Recent Developments[edit]

Intralinks VIA™

Released in April 2013, Intralinks VIA™ enables users to share information outside of the network firewall. VIA encrypts every file shared within the platform and allows users to designate permissions. With the proper permission, users can download documents and collaborate freely together. VIA also includes an UNshare feature allowing admins to withdraw information at any time, with an encryption that corrupts the files (and any copies) sent or saved.



In 2013, Intralinks acquired PE-Nexus and MergerID. Each of these offered clients a platform to find partners for mergers and acquisitions. Intralinks merged the two firms and renamed the newly created platform DealNexus™, the largest global deal sourcing network.[11] DealNexus’ client portfolio offers businesses a network to find partners. Once engaging in a deal, the Intralinks VDR allows parties to conduct due diligence.


Intralinks maintains its corporate headquarters on the east side of Manhattan in New York City. Other offices include: Boston, San Francisco, São Paulo, London, Milan, Frankfurt, Hong Kong and Sydney.[12]
