We have a field in our database that is a really long string of data. I just want to parse from the right what is between 2 parens on the end. The lengths are not always the same I just need that end info

Built inbound TCP connection xxxxxx for outside:xxxxxxx (xxxxxx/xxx) to inside:xxxxxxx/xxxx (xxxxxx/xxxx) (DATAINEED)
Built inbound TCP connection 12343 for outside:xxxxxxx xxxxxxx/xxxx (xxxxxx/xxyyy) (DATAINEED)

See the example below:
DECLARE @x VARCHAR(256) = 'xxxxxxx (xxxxxx/xxx) to inside:xxxxxxx/xxxx (xxxxxx/xxxx) (DATAINEED)';
SELECT REVERSE(STUFF(REVERSE(@x),CHARINDEX('(',REVERSE(@x))+1,LEN(@x),''))
