What is Intralinks data room 

The Intralinks virtual data room has been around for quite a while on the VDR market. The provider works mostly with Fortune 100 companies across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North America, and Latin America. 

In general, the software is an effective way to source, market, and manage deals in a wide variety of industries, including:

  • Legal
  • Life sciences
  • Energy
  • Technology

As for the use cases, the Intralinks secure collaboration platform has solutions for initial public offering, bankruptcy and restructuring, business development, board reporting, M&A, due diligence, and post-merger integration.

Intralinks data room overview

The Intralinks secure platform provides many of the things that you might expect from virtual data room software, but focuses exclusively on large enterprises, and provides some useful features that facilitate collaboration both inside and outside of your company. 

Intralinks as a collaboration platform also provides data room solutions for conducting data room due diligence since it goes to great lengths to make the communication between employees as easy as possible and it provides support at every stage of your project, and since there are many stages during the due diligence process, this is a very useful service offering.

While all of these features are great and all, it does come with a heavy price tag. In most cases, if you are not a Fortune 100 company, the price will simply be too high, but, more importantly, it does not make much sense to pay so much money. There are plenty of virtual data room providers that offer the same service at a high level that charge much less. If you are looking to use your data room for smaller projects or a data repository, paying so much money for this data room solution is not a good choice.

Intralinks security

This secure platform provides tools for file sharing across corporate and geographical boundaries without worrying about hacks. As a result, each data room user gets:

  • Information rights management
  • Watermarking
  • Granular permissions
  • Robust data encryption
  • Unshare capabilities

Above all, the Intralinks virtual data room is GDPR-compliant, which saves the customer from worrying about hacks, leaks, or data loss.

Intralinks customer support

The dedicated customer service managers will be there for you around the clock, but there is no online help center available so you will have to spend the time calling support every time you have a question. 

The good news is that you will be given a dedicated project manager and live training to help you out. Also, you will have the opportunity to test it out for 30 days to see if it is a good data room for due diligence or any other project that you are working on.

Intralinks data room pricing

While this data room solution allows companies to securely share and manage sensitive documents helping manage deals more quickly, its price is much higher compared to other virtual data room providers. 

They offer several packages to ensure that each customer gets the features they need, but you will have to think about whether or not the price is worth it. If your project is not ultra-complex, there are plenty of cheaper data room options available.

Product Reviews:

  1. Lyndi Beverley Deputy

    Director of Procurement

    We are a London-based company. That’s why we chose this provider. Intralinks London office is located near ours, which makes us feel more confident since we keep sensitive information in the data room. And in general, this provider fits our needs.

  2. Liliana Roni


    Our company is using this provider for quite a while, and we’re totally satisfied with the service so far. It is simple to invite users to the data room. All they need to do is to log in at intralinks.com and enter the login details we provide them with. That’s extremely convenient.

  3. Woodrow Ilene

    Audit Manager

    Intralinks is cloud-based which is perfect for us. All you need to do is to login at services.intralinks to get access to the data room. Therefore, our partners don’t have to install any apps. It streamlines and significantly speeds up deals.
