Securing Mission-Critical Applications in the Cloud


Protect business processes from the core to today’s new cloud edge

Connecting a Complex Mix of Application Environments

The mission-critical applications that run your business-supply chain management (SCM), human capital management (HCM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence (BI) and other systems-have shifted from running solely within a controlled, self-managed environment to a complex and interconnected mix of on-premises, infrastructure as a service (laaS), platform as a service (PaaS) environments and software as a service (SaaS) offerings.

At the same time, digital transformation, including cloud, DevOps, artificial intelligence, robotic process automation and other initiatives, introduces new software and capabilities in the most agile, fast and cost-effective way possible, with security often being an afterthought. As a result, constant change from continuous integration and continuous deployment can introduce errors, overly privileged user access and vulnerabilities that put the business at risk.
While cloud computing and interconnectivity bring operational benefits, such as agility, cost savings and efficiencies, they also create new challenges. IT, cybersecurity and risk professionals must overcome these challenges to protect the enterprise against internal and external threats, ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and optimize availability. Without a complete view across on-premises, laaS, PaaS and SaaS environments, it’s impossible to understand your company’s true application security risk or accurately identify and address the most severe gaps, vulnerabilities and threats.

Protecting Business Processes from the Core to Today’s New Cloud Edge

Onapsis is purpose-built to protect organizations from cyber threats, streamline regulatory compliance and improve availability and performance of mission-critical applications from SAP, Oracle, Salesforce and others across cloud, hybrid and on- premises deployments. You will get a complete view into your most important applications and how they connect to one another, no matter where the applications are running-without multiple tools and additional expertise. Onapsis simplifies interconnected systems and uncovers risk introduced by connecting applications to help you protect the intelligent enterprise, while ensuring compliance and enhancing performance and availability.

With The Onapsis Platform, you can:

  • Reduce the security and compliance risk of extended business processes

  • Enforce security and compliance baselines

  • Monitor application security, user activity and threats in production

  • Accelerate and ease cloud adoption

  • Trust, but verify, security of cloud applications

Uncovering Risks in Interconnected Applications

As business processes get extended into the cloud, it becomes increasingly difficult for IT, cybersecurity, development and audit and compliance teams to understand which applications and services support critical business processes, how they interconnect with each other and how changes impact compliance, security and performance over time.

Onapsis can help teams answer these and other questions about their extended business processes:

  • Are interconnected processes compliant with relevant regulations and standards?
  • Do connected SaaS applications follow best practices for configuration?
  • Are users assigned too many privileges, violating Segregation of Duties requirements?
  • Is there misuse of privilege?
