Open Systems Provides Innovative IoT Security Monitoring to Protect Microsoft Customers Against Cyberthreats
Open Systems, a provider of next-gen managed detection and response (MDR) services and the 2022 Microsoft Security MSSP Partner of the Year, announced the launch of MDR+ IoT, which extends the 24×7 security monitoring of its award-winning MDR+, a next generation managed detection and response (MDR) service, to protect connected devices used in Internet of Things (IoT) and Operational Technology (OT) applications. By adding IoT and OT telemetry to MDR+, customers benefit from 24×7 detection and response that correlates alerts across their IoT, OT and IT environments for maximum visibility and protection as part of a holistic security program.

“The risk posed by unsecured IoT and OT assets continues to grow”
Corporate adoption of IoT and OT devices has grown at breakneck pace as companies seek to improve their business, manufacturing and supply chain operations, but security for these devices lags far behind their IT counterparts. Typically monitored by bespoke security systems or not at all, these devices can suffer from vulnerabilities that blindside security teams and allow bad actors to breach company defenses. MDR+ IoT addresses this by using Microsoft Defender for IoT to ingest telemetry from customers’ IoT and OT devices so it can be monitored in line with IT assets within the context of the broader environment. By correlating signals from Defender for IoT with signals from the IT environment, MDR+ IoT can better identify true positives and alleviates the need for security teams to manage the thousands of alerts often generated by IoT and OT environments.

By securing IoT and OT devices alongside IT infrastructure, MDR+ IoT protects IoT and OT devices throughout the entire security lifecycle—assessment, prevention, detection, and response. It allows customers to take full advantage of their Microsoft security investments by providing tailored, 24×7 monitoring while reducing attack surfaces and MTTR.
“MDR+ IoT addresses emerging threats we’re seeing across multiple industries. Mitigating security risks around IoT and OT is increasingly critical, particularly for organizations with mission-critical manufacturing and medical technology,” said Tom Corn, Chief Product Officer for Open Systems. “Combining the strength of Open Systems’ MDR+, our next generation MDR service, together with Defender for IoT allows us to minimize the threat surface across our clients’ entire infrastructures, using the same best practices, rigor and workflow that helped Open Systems win Microsoft’s Security MSSP of the Year for 2022.”
“The risk posed by unsecured IoT and OT assets continues to grow,” said Andrew Conway, Vice President Security Marketing at Microsoft. “This integration of Microsoft Defender for IoT with Open Systems MDR+ service provides our joint customers with a compelling solution for discovering IoT and OT devices, and for monitoring them along with their IT assets. This comprehensive solution enables customers to better harden and protect all of their attack surfaces.”
