Would a Wiki Site be ok for a Virtual Data Room

I have been asked to look into setting up a Virtual Data Room in-house.   After researching a little on a VDR, I am not 100% sure what the best route would be to go.  
I can get a Deluxe SSL with GoDaddy for our registered domain name and all sub-domain names.  We have our main website hosted with GoDaddy.  I would like to setup a Microsoft Windows Server in my server room, with IIS or Apache and mediawiki.  

Any thoughts on this?  With the SSL cert and placing the web server outside my office LAN, and perhaps using an extra Cisco PIX firewall in front of it, will this be acceptable?

Next would be to make the wiki functional with user security and easy on the eyes.

then you can set it up in your dmz and have user request access in which then you could create user accounts locallly o the box.

You could also just use the wiki site template with Windows SharePoint that comes with Windows 2003, and enable ssl, it will use your domain accounts for authentication.

This won't be something we want on the domain, our domain users would not be the ones needing accessing the server.   We have a PIX firewall for our network, but I would want this outside the PIX with one of our public IP addresses.  I figured on getting an additional firewall for this too.

Is Windows Sharepoint easy to manage and setup?  
And is it easy to run with a wiki site?

I am going to use simple machines forum for this.  If this fails, I will end up getting an outside service.
