The Intralinks virtual data room has been around for quite a while on the VDR market. Intralinks works mostly with Fortune 100 companies, focusing on large deals. While the Intralinks data room will be very useful for fixing some of the problems that come with such large scale deals and even assisting customers through the most difficult processes, their prices are much higher than other virtual data room providers. They offer several packages to make sure that each customer gets the features that they need, but if 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 options available.

The services Intralinks data room 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. Perhaps it is best useful for conducting data room due diligence since it goes to great length 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.

The customer service team will be there for you around the clock, but there is no online help center available so you will have to spend the time to call 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.

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 is not a good choice.

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 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.
