TCS MasterCraft software adheres to Secure Software Development Lifecycle guidelines as prescribed in the TCS' Information Security Management System. A summary of key security practices followed in the SSDLC is listed below

    All software requirements are evaluated for the CIA triad of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability

    Threat Models are created for the software using the STRIDE approach

    All third party software components are continuously evaluated for open vulnerabilities.

    All code is continuously scanned through static application security testing (SAST).

    The software is regularly scanned through dynamic application security testing (DAST).

    Software is assessed for data privacy compliance requirements.

    All TCS Mastercraft Product associates regularly undergo Information Security trainings as applicable to their roles

Product Security

Security is incorporated in all the phases of the lifecycle. TCS Mastercraft uses the TCS SSA framework for the same. Security requirements are captured for all new applications. The software undergoes security design analysis which include threat modelling etc. Any change in software undergoes a change control procedure.

TCS MasterCraft software implements the following security principles under the CIA triad


    • Authentication - Access to software and its components are suitably authenticated
    • Authorization - Access to various software features are properly authorized using a RBAC (Role Based Access Control) framework and appropriate segregation of roles are implemented
    • Network Access Control - Access to software and its components are controlled using perimeter network controls


    • Data Security - Data is protected both at rest and in motion
    • Auditability - Appropriate audit of all key activities are maintained


    • High availability - High availability and failover is baked into the software architecture for all its constituent components
    • Backup and Recovery - Backup routines and recovery procedures are defined
    • Disaster Recovery - Disaster Recovery processes are documented

High availability is provided out of the box in SaaS model and for On Prem deployments software has capability to be deployed in high availability mode.

The MasterCraft SaaS architecture uses a multi-tenant data model to host all its data. Data for each tenant is held separately. All user data is protected from unauthorized access. The MasterCraft SaaS software is hosted in India using TCS's cloud services.
