The e-Bulk solution is hosted within an ISO27001, Capita owned data centre and all components of the solution are protected by intrusion detection and intrusion prevention devices. All upgrades and enhancements to the solution are vulnerability tested prior to live implementation. All operating system components are hardened to ensure all unnecessary ports are deactivated to reduce any potential risk regarding these services.

e-Bulk was developed to rigorous standards, involving:

  • A quality assurance process including a static code review
  • Application security analysis and testing (also called "verification") according to the verification requirements of OWASP Application Security Verification Standard
  • Automated testing cycles (unit, integration and system) throughout the application development life-cycle
  • Evaluation against the Open Web Application Security Project (http://www.owasp.org) Top 10 vulnerabilities

Additional Accreditations

In addition to the ISO quality accreditations of our data centres, Capita’s e-Bulk solution has been accredited by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform (OCJR) and Capita was the first broker of online Disclosure checks. This accreditation allows Capita to host online checking solutions on behalf of other Registered Bodies.
