Open Systems and Patriot Maximize Microsoft Security Investments

Open Systems and Patriot Maximize Microsoft Security Investments

By Greg Tavarez

Cyber threats grew in volume and sophistication in the third quarter of 2022, and attack surfaces became more dynamic. According to data released by Check Point Research, global attacks increased by 28% in the third quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021.

With the rise in attacks, organizations turned to security ecosystems, such as the one provided by Microsoft. However, some organizations lacked the resources and expertise to get the most out of the Microsoft security stack.

To help Microsoft customers improve their security posture, next-gen managed detection and response services provider Open Systems, 2022 Microsoft Security MSSP Partner of the Year, added Patriot, a Microsoft Security partner, to its channel partner program. The two combined Open Systems MDR+ service with Patriot’s systems integration capabilities to enable Microsoft customers to fully operationalize their existing Microsoft security investments.

Open Systems MDR+ was built for Microsoft environments and delivers Mission Control for cybersecurity – a global security operation that combines certified experts, proven processes and seamless technology integrated with and extending the Microsoft 365 E5 security stack.

MDR+ delivers 24/7 protection, improves security maturity continually and gives InfoSec teams more time for strategic initiatives. The service 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 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. “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.”

Patriot has deep knowledge in Microsoft technology and focuses on securely deploying Microsoft Cloud technology with an emphasis on knowledge transfer. Doing this empowers its clients to feel confident about their security and investments in the Microsoft platform.

“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,” said Chris Raniere, chief revenue officer for Open Systems.
