Onapsis Appoints Gerhard Eschelbeck, Former Google CISO, to Board of Directors
We are thrilled to announce the appointment of former Google Vice President of Security & Privacy Engineering (CISO) Gerhard Eschelbeck to the Onapsis board of directors!
Gerhard brings strong experience in transforming traditional security solutions and delivering them through the cloud, which will help Onapsis guide customers to the cloud with confidence.
As a proven information technology executive with strong operational and strategic experience, Gerhard launched innovative and successful companies and has built high-performance multi-national teams in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Gerhard is regarded as one of the foremost experts on network and system security, and was invited to present his research in information security to the U.S. Congress. He is a frequent speaker at major industry conferences, and is also a highly regarded author and is well-known for publishing the “Laws of Vulnerabilities.” Gerhard previously held CTO positions at Sophos, Webroot and Qualys. Check out the interview with Gerhard about his decision to join Onapsis’s Board of Directors:
“It is exciting to be joining the Onapsis team at a time of continued exceptional growth, as I believe they are solving one of the most critical cybersecurity challenges global enterprises face today and in the future,” Gerhard said of Onapsis. “Migrations of ERP and business-critical applications to the cloud, together with the increased evidence of ERP-specific attacks and the release of exploits such as 10KBLAZE, have made organizations more aware of the need to protect them quickly. Onapsis delivers truly unique technology to protect the world’s largest organizations and I’m looking forward to helping drive the Onapsis mission forward.”
Onapsis is focused on enabling organizations to continuously monitor ERP and other business-critical applications for cybersecurity vulnerabilities and compliance gaps across cloud and on-premise deployments. “With his proven track record and deep passion for creating and championing new technologies, we’re honored that Gerhard has chosen to join our board of directors,” said Mariano Nunez, Onapsis CEO.
