CAPPS Benefits
Improved Cybersecurity

Enhanced Internal Controls

  • CAPPS security is comprehensive, delivering security mechanisms that control access across all levels and facets of CAPPS functionality. CAPPS access allows for transparency while giving users only the permissions required to perform their jobs.
  • CAPPS security is highly configurable and customizable. Most security control mechanisms can be implemented at any scale or level of detail to respond to specific security needs.

Value-added Cybersecurity

  • CAPPS applies industry-standard authentication solutions and secure network connections such as Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS).
  • CAPPS provides auditable and reportable security-specific data. Database triggers can be enabled to provide a detailed account of changes to key security configuration data. To support effective application security administration, security configurations can be queried and reported on using delivered or custom queries and reports.
