17a-4 releases DataParser for InvestEdge

July 29, 2015

17a-4 is releasing the latest module of the DataParser software to support InvestEdge.  Clients can now use the DataParser to bring regulated data from InvestEdge’s client portal into compliance with governing SEC, FINRA and CFTC regulations. 

17a-4 has now released DataParser for InvestEdge.  The DataParser is used by hundreds of regulated institutions of all sizes to manage regulated data sources for compliance.  Now InvestEdge users can also bring their client communications into compliance with regulations imposed by the SEC and FINRA that require institutions to retain these communications.

InvestEdge is web-based software for managing, measuring, and reporting on high net worth and ultra-high net worth portfolios. InvestEdge’s award-winning client communication solutions serve a critical role in helping firms with meeting the most demanding reporting requirements.  The turnkey client portal, InvestEdge Connect, gives high net worth investors online access to view the same data their advisors use on a daily basis and allows for secure messaging communications.

The DataParser is a lightweight, middleware product that has a modular design to collect many different types of data streams, messaging platforms and database content.  In addition to InvestEdge, Bloomberg, Cisco Jabber, SharePoint, Reuters Eikon Messenger, Skype for Business and Skype for Business Online (formerly Lync and Lync Online) as well as many other regulated data sources can all be collected and controlled by the DataParser.  This allows for a unified compliance policy and procedure for all regulated data. The DataParser can pull from any number of servers and fully integrates with Active Directory (AD).  AD user groups can be specified for collection and output to multiple locations to conform to institutional compliance policies.

Designed to integrate easily into any existing infrastructure, the DataParser has various delivery options and can run multiple configurations for more complex environments.  Messages can go directly into a client’s Exchange environment, to a file location and/or into an on premise or hosted email archive.  Microsoft continues to expand policy and procedure features with the recent addition of a Compliance Center, controlled through admin portals in Exchange and Office 365.  As well, all the major email archives on the market have the necessary tools for discovery and supervision and are supported by the DataParser, allowing clients to leverage in house resources and keep compliance costs to a minimum.  Creating a normalized repository structure across data types offers optimal policy management and e-discovery procedures that can enable disposition rules and lessen storage concerns.
