how we choose virtual data rooms

Hopefully, if you’re reading this, you’ve had a chance to explore our new interactive chart detailing all features in leading virtual data rooms. Data Rooms Reviews Media publishes unbiased ratings and reviews for nearly everything related to secure file and data sharing. We never receive payments or other rewards for our reviews. Our independent ratings are conducted by expert reviewers and aren’t influenced by the brand owners or by our founders.

Because our choices when it comes to data security profoundly affect our businesses, Common Sense Media based on both security features, functionality, communication tools, ease of use, customer service, and, for those specializing in data storage, storage capacity on each payment plan tier. We rely on the common criteria from business practices to determine what kind of service level is appropriate for which type of offering. And research on how businesses make use of technology shapes up our IT-related ratings.

Our goal is to give you trustworthy information so that you can decide what works for your business needs. We know every business case and every particular deal is different — but all businesses need the information to make great data room choices.

Why reviews are still important?

When it comes to data security, all businesses need to consider or eliminate a solution that works for their needs. That’s why our ranking algorithm also looks at a number of technological and “soft” features but also at the quality of reviews and their consistency over the years.

Every survey result we receive goes into our analytics system which calculates how, what, where and when each survey was filled out. We use the latest technology and data science methods to ensure that our visitors find reviews helpful in determining the quality of their data room experience.

Should I believe consumer reviews?

Make sure you read both positive and negative comments while keeping an eye out for features that are most relevant to you such as security, levels of data access security, communication tools quality and pricing schedule. We recommend searching for a provider with a large number of reviews, which help provide more accurate scoring and also shows how reliable the provider is. Remember that one bad review is not enough for providing a balanced overview.
