November 10, 2016

17a-4 is wrapping development of the next version of the DataParser.  The new version will include enhancements to logging, reporting, auto update features and proxy support.

11/8/16 – Millbrook, NY – 17a-4, a compliance software and services company, is wrapping up the next version of the DataParser for release in Q1 2017.  The DataParser is a leading on premise middleware solution to collect and format data for an archive.  Clients required to archive messaging and other communications use the DataParser to stay in compliance with SEC, FINRA and CFTC rules and regulations.  The new version of the DataParser will bring improvements to many features and expansion of existing proxy functions across all supported data source modules.

The DataParser’s modular architecture provides an efficient and cost effective platform to collect and control many sources of data for unified retention and supervision policies and procedures.  The DataParser supports Cisco Jabber, Bloomberg, Skype for Business Online, Skype for Business Server, SharePoint, Thomson Reuters Eikon Messenger, HipChat, FactSet and more.  The new features 17a-4 is adding to the DataParser will ease the user experience with improved load times for the interface and start times for service.  As well, enhancements to reporting and logging will be included such as the option to report run metadata and to remove logging of web service events.  In addition, auto update capabilities will be extended for future releases.

The design of the DataParser allows for it to integrate into existing infrastructures easily.  With Active Directory support and the ability to run multiple configurations, user groups can be filtered for collection and output.  Once configured, the DataParser runs automatically only collecting specified users’ new data that has accumulated since its last run.  The processed messages can be delivered to a mailbox, sent via SMTP to an email archive or placed in a file location for pickup.  It supports all major archiving technologies for in-house resources to be leveraged and compliance costs minimized.  If clients are using Office 365 as a compliance archive, the DataParser can deliver to the third-party data mailbox which allows for Microsoft’s new Security & Compliance features to be applied.

17a-4 is continually enhancing DataParser features and available options for all supported platforms.  Clients can request specific features be added to the roadmap.
