SAP and Onapsis Proactively Notify and Help Customers Protect Mission-Critical Applications from Active Cyber Threats

Published on

BOSTON – March 12, 2021 Onapsis, a leader in mission-critical application cybersecurity and compliance, today announced the general availability of support for SAP® SuccessFactors® solutions in The Onapsis Platform. The new support enables customers to quickly discover, assess, prioritize, and enhance security for SAP SuccessFactors solutions, helping to prevent misconfigurations and authorization issues to protect sensitive data and processes while helping to further secure the interconnected enterprise.

SAP is a leader in the cloud human capital management software market, with more than 400 enterprises going live with SAP SuccessFactors solutions in the first half of 2020 alone. As organizations modernize human resource initiatives, many organizations maintain sensitive employee and company information across a mix of on-premises and cloud applications, increasing the need to prioritize security and compliance to prevent fraud and data privacy risks.

"SaaS applications can introduce new risk into the business-critical application environment if security parameters are not continuously assessed to maintain a strong security posture," said Marty Ray, Chief Information Security Officer at Fossil Group. "To mitigate risk and help ensure security and compliance of critical HR business processes and data privacy, it is essential to keep tabs on authorizations, segregation of duties, system configuration and integrations with other interconnected business systems at all times."

The Onapsis Platform is purpose-built to help HR IT, IT operations, information security, and audit and compliance teams get a complete view of cyber risk across the entire application environment both on-premises and in the cloud. By using the solution’s powerful monitoring, automation, security, and reporting capabilities, enterprises can:

  • Discover: Identify all instances for SAP SuccessFactors solutions managed by the organization and understand the best practices for configuring authorization and access control, helping to further ensure proper segregation of duties and least privileged access.
  • Assess: Establish cybersecurity and compliance benchmarks to continually assess configurations policies for SAP SuccessFactors solutions, to improve configuration and authorization processes and understand the scope of interconnected systems.
  • Prioritize: Proactively identify and prioritize areas to strengthen security by assessing fraud, privacy and confidentiality impact across SaaS, cloud, hybrid, and on-premises mission-critical application environments.
  • Comply: Automate the testing and validation of IT general controls to significantly reduce the burden of proving compliance with standards such as GDPR, CCPA, and other data privacy regulations.

“In an interconnected application environment, it only takes one misconfigured system or security vulnerability to put your entire enterprise at risk,” said Anshuman Kanwar, GM of Products and Technology, Onapsis. “SAP SuccessFactors solutions offer built-in security, now further supported by The Onapsis Platform which helps teams get a complete understanding of risk within SaaS platforms while analyzing the impact across interconnected business processes.”

The Onapsis Platform release also follows the company’s $55 million growth funding round in October 2020, fueling its rapid expansion into the mission-critical SaaS application market. Onapsis will continue its momentum in the market with support coming in 2021 for Salesforce, Workday, Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle HCM Cloud, and other leading SaaS applications.

Onapsis has a long-standing relationship with SAP. To learn more about how The Onapsis Platform supports SAP SuccessFactors solutions, visit the Onapsis website: https://onapsis.com/.
