Utilizing Costpoint to 
Assure Data Security
Data integrity and security is essential
to providing the appropriate management information necessary to meet contractual commitments and internal best practices. 

For clients that utilize Costpoint as their nucleus set of applications, inherent to the application is the ability to generate the Security Audit Report. Identifying user application access permissions is often addressed at setup or during the hiring of a new employee however seldom visited as a part of overall best practices. 

Most audit firms periodically request a review of a client's security and data integrity procedures and policies. This is even more prevalent where clients are contractually committed to implementing and demonstrating their compliance.

Several areas to look at include:
  • Have we established group environments and allocated permissions based upon groups?
  • Have we reviewed our password and access permissions at an individual level?
  • Do we have a formal process to address both terminated and new employees?
  • Is there an appropriate internal check and balance to review access permissions?
  • Are our internal processes compliant with contractual commitments?
Deltek Releases T&E 10
Sands Solutions has been an active participant and contributor to the development and testing of Costpoint T&E 10. Deltek recently announced the release of the product and its general availability and unlike previous releases of Costpoint that incorporate fixes and upgrades, this release represents a major shift in design. 

With this release, T&E is now integrated into Costpoint rather than being offered as an add on application. The impact on existing customers is an area that Sand Solutions has been discussing with its' clients and recognizes each client has separate expectations. 

Our technical support team has downloaded and created the necessary installation media and will be continuing to address and review each client situation. 

Highlights of the announcement, which may or may not impact each client environment include:  
  • T&E is integrated into Costpoint rather than a separate application
  • All applicable users can now use 1 single web login to access both applications (Costpoint and T&E)
  • For those using the mobile app, T&E is no longer a separate app
  • T&E has the look and feel of Costpoint
For further information or to discuss the impact the new release may have on your business, please reach out to Sands Solutions
