Onapsis Inc. Raises Nearly $10M in Funding Led by .406 Ventures to Expand Security Solutions for ERP and Business-Critical Applications

Leading Provider of Security Solutions for SAP and Oracle Secures Funding to Further Address the Growing Threat of Cyber-Attacks Targeting Business-Critical Applications

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwired - June 18, 2014) - Onapsis Inc., a leading provider of solutions to audit and mitigate cyber security threats targeting business-critical applications, has raised $9.58m in funding led by .406 Ventures and supported by Endeavor Catalyst and existing investors.

Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with offices in Argentina, Germany and France, Onapsis protects business-critical applications that manage highly-sensitive business information and processes including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Business Intelligence (BI). More than 100 global brands and nationally-recognized government organizations that run mission-critical software, such as SAP and Oracle platforms, trust Onapsis' expertise and security solutions to understand and mitigate the unique, complex security risks affecting them. 

The $9.58m million funding will allow Onapsis to enhance its product offerings and expand its global sales operations. It will also be used to further enhance the company's research and engineering teams to build on its market-leading products and adapt to the growing demand of the company's solutions. 

Maria Cirino, Partner at .406 Ventures, who will be joining the Onapsis Board, said: "Until Onapsis, we had yet to find a solution that solved an unmet security need for Fortune 1000 companies -- an automated scalable approach to discovering and mitigating vulnerabilities that exist within all complex business critical environments. It's a significant problem for which Onapsis has developed a unique and powerful solution, which is being used successfully today in some of the world's largest SAP environments. We're thrilled to be backing a world class team and a transformational information security company."

"Very few investors understand the cyber security industry as well as .406 Ventures. We are excited about this new partnership and the addition of Maria to our Board, who brings a track record of founding, running and scaling unique security companies," said Mariano Nunez, CEO and Co-Founder at Onapsis. "We are also delighted to count on the support of Endeavor and our existing investors, which have been instrumental in helping us scale our business to support the fast-growing demand for our security solutions."
