Onapsis Helps SAP Customers Secure Solution Manager with new In-Depth Publication

Seventh installment in the SAP Security In-Depth (SSID) publication series now available

Cambridge, MA - August 21st, 2013 Onapsis Inc., the leading provider of solutions to assess and protect ERP systems from cyber-attacks,today announces the release of the latest SAP Security In-Depth publication featuring the SAP Solution Manager. With this novel information, SAP customers will have a further understanding of the complexities of SAP Solution Manager and how to better secure it within their organizations.

Juan Pablo Perez-Etchegoyen, CTO of Onapsis manages the Research and Engineering at Onapsis. “We are proud to be able to offer continued expertise to our customers and SAP users by releasing these publications. Securing large platforms is a challenging task and requires deep expertise in security and knowledge of the different SAP components. SAP Solution Manager is a critical application that, if it has not been properly secured, can be exploited by cyber-attackers to take full control of the entire SAP business-critical platform. Unfortunately, as it does not usually fall under the scope of regular audits, many systems are not configured securely. With ongoing feedback from our Research Labs and Professional Services team, we are able to share best-practices with fellow professionals faced with this problem,” 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 secure SAP beyond Segregation of Duties (SoD) Controls, and mitigate risks affecting the technical layer of their implementation. For the past seven years, we have been releasing presentations and publicly speaking about this topic at major security conferences. With these publications, we can help Information and SAP Security professionals understand this layer, and how to mitigate the potential risks it is faced with,” commented Mariano.
