After a wave of high profile security breaches that hit the United States, V-Rooms™ has launched a new program for law firms and attorneys, aimed at increasing document security for their legal clients. Law firms and attorneys will be able to utilize a free privately branded client extranet or client portal on the V-Rooms™ system which includes a free data room for sharing partner reports, financial audits and other internal firm information.
A client extranet, or sometimes referred to as a client portal, is a cloud based network that allows controlled document sharing outside an organization’s firewall. This external network may be viewed as a secure extension of an internal computer network to outside parties, such as clients, experts, accountants and other attorneys. With V-Room’s™ virtual data room based extranets, lawyers can set up workspaces or “rooms” for different matters and have exclusive control of all content and access rights without needing to rely upon support from busy IT departments.
“With an outward facing client portal, attorneys can convert their static website into an interactive tool for capturing new clients and serving existing clients more securely and effectively,” said Dan Bradbary, CEO of V-Rooms™. “As a free bonus, law firms may also use the extranet to exchange documents securely with geographically dispersed staff and partners.”
Lawyers will be able to organize and store the thousands of documents generated during legal proceedings and transactions in their own secure, cloud-based legal extranet. In addition, lawyers can grant clients the ability to rapidly upload documents and files for review and can set up email alerts to automatically notify parties of changed or new information which will simplify communications.
The client extranet also has a complete audit trail of all actions, for administrative or forensic purposes, and the ability to further secure documents by watermarking each page with the time, date and identity of the person accessing that information.
V-Rooms™ provides a cloud-based, customizable virtual data room (VDR) solution that is designed to streamline document management, collaboration, exchange and archiving for financial, legal and corporate professionals. The V-Rooms™ Software-As-A-Service (SAAS) secure document portal facilitates the secure exchange of sensitive information providing compliant and auditable transactions. V-Rooms™ enables the acceleration of complex, information-intensive processes while reducing the time and expenses associated with data distribution, courier, printing and travel.
