Brainloop, founded in 2000, is the leading provider of software solutions that enable the secure management of confidential documents across the extended enterprise.
Brainloop Secure Dataroom is a hosted service for managing confidential documents and for enabling document sharing and collaboration for authorised users, while best-in-class security technology prevents any access by unauthorised users. Examples of application areas are biotech licensing, contract negotiations, project executions, generation of quarterly reports and other communications that involve documents with sensitive and confidential information. Brainloop Secure Dataroom is used in hundreds of companies around the world.
New drugs and therapies that meet medical challenges and improve health outcomes have a far-reaching impact on the quality and longevity of human life. Biotechnology firms play a critical role in improving human health by successfully licensing their patented discoveries. The search for a prospective licensing partner is challenging, however: biotech companies need to share highly confidential documents in parallel with multiple prospective licensing partners – some who may be competitors – while ensuring that none of these proprietary documents are compromised during the process.
Secure online work spaces or virtual data rooms (VDRs) are web-enabled applications that operate outside of the corporate firewall, and enable document sharing with highly secure access and viewing controls without requiring proprietary server and client-side software. These online document vaults are offered as a web-based service, and so require no IT infrastructure; however, they can also be integrated with an ERM infrastructure to provide even greater functionality.
The most sophisticated of these secure work spaces offers the highest security standards, including two-factor authentication, encryption, and tamper-proof audit trails. Extremely important features to look for are operator shielding, in which software and operating processes ensure that the VDR operator is not able to read customer data, and end-to-end security, in which documents can be access-controlled even after delivery to users’ desktops. VDRs combine these security functions with communication and administration tools that allow the end user to efficiently set access rights, organise workflow, and ensure complete control over everything that happens in the data room, from beginning to end. Totally secure document sharing. Online. On demand.
A secure Brainloop VDR provides a central repository for confidential documents located outside the IT infrastructure. It gives business executives control over highly sensitive documents, regardless of where documents "live", in a way that facilitates business rather than hinders it. VDRs are device-agnostic, so any authorised individual can enter the data room anytime, with any web-enabled device, wherever they are.
