Onapsis Builds Global ERP Security Partner Ecosystem with Appointment of Darren Gaeta as VP of Worldwide Alliances
Boston, MA - February 20, 2019 - Onapsis, the global leader in ERP cybersecurity and compliance, today announced that it has appointed Darren Gaeta as VP of Worldwide Alliances. Gaeta is joining Onapsis from Anomali, where he built and scaled the company’s successful alliance program for security threat intelligence. At Onapsis, he will lead efforts to build upon and grow the global ERP security ecosystem with his four-pillar strategy of reaching strategic alliances, channels, MSSPs and technology partners.
Following on Onapsis’s recent acquisition of Virtual Forge to offer a “one-stop shop” ERP security platform, Gaeta will help open new business opportunities for partners in the fast-growing market to protect business-critical SAP and Oracle applications as they migrate to the cloud and drive digital transformations for the Global 2000.
“I am very excited to be joining Onapsis at a time of such tremendous company growth and momentum. The Onapsis product offerings can fill a void that many of our partners have in their product and services offerings and ensure that they are including ERP applications when they work with their customers. I am looking forward to further growing the strategic alliances program at Onapsis to achieve critical awareness and revenue goals,” said Darren Gaeta, VP of Worldwide Alliances and Channels, Onapsis Inc.
“Every partner we work with is currently helping their customers with complex digital transformation projects and cloud migrations. Onapsis is instrumental in these migrations as it empowers organizations to migrate securely and ensure compliance in each phase. Further developing our relationship with our strategic partners will help them provide further value to their customers by reducing cost and resource time in these complex migrations,” said Chris Smith, Chief Revenue Officer, Onapsis Inc.
“Verizon is a premier networking company who also happens to be a leader in the MSSP space. In order for our present and potential customers to leverage the power of Verizon's network including 5g - and security assets, we are constantly looking for technology partners that provide a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Onapsis is one of those companies. In order for my team to partner with anyone, it needs to consist of four basic elements.
1. Maps to Verizon's corporate strategy
2. Technology and the business problem it solves
3. Ability to execute
4. Personal relationships/trust
In my view, number 4 is most critical and we are fortunate that we have established personal relationships and trust with Darren, Chris and the team,” said James Carrigan, Vice President and Global Managing Director, Verizon.
Darren brings a wide range of knowledge and recognition in the security and risk industry, including previous channel roles at Securonix, HP Enterprise Security Products and Arcsight.
