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.

The publication can be downloaded from the Onapsis website by Clicking Here. 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 10th at 2:00pm EDT; click here to register for the webcast.
