Open Systems recently achieved the Microsoft Cloud Security Advanced Specialization certification, making us one of 50 partners out of thousands with this designation. This certification – as well as our prior Microsoft Threat Protection Advanced Specialization certification – is a significant achievement that allows Open Systems to cement our place as a member of Microsoft’s managed security service provider (MSSP) program.
