BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Onapsis today announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.
As a member of the Cloud Security Alliance, Onapsis will contribute to the CSA’s initiatives by educating end-users on the importance of securing SAP business applications. These applications store an organization’s most important assets including customer data, product pricing, financial statements, employee information, supply chains, business intelligence, budgeting, planning and forecasting.
“While migrating to a cloud environment, security must still remain a top priority for organizations. Onapsis solutions offer a unique approach for securing SAP business applications while migrating to such environments as they provide complete visibility into systems throughout the migration process. We look forward to the company’s contributions to our initiatives and research as we continue with CSA’s mission to promote secure computing environments,” said Jim Reavis, CEO, CSA.
The Onapsis Security Platform (OSP) integrates seamlessly into organization’s private, public or hybrid cloud environments to deliver a near real-time preventative, detective and corrective approach for securing SAP systems and applications in these environments. Using Onapsis, SAP customers can ensure that each step of their migration to a cloud environment is done with security in mind and that proper security patches, configurations and compliance mandates have been applied. After migration to the cloud is completed, OSP continues to monitor these critical applications in their new environment.
“With organizations planning to move their mission-critical SAP systems to cloud environments, it is necessary for an industry standard to be established in order to ensure that processes and data held within these systems remains secure from the new and advanced threats targeting them. Onapsis is looking forward to collaborating with the Cloud Security Alliance in a working group, as well as our customers and partners to help develop both baseline policies and best practices for how organizations can safely migrate their enterprise systems to the cloud and ensure their service provider is running the systems according the agreed SLAs,” said Juan-Perez Etchegoyen, CTO, Onapsis.
On Thursday, October 6, 2016, Onapsis will be hosting a webcast to further discuss cloud capabilities. For more information, or to register, please visit: https://www.onapsis.com/news-and-events/webcasts/securing-sap-cloud
