DataParser Cloud

Hosted in a secure Azure environment that allows clients to leverage DataParser capabilities without having to manage processes or administration of the software.

DataParserAutomatic Processing

DataParser Cloud clients can rest assured their data is being processed automatically.  Each data source is configured to run on a specified schedule at the time best suited for each client’s operations.  Data is collected directly from its source, processed and sent into the client’s archive or other storage platform.  There are no manual steps; all processing is automatic to ensure continuous and consistent processing of data.  Any requested changes to configurations, such as adding new users, can be performed outside of processing times so schedules can be maintained.  DataParser Cloud is equipped with high availability servers and redundant backup to avoid processing delays.


DataParserDaily Reporting

DataParser Cloud offers the advantage of not having to monitor the process of data going into your archive.  Clients can rely on 17a-4’s DataParser Cloud Support team to manage and monitor the process from end-to-end.  However, should you want to know a detail or two about the process such as when it occurs or how much data was sent, email reports can be configured.  These reports can include a log of the entire process or quick summary of select data points.  17a-4 Support can configure notices to go to any number of users and distribution group emails are supported.  Coming Soon: DataParser Cloud Dashboard (2023) will provide clients with a login to track processes and access reports.


DataParser Ongoing Support

17a-4’s dedicated DataParser Cloud Support team will monitor, track, report and resolve all issues for DataParser Cloud clients.  There is no need for clients to worry about processing or falling out of compliance.  The dedicated DataParser Cloud Support team will be watching and ready to respond.  If at any time there is an issue, warning or error in processing, DataParser Cloud Support will immediately notify the client with the information and expectations including resolution timelines.  Should the team need your help in resolving the issue, they will request the necessary information via secure transfer.  If there is an issue outside of DataParser that requires a partner to resolve, either with the data source collection or the archive delivery, the DataParser Cloud Support team will notify clients experiencing the issue and work with the partner to help expedite a resolution.

DataParserData Security

DataParser Cloud is hosted in Azure leveraging multi-layered security provided by Microsoft across physical datacenters, infrastructure, and operations.  With Azure’s compliance and security protocols in place, DataParser Cloud clients can be assured their data is processed in a secure and compliant environment with high availability and backup.  Azure allows for regional processing so clients with restrictive IP and privacy policies can stay in compliance with GDPR and other requirements.  All data and configuration settings are encrypted.  All data is in transit – no client data is ever held in DataParser Cloud.  Clients access their data via the archive and DataParser processes have no impact on data source behaviors.

Supported Data Sources

DataParser is a modular software solution designed to meet Compliance, Legal, Security and IT requirements. Chats, Online Meetings, Documents, Data feeds, Collaboration Platforms and Databases are supported. DataParser handles the collection from the source, formatting of the data and delivery to an archive, eDiscovery platform or storage repository. 17a-4 partners with all data source providers to ensure continuous support of new features.  17a-4’s software team has streamlined the development of new interfaces.  Please get in contact if you are using a platform not listed below and would like us to add it to our DataParser roadmap.


With DataParser Cloud, clients can pull supported data sources into their archive or eDiscovery system with no on-premise resources required.
