Onapsis Inc. and PwC Establish Alliance to Provide Onapsis X1 Capabilities to PwC's Customers

Onapsis Inc. the leading provider of solutions to protect ERP systems from cyber-attacks, and PwC, global audit and assurance, tax, and consulting services firm, announced an alliance based on the only product certified by SAP AG for SAP application security assessments to PwC's global SAP customers. This joint business relationship expands Onapsis’ reach to the global SAP market, and allows PwC to provide certified and holistic security audits of SAP applications to their customers and end users.

Onapsis X1 is the industry’s first comprehensive solution for the automated application security assessment of SAP systems. Backed by the frequent updates from the Onapsis Research Labs, Onapsis X1 detects insecure SAP ABAP and Java configurations, missing SAP Security Notes and patches, dangerous user authorizations and insecure interfaces between SAP systems. Following Onapsis X1’s detailed mitigation procedures, customers can increase the security level of their platform, decrease business fraud risks and enforce current compliance requirements.

The companies announced their partnership during the session ‘Preventing Cyber Attacks: How to Address 11 Risks that Could Leave Your SAP System Vulnerable’ at the SAP Insider’s SAP-GRC conference last month, hosted by Onapsis’ CEO, Mariano Nunez.

“We are excited to enable PwC with the ability to enhance its outstanding SAP controls, security, compliance and GRC capabilities through our innovative SAP-certified solutions. This alliance is solid proof of the industry's demand for holistic SAP application security assessments and compliance audits; solidifying Onapsis' position as the leading vendor in the market,” mentioned Mr. Nunez.

Cynthia McConathy, Director - Risk Assurance, and Bob Clark, Partner - US ERP Security, Controls and GRC Solutions, led the initiative at PwC. "PwC and Onapsis are pleased to announce our joint business relationship. This tool brings a new level of efficiency to PwC's end to end security capabilities for SAP customers," commented Mr. Clark.
