Automated Protection for Distributed Data
Properly retaining data contained in a firm’s books and records is the cornerstone of achieving rule 17a-4. The challenge now, particularly for small firms, is that these records are now spread out on servers at head office, branch locations, on laptops, mobile devices or the cloud. How does a firm out source to a provider who can automate the protection of all this data, so it is transferred to SEC compliant storage and make it centrally available to compliance officers and other key staff for review?
Remote Data Archiving:
AdvisorVault’s Remote Data Archiving service is designed specifically to automatically transfer all this dispersed data to SEC compliant storage.
Remote Data Archiving is key to achieving the demand of 17a-4 today, AdvisorVault has designed it with these key features included:
Automated Data Backup:
AdvisorVault’s Remote Data archiving solution is an automated process which backs up and remotely transfers data from corporate servers to electronic records stored in the cloud.
Supervision of Data:
Included with AdvisorVault’s Remote Data Archiving services is a secure, searchable web interface to access data which is indexed and retained in its original format of 7 years.
Also included in our Remote Data Archiving service is the ability to protect critical systems and data to ensure business continuity as part of FINRA disaster recovery requirement.
