Open Systems Partners With Patriot Consulting to Meet the Cybersecurity Needs of Microsoft Customers

Prominent Microsoft cloud and security solutions expert joins Open Systems channel program

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – October 26, 2022 – Open Systems, a provider of next-gen managed detection and response (MDR) services and the 2022 Microsoft Security MSSP Partner of the Year, today announced the addition of Patriot Consulting Technology Group, an award-winning Microsoft Security Partner, to its channel partner program. The combination of Open Systems MDR+, a next-generation MDR service, with Patriot’s world-class systems integration capabilities, will enable Microsoft customers to improve their security postures by fully operationalizing their existing Microsoft security investments.

“We are excited to partner with such a leader as Patriot, which is widely recognized for its deep Microsoft expertise, its commitment to excellence and the outstanding service and support it provides its customers,” said Chris Raniere, Chief Revenue Officer for Open Systems. “As partners with complementary capabilities and solutions, we can enable our joint customers to maximize their existing Microsoft security investments and defend these customers from increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.”

Open Systems MDR+ provides organizations with the comprehensive cybersecurity capabilities of a world-class security operations center (SOC). 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.

“Patriot is proud to partner with Open Systems because we feel their exclusive alignment to Microsoft matches our own go-to-market strategy,” said Joe Stocker, Patriot’s CEO. “We partner well because Open Systems shares our core values of Ethics, Urgency, Excellence and Passion. Our mission at Patriot is to help our clients reduce their cybersecurity risks through secure deployment of Microsoft Security technologies. What makes Open Systems such a great partner is they help our clients monitor and respond to threats after we have completed a best-practice rollout of the underlying Microsoft security stack.”
