Boston, MA – DEC. 16, 2015 – Onapsis™, the global experts in SAP and Oracle business-critical application security, today announced that it has been recognized as an Excellence Award finalist in the Rookie Security Company of the Year category for the 2016 SC Awards. Finalists are recognized for outstanding leadership and for providing superior security products to the information security industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards 2016 ceremony to be held March 1, 2016 in San Francisco.
“From Duqu 2.0 to mobile cyber threats to the nearly $1 billion stolen from financial institutions by the Carbanak cybercriminal group, 2015 saw near-exponential growth in the number and complexity of cyberattacks,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “As the bad guys shift and pivot strategies, so too do the men, women and companies working to stop them in their tracks. These finalist have shown that they are the best at what they do.”
The SC Awards, now in its 19th year, are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. Winners in the Excellence category are determined by an expert panel of judges, handpicked by SC Magazine’s editorial team, for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry. The Excellence Awards honor the professionals, products and services that have proven to be the best in the industry for protecting today’s corporate world from cybercrime.
“SC Magazine’s recognition of Onapsis validates an emerging information security solution category. Organizations in the G2000 have been underserved for too long and SAP cybersecurity threats are on the increase. Onapsis helps organizations running SAP to minimize the economic impact of attacks aimed at business-critical applications,” said Mariano Nunez, CEO, Onapsis. “The Onapsis Research Labs has also found that thousands of the world’s largest organizations are either vulnerable or already exposed to threats. These applications are the ultimate economic targets for cybercrime and have previously been a blind spot for many Chief Information Security Officers,” continued Nunez.
“As a finalist, Onapsis demonstrated unique innovation in its approach to protecting companies from the onslaught of malicious attacks,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “Onapsis’ solution represents some of the most effective security technology on the market today.”
