How does DataParser work?

DataParser is connector software designed to collect data directly from its source to preserve chain of custody and maintain metadata for legally defensible compliance. The data is formatted and delivered to an email archive, eDiscovery platform, mailbox or file location.  Features include automatic processing, reporting, AD integration and Cloud or On-premise plans.


Do I need a server for this service?

No. We can manage everything for you with DataParser Cloud. Our dedicated DataParser Cloud Support team will monitor your service to ensure continuous processing and quick issue resolution.

Can I run DataParser on demand instead of a schedule?

Yes. With the on-premise version of DataParser you control how and when it is run. If you need to send data to your legal team for particular users or a specific date, simply create a configuration for your use case and pull the data.
