Open Systems announced the appointment of Geoff Haydon as Chief Executive Officer. With more than 20 years’ experience growing successful cybersecurity companies, Haydon is tasked with enriching Open Systems’ cybersecurity platform and increasing the company’s share of the managed security market, which IDC expects to be the fastest growing segment of global security spending by 2024.
Open Systems announced the appointments of Fredrik Torstenssen and Ric Longenecker as the company’s Chief Revenue Officer and Chief Information Security Officer, respectively. The addition of these executives comes as the company’s service deployments have exceeded 8,000 worldwide and demand continues to grow for its integrated security and networking services, including Open Systems’ Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) services.
Open Systems announced that it has been listed as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s 2020 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services1 (MDR). This news comes as the company’s recently launched MDR service has already won notable deals with several enterprise customers to protect more than 150 of their sites worldwide. MDR is an increasingly popular security option for enterprises.
