New SAP & Onapsis Threat Intelligence: Active Cyberattacks on Business-Critical SAP Applications

Protect Your Business-Critical Applications

An attack on your business-critical applications developed and supported by SAP or Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS), would have a devastating impact on your organization’s operations, finances and reputation. Despite this, most organizations are ill-equipped to secure these systems—they are generally out of scope for security teams and many incorrectly assume ERP vendor tools are sufficient. This lack of ERP cybersecurity protection and an increase in exploitable vulnerabilities make your business-critical applications a prime target for internal misuse and external attacks.  

Only Onapsis provides visibility and proven protection for the business-critical application layer—whether on-premises, hybrid or cloud—so you can identify and understand risk, prioritize remediation, respond immediately to new threats, meet compliance and reduce the overall attack surface.

ERP Systems Are a
Cybersecurity Blindspot

Traditional cybersecurity investments have focused on defending the perimeter with little attention paid to the application layer. Likewise, the tools that ERP vendors provide are not purpose-built for security and, most importantly, are generally not managed by or accessible to security teams. This leaves your most important data and applications unprotected.

  • The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued three US-CERT alerts since 2016 regarding the threat of cyberattacks on ERP systems 
  • 64% of organizations have been the victim of an ERP (SAP or Oracle EBS) system breach in the past two years
