Latest research to be showcased in presentations, demonstrations and roundtables


As threats are becoming increasingly more advanced, business-critical application security is becoming top of mind for Global 2000 organizations

Onapsis, the global experts in business-critical application security, today announced that they will be attending the 2016 RSA Conference in San Francisco, California from February 29 – March 4, 2016. During this event they will be showcasing the latest research available in the business-critical application security market.

The business-critical application security market is continuing to expand as attacks against platforms such as SAP and Oracle are the best economics for cyberattackers. SAP applications manage the most sensitive information and processes of an organization including ERP, HCM, CRM, BI and Supply Chain Management. Despite housing an organization’s “crown jewels” - intellectual property, financial, credit card, customer data, supplier data and database warehouse information – SAP systems and their application layer are not protected by traditional security solutions.

“As threats are becoming increasingly more advanced, business-critical application security is becoming top of mind for Global 2000 organizations. Our research labs are constantly working to expand the industry’s understanding of vulnerabilities against business-critical applications by providing the most up to date threat intelligence available,” said Ezequiel Gutesman, Director of Research, Onapsis.

To better understand how organizations are truly managing cybersecurity risks in their SAP ecosystem, the Ponemon Institute’s latest study reveals senior level perceptions about SAP, its security challenges, and the risk of data breaches and cyberattacks. Uncovering the Risks of SAP Cyber Breaches surveyed over 600 IT security practitioners who are involved in the security of SAP applications used by their organization to manage business operations and customer relations. The full details of this research will be presented by Onapsis at their booth during the RSA Conference.

“During RSA conference we’ll be helping organizations understand steps they can begin taking now to secure their business-critical applications running on SAP or Oracle. Additionally, we will be demoing the most common cyberattack vectors that attackers are currently using to breach insecure SAP systems,” continued Gutesman.
