|Differences between the mobile and desktop service||The MATS platform has been designed to work equally well when used on both desktop and mobile devices. Application interfaces are fully responsive. Whilst applications must be designed and built using a desktop device, the vast majority of user interfaces components will work equally well on either. Some features are designed to take advantage of the large screen sizes of a desktop device while some features require access to native mobile functionality so are only available on mobile. MATS applications can be used via a web interface or a native app including offline capability.|
|What users can and can't do using the API||
The MATS platform has a Generic REST adaptor that allows you to configure a connection to any REST based resource. Should you find the configuration options don’t support a feature needed to utilise the resource in question then please inform us and we’ll attempt to add the feature to improve the generic adaptor.
In addition we have a number of adaptors created for specific solutions, they are listed here: https://www.matssoft.com/product/integration/
Finally API endpoints can be exposed using REST or SOAP. This allows you to configure endpoints and methods that third parties can consume to pull & push data or trigger events/actions.

|Configuration and change management approach||
Where there are minor or major releases to the platform, each application or instance contains a versioning audit trail and an ability to update to the latest versions. Release notes are included to allow impact analysis of updates.
Major revisions to the platform are pen tested by independent testers and evidence and results can be provided on request.
|Vulnerability management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Vulnerability management approach||
As part of the Business Continuity Plan (BCP), a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) is completed along with a Risk Analysis. This establishes the threats and provides a route to mitigate against those threats.
Once a notice has been received by our technical team of a patch release, which could arrive from multiple sources, it’s prioritised and the patch(es) made during a period of in-activity, out of hours.
|Protective monitoring type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Protective monitoring approach||Integrit monitors servers for file-system changes and alerts the MatsSoft systems team when files change unexpectedly. It is a reactive system.|
