Merrill Datasite

Following iDeals, Merrill is a major player in the virtual data room space. Their focus is on dealing with global financial institutions and big names in the business, as they call themselves “global leaders” in the secure file sharing industry having hundreds of thousands of their clients and users. With many well-known banks and Wall Street establishments using DataSite, this provider caters primarily for owners of large deals who are prepared to pay the top virtual data room pricing for the essential number of features including multi-layered security, easy data upload, granular user permissions, and 24/7 customer support. The major difference which can be ruled on the favor of DataSite is that their virtual data room platform is part of a data management and business consulting empire which can take care of entire business management processes for a client.
