Open Systems Wins Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Enabling Technology Leadership Award For Global Managed SASE

Award marks the latest of several industry awards and analyst recognition in recent months

Open Systems, the leading provider of native, managed SASE solutions with a superior user experience, today announced that Frost & Sullivan has presented Open Systems with this year’s Best Practices Enabling Technology Leadership Award for the global managed Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) industry. Frost awarded this honor to Open Systems following a review of current SASE market offerings, based on Open Systems’ exemplary service and performance.

Key takeaways from Frost & Sullivan’s evaluation of Open Systems include:

  1. A stand-out commitment to customer service quality that is embodied in the way it puts its most valuable human resources on the customer support front lines.
  2. A clear understanding of the importance of managed SASE services to mid-size enterprises.
  3. A platform that is ideal for hybrid work environments where customer assets and resources are spread across the cloud, private internet sites, and in internal data stores.


Open Systems’ commitment to customer service and experience was an important factor for Frost & Sullivan evaluators, who cited Open Systems’ senior development staff – who write the code for the company’s managed SASE platform – participating in customer support engagement rotations. This rotation is unique to Open Systems, and lets customers receive expert counsel directly from expert engineers.

Equally impressive is Open Systems SASE Experience, which eliminates the complexity of secure global access and network management, including network support challenges such as remote and hybrid workforces, applications and data in the cloud and on-premises, shadow IT, branch offices, and constant global threats, threat actors, and malware. In this dynamic, challenging business environment, Open Systems’ extreme reliability and easy, comprehensive global support enable customers to focus on their business priorities.

Toph Whitmore, Industry Director, Cybersecurity, Frost & Sullivan, said: “When enterprises move from legacy security hardware infrastructure to a SASE environment, they get better security and often dramatic operating cost reductions. Adopting a managed-SASE service like Open Systems also gives them SLA-guarantee peace of mind and predictable security budget-forecasting.”

“CIOs encounter an ever-increasing number of threats with a global presence, an increasingly hybrid workforce, and a dynamic economy that demands agility and premium service. As always, they must as always exceed these business-critical goals with limited resources,” said Stefan Keller, Chief Product Officer, Open Systems. “Open Systems provides the reliability, security, scalability and agility to provide the dependable, tailored and secure access foundational to organizational success. We are honored to receive this important recognition from one of the world’s top technology analyst organizations, Frost & Sullivan.”
