Cincinnati, OH, and Redwood City, CA – September 16, 2019— Advanced Technology Consulting, Inc. (ATC), a leading IT consulting firm, and Open Systems, a global provider of network and security as-a-service solutions, have partnered to provide enterprises with the expertise, support and solutions to quickly and easily deploy SD-WANs, while reducing both cost and complexity.
The partnership draws upon ATC’s decades of experience, strategic relationships and extensive market knowledge in deploying disruptive technologies that provide real benefits to clients. Based on conversations with customers, ATC recognized the need for a simple approach to security operations and was impressed with Open Systems’ method of providing a secure SD-WAN and SOC-as-a-Service.
“We see Open Systems as a leading SD-WAN provider,” said Nick Enger, ATC’s CTO. “The breadth, depth, and capabilities of the Open Systems portfolio is impressive, and addresses the most critical needs of our clients. We invest time and resources vetting our solution providers so that our clients don’t have to.”
Open Systems’ SD-WAN offers assured security at every layer and AI-assisted automation with around-the-clock network and security operations by world-class engineers. This gives clients complete visibility, flexibility and control over their network—simply and securely. The company is recognized for its commitment to harnessing disruptive technologies like the cloud, IoT, SaaS and AI. Gartner recently named Open Systems in the Gartner 2019 Market Guide for Managed SD-WAN Services.
“ATC’s outstanding combination of proven consultants, success tackling customers toughest IT challenges, and industry knowledge make the company an ideal partner for us,” said David Nuti, who leads Open Systems’ Channel Program for North America. “Though enterprises of all sizes are eager to experience the benefits of SD-WAN, many have been put off by the cost, complexity and security concerns. As partners, ATC and Open Systems are superbly positioned to secure SD-WAN services that meet their needs and overcome their concerns.”
To celebrate this newly minted partnership, ATC and Open Systems will be co-sponsors and presenters at this year’s comSpark.tech event on October 8 at the Sharonville Convention Center. With over 3,000 attendees, comSpark is the pre-eminent tech and innovation event in the Cincinnati area.
