Financial Network compliance and archiving.

Financial network compliance starts with the ability to capture content in a fashion that withstands regulatory scrutiny. Financial content should be complete including capture of metadata, should include a binary record, as well as complete chain-of-custody that highlight how information has been captured - and by whom. This should exist regardless of the content source, API availability, or whether the servers housing the financial content are located in the cloud. Simply screen scraping or using rudimentary tools for the capture of today's content variety and richness is - in many cases- not sufficient.

Financial network compliance also encompasses how this information is preserved and archived. Within financial services, most major regulators around the world demand that information be archived in a tamper-proof, WORM-compliant content store to prevent potential data loss or exposure to those with intent on doing harm. Financial network archiving must meet these immutability requirement, while at the same time, ensure that information is always accessible, subject to supervisory review requirements, and is easily extractable to meet the unpredictable demands of regulators.
