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.[10] In January 2014, Intralinks announced a new version[11] of its Intralinks VIA product, Intralinks VIA Enterprise, which supports complete content lifecycle management for the extended enterprise. It also has Intralinks Dealspace.[12]
