CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwired - April 01, 2014) - Onapsis Inc., the leading provider of solutions to audit and mitigate threats targeting ERP platforms, today announces the release of the ninth installment in the SAP Security In-Depth (SSID) publication series featuring SAP BusinessObjects. Because of the amount of moving parts, complicated processes and client access points, securely implementing or auditing a BusinessObjects implementation can be a trying task. With the relevant and actionable information provided in this SSID, SAP customers will gain a deeper understanding of strategies to proactively test and learn how to defend against attacks targeting their SAP BusinessObjects deployments.
Juan Pablo Perez-Etchegoyen, CTO of Onapsis, manages the Onapsis Research and Engineering teams. "At Onapsis, it is important to us that not only our customers, but ERP users worldwide can benefit from our continued research and development regarding SAP security. Offering our continued expertise allows SAP users to take the right steps towards securing their SAP implementations with confidence they are following best practices to ensure that that the business critical process and information stored in their SAP systems are secure. BusinessObjects is a critical system within the SAP ecosystem, and it is important that organizations understand the threats targeting them, and learn the mitigation steps to prevent attacks," stated Juan Pablo.
Mariano Nunez, CEO of Onapsis, leads the company's strategy and product direction. "At Onapsis, our goal is to empower SAP customers to understand that they need to holistically secure their SAP implementations, which means moving beyond Segregation of Duties (SoD) Controls and actively identifying and mitigating the risks affecting the technical layer of their implementation. For the past eight years, we have been releasing presentations and publicly speaking about this topic at major security conferences. With these publications, we are helping Information Security, Audit and SAP Security professionals understand this layer, and how to mitigate the risks they are faced with," commented Mariano.

In addition to this, Onapsis is pleased to also announce that our Sr SAP Security Researcher, Will Vandevanter, will be presenting a one hour educational webcast reviewing the details of the publication and providing practical examples of the risks described in the paper and ways to mitigate them. The Webcast will take place on April 10

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
