Protecting your organization against cyberattacks isn’t simply about having the right tools, it’s about knowing how to use them. That means making the most of your security technology investments, by effectively operationalizing them to reduce risk, mitigate threats and continuously improve the strength of your security posture.

“With today’s economic uncertainty and ongoing talent shortages, organizations need comprehensive security that allows them to protect more without expending more,” according to a recent blog written by Vasu Jakkal, Microsoft Corporate Vice President for Security, Compliance, Identity, and Management.

For customers who want to standardize on the Microsoft security stack, it’s critical to partner with an MDR provider that knows how to maximize their investment. As the 2022 Microsoft Security MSSP of the Year, Open Systems MDR+ is a next-generation managed detection and response (MDR) service specifically designed to do just that. And we are proud to announce our latest recognition as a verified Microsoft MXDR solution provider.

MDR with Unrivaled Microsoft Focus and Expertise

Open Systems MDR+ operationalizes Microsoft’s extensive XDR security suite and augments it with threat hunting, proprietary threat detection, and orchestrated response to protect customers around the clock. Our unrivaled Microsoft focus and expertise provides three key benefits for Microsoft security customers:

  1. Tool Consolidation Without Compromise: Unlike other MDR providers that only support Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, MDR+ leverages the entire Defender 365 XDR suite and additional solutions like Defender for IoT and Azure AD. By operationalizing all the Microsoft security solutions, MDR+ enables customers to rely on the Microsoft security stack and consolidate their security portfolio while ensuring their entire attack surface is covered.
  2. Fast Coverage Against the Latest Threats: Thanks to our exclusive focus on Microsoft, MDR+ rapidly reduces the time required to adopt new signals and capabilities released in Microsoft security controls. This results in faster coverage against the latest threats across your growing attack surface.
  3. Maintain Data Residency: The underlying architecture of MDR+ maintains our customers’ data in their Microsoft Sentinel instance, satisfying even the most stringent data residency requirements and reducing overall complexity.

As customers adopt more of the Microsoft security stack, MDR+ incorporates the new telemetry sources and capabilities into our 24x7 managed service.
