17a-4’s DataParser is a lightweight middleware solution with a modular design to collect different types of regulated data for compliance with SEC and FINRA rules. Data feeds, instant messaging, database content, document management platforms, trading systems and more can all be ingested into Office 365, Exchange or an email archive.
Many institutions are required to capture and retain e-messaging content in addition to email. 17a-4 developed the DataParser in 2005 as an on premise cost effective solution to manage regulated content. The software collects, formats and delivers data to repositories for archival retention and e-discovery.
Designed to integrate easily into any existing infrastructure, the DataParser has various delivery options that can run in multiple configurations for more complex environments. Messages can go directly into an Exchange environment, to a file location or into an on premise or hosted email archive. It interfaces with virtually all major archiving technologies, both in-house and out-sourced.
The DataParser creates streamlined compliance management, discovery and supervisory procedures allowing clients to leverage in house resources and keep costs to a minimum.
The DataParser runs as a Service in the Microsoft Windows environment and can run unattended.
