Document Security

This virtual data room and document storage is protected with military grade encryption and security. No matter who is accessing your content, from what device, or where, the layers of encryption and security will travel with the document — even if it is saved to a local machine, mobile device, or corporate network.

You can decide how you set your documents up — depending on how you have done so, the user will need some form of credential or authentication (of your choice) in order to view the content.
