DataParser Software





The DataParser is the leading middleware solution to manage regulated data for e-discovery and compliance. SEC, FINRA, CFTC and other governing bodies impose strict guidelines on corporate data. In addition to email, regulations have expanded to include communication platforms, management systems and associated database content.

Developed in 2005 as a cost-effective, compliant solution to manage regulated content across multiple sources, the DataParser supports all major on premise and hosted archives on the market. Data feeds, instant messaging, database content, document management platforms and trading systems can all be captured and controlled using the DataParser. The DataParser handles the formatting of source data and manages it’s ingestion into an archive creating a single point of compliance management, discovery and supervisory procedures. It’s lightweight, streamlined structure enables an easy integration into existing infrastructures.

The goal of the DataParser is to allow clients to leverage new technologies while still complying with appropriate regulations. 17a-4’s architecture provides for a single-point in which all e-messaging content may be managed for legal and regulatory holds, retention policy, and e-Discovery productions.
