Open Systems Wins a Stratus Award for Cloud Security Services

The Open Systems MDR+ service is recognized in award program identifying the companies, products and people that offer unique solutions that take advantage of cloud technologies

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.—September 27, 2022—Open Systems, the only cybersecurity services provider with Mission Control, today announced that it has won a coveted 2022 Stratus Award in the Cloud Security Services category, based on the industry-leading capabilities of the Open Systems MDR+ managed detection and response (MDR) service. This is the sixth award that Open Systems has so far won in 2022.

Open Systems MDR+ is a cloud-native 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.

“Open Systems eliminates the complexity that prevents so many organizations from effectively protecting themselves against increasingly sophisticated cyber threats,” said Geoff Haydon, CEO of Open Systems. “By maximizing the Microsoft security tools they already have, MDR+ simplifies customers security and improves their security maturity. Receiving this Stratus Award is an honor and a testament to our ongoing commitment to protecting our customers.”

“Open Systems is at the forefront of the cloud, helping to drive practical innovations in the cloud,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer of Business Intelligence Group, which runs the Stratus Awards program. “The cloud is now part of the fabric of society and we are thrilled that our volunteer judges were able to help promote all of these innovative services, organizations and executives.”

In addition to the Stratus Award, Open Systems has so far won the following five awards this year:
