Security – Documents are stored securely on our private server infrastructure. 256-bit encrypted SSL connections, powered by GeoTrust, a global leader in digital certificates, keeps data safe during transmission. Venture workspaces are private and founders have the ability to centrally manage documents and control which files are accessible to investors inside a workspace.
Simple user interface – Due diligence has never been simpler; parties can view files directly inside a workspace and communicate with founders. Sharing files inside an IBA workspace is easier than using a file transfer service or sending numerous email attachments. IBA’s user interface is intuitive and simple; you won’t need a training class or a manual to get started.
