The virtual data room is a magic wand for businesses of any size and startups. With just one program, you protect your business from information leaks as much as possible. Read more about how VDRs help secure company data.
VDR – protection against the risks of data loss in any industry
In many financial institutions, some vulnerabilities are common in origin; often, attackers repeat an identical sequence of attacks to exploit them and achieve the desired result. VDR replaces a whole group of programs for:
- Vulnerability control and risk mitigation. The virtual data room allows you to assess the security of applications and the software used and identify security vulnerabilities to prevent attacks.
- Providing multi-factor authentication. Using MFA will make it much more difficult for attackers to compromise both privileged and client credentials.
- Use of firewalls aimed at protecting web applications and services. A finely tuned and regularly updated web application firewall can detect and block attempts to exploit vulnerabilities and introduce malicious software.
- Implementation of data leakage protection systems. VDRs can detect and block the leakage of sensitive data, which significantly reduces the risk and probability of successfully implementing data compromise within the network infrastructure.
Over the past few years, the frequency of attacks on various kinds of enterprises has increased significantly – experts attribute this to the fact that many companies have moved online. At the same time, small businesses and startups often neglect data security issues.
How are virtual data rooms evolving?
VDR is a technology that does not stand still. Data rooms are developing in the following directions:
Raising awareness in the field of information security through user training, periodic testing, internal regulations, and instructions for employees of organizations.
- The use of vulnerability control and risk management tools on a periodic and preventive basis to respond to attempts to exploit them quickly and timely update the software used.
- Modernization and application of automated means of responding to the identified signs of an initiated DDoS attack to enable timely prevention and stability of technical means to process large data streams.
- Modernize and revise current security systems to reflect the Zero Trust model to increase visibility, understand the access granted, and minimize the possibility of intrusion and influence by an attacker on controlled business processes.
Virtual data rooms can protect your business information from threats such as ransomware, DDoS attacks, attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in web resources, banking applications, and compromise of sensitive data.
Even if you think your company is tiny and its data cannot be of interest to anyone, you are wrong. Hackers, gaining access to information about your customers, reduce the level of trust in you from customers. So you lose your buyer, customer, and he goes to the provider of services or goods that cares more about the security of information.
Plus, you can choose a virtual data room that won’t hurt your finances – solutions are now available for under $100/month. This is not much money, but the trust of your customers can be worth much more.
