver for the virtual data rooms (VDR) market is increase in the number of organizations, and volume of increase in data and cloud services. Furthermore, the growing demand for risk management, need for intellectual property, and adoption of cloud based technologies by large, medium, and small enterprises are also growth drivers. In a growing competitive market, organizations are under pressure to serve their existing customers better; therefore, the virtual data rooms market is projected to help organizations to store huge amount of data, maintaining variability of data. In addition, it allows access to data with higher velocity, and helps organizations to strengthen and serve their customers in a better manner. However, with the increasing use of virtual data rooms, data breach is the major restraining factor for the growth of the virtual deal rooms market. In addition, cyber security, and increasing volume of data due to mergers and acquisitions and data integration are also need to be enhanced for the adoption of virtual data room solutions world-wide which is expected to limit the adoption of virtual data rooms over the short-term period.
