Tens of millions use Nextcloud to protect their data, at home or in their business. That is why Nextcloud takes security so serious, developing many unique security-related features and offering a USD 10.000 security bug bounty to security researchers. In some situations data has to be protected from leaking, even by the people who gain access to it. For this scenario, Nextcloud introduces its virtual data room (VDR) solution.
Say you want to give a third party the chance to review and perhaps even edit a number of documents but prevent data leakage as much as possible. This is useful if you're working on due dilligence for an investment, need to decide on a loan or other sensitive business transactions.
A Nextcloud virtual data room enables you to:
These capabilities and more are part of our virtual data room solution designed for use by organizations when they need a space where an often cross-organizational team can collaborate, firewalled off from either or both of their organizations.
It enables secure due diligence during a take-over or venture capital transactions. Multiple virtual data rooms can be set up in paralel, or sequentially, enabling financial institutions to ensure data does not cross between offices, countries or teams.
Where other virtual data room solutions still require data to be stored at a third party and route authentication and real-time communication through their data centers, a self-hosted Nextcloud virtual data room offers 100% control and thus near perfect protection from data leaks.
Forget about SAAS and outsourcing: an on-premises Nextcloud VDR offers the ease of use that speeds up deal making while strict control over access and fine grained auditing ensure sensitive data remains secure.
Nextcloud develops the industry-leading on-premises content collaboration solution, bringing together efficient real-time communication, document editing and easy sharing together in a coherent platform.
Nextcloud is used in extremely security-sensitive environments every day in the financial, healthcare and government sectors. Nextcloud VDR provides an even more hardened, secure, complete and easy to control environment for efficient collaboration on the most sensitive data.

This example sends the link and password to the recipient by email. The user can take out the password and send it through another channel. Alternatively, when a guest account is set up for the recipient, the Outlook add-in will detect this and instead share the message to the guest account and include an internal link in the email. The recipient will have to log into their guest account to access the email.
