The 2023 Fortress Cybersecurity Awards sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep our data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers. Haydon was recognized for launching Ontinue as the industry’s leading AI-powered MXDR provider, more than doubling MDR revenue every year since joining the company and spearheading the acquisition of Tiberium to strengthen the Ontinue offering with advanced collaboration and AI-driven automation.

“I’m honored to be named a winner of this award, and excited to lead Ontinue as we continue advancing our Ontinue ION MXDR service to ensure our customers receive the best possible nonstop protection,” said Haydon. “Ontinue ION sets an entirely new standard for MXDR services with its advanced capabilities like AI-driven automation, collaboration and prevention. I couldn’t be more proud of the entire Ontinue team which has been instrumental in driving the service forward so that our customers are positioned to confront today’s cyber threat landscape.“

Ontinue ION uniquely delivers Nonstop SecOps with 24/7, always-on protection while increasing overall security program maturity, efficacy and scalability. ION overcomes the shortcomings of traditional MDR solutions in several ground-breaking ways, including the first Microsoft Teams-based collaboration model for seamless real-time communication between SecOps, IT and all other security stakeholders. Ontinue is also pioneering the use of generative AI and automation to accelerate the detection and response to threats faster than ever before. Complementing these advanced capabilities of the ION service is the deep Microsoft security expertise of Ontinue’s ION staff, which enables customers to maximize the capabilities of their Microsoft security investments.

“We are so proud to name Geoff Haydon as a winner in the 2023 Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like Ontinue are critical at providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”
