Open Systems MDR+ Recognized for Automation and Collaboration Capabilities That Ensure Outstanding 24x7 Detection and Protection Against Advanced Threats

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – December 6, 2022 – Open Systems, a leading provider of next-gen managed detection and response (MDR) services and winner of the 2022 Microsoft Security MSSP Partner of the Year award, announced today that TMC has named the Open Systems MDR+ as a recipient of the 2022 INTERNET TELEPHONY Cybersecurity Excellence Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.

“This Cybersecurity Excellence Award recognizes Open Systems MDR+ as a next-generation MDR service with advanced automation and collaboration capabilities that help customers prioritize, decide and act to reduce risk and mitigate threats fast. It is this combination of proactive prevention with faster, more accurate threat response that separates MDR+ from solely reactive MDR solutions,” said Geoff Haydon, CEO of Open Systems.

Open Systems MDR+ is a next-gen MDR service that provides organizations with the comprehensive cybersecurity capabilities of a world-class security operations center (SOC), securing their assets from endpoints to cloud. At the heart of MDR+ is Mission Control, a 24×7 global security operation that combines certified experts, exemplary processes and seamless technology that integrates with and extends the Microsoft 365 E5 security stack. This enables customers to mitigate threats and reduce risk by fully operationalizing their existing security investments, shrinking their attack surfaces and shortening the mean time to respond (MTTR) to threats.

“Congratulations to Open Systems for being honored with an INTERNET TELEPHONY Cybersecurity Excellence Award for innovation in IP communications. the Open Systems MDR+ service has demonstrated outstanding quality and has delivered exceptional, measurable, tangible results for its users,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.
