Datto Holds Virtual Event on SaaS for MSPs

By Tracey E. Schelmetic

Increasingly, cyberattacks are not just a headache for the largest of enterprises. Small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are being targeted as well. Often thought to be softer targets for cyber-attacks, many SMBs don’t have the type of robust protection they need for disaster recovery, and they often pay the price. According to a report by Vistage, successful cyberattacks are responsible for more than 60 percent of closures of small and medium businesses. With attacks becoming a constant, managed services providers and their SMB clients need access to solutions that alert them to the latest threats and position them to proactively fend off attackers.

Datto Holding Corp. is a provider of security and cloud-based software solutions designed for delivery through the managed service provider (MSP), channel to small and medium businesses (SMBs). The company recently held an MSP Technology Day entitled “Elevate your SaaS Security: Defend, Backup, Recover.” The virtual event outlined ways MSPs can proactively defend against cyberattacks, limit downtime and prevent critical data loss for their clients. While the live event was held on March 24th, would-be attendees can review the entire presentation on Datto’s web site.

The event covered the recently launched Datto SaaS Defense, demonstrating how it functions in unison with Datto SaaS Protection as the first and last lines of defense for SaaS applications to provide multi-layered protection. MSPs heard from Datto’s Chief Executive Officer, Tim Weller, along with the Information Security Team, product specialists and a panel of their MSP peers, on how MSPs can protect themselves with advanced threat protection for Microsoft 365. Participants received advice on how to leverage Datto solutions to grow their business, and got a sneak peek at updates for key Datto offerings that will continue to shape the future of cybersecurity in the MSP channel.

“The MSP community faces immense pressure on many fronts. With a 300% increase in cybercrimes reported daily since the pandemic, we must evolve along with threat actors that seek to seize organizations’ most valuable asset– data,” said Tim Weller, CEO of Datto. “For this reason, Datto will continue to use MSP Technology Day and other forums to share the latest threat intelligence and findings that our community requires to implement MSP-centric security solutions that prepare them to better identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from cyber events.”

To learn more about how MSPs can provide your organization with protection against cyberattacks, plan to attend MSPEXPO, part of the #TECHSUPERSHOW series. MSPEXPO has been designed to help service providers understand how they can drive more recurring revenue, increase the valuation of their companies, grow, and protect their networks and deliver better customer service. It will also help companies looking for MSP partners to understand how MSPs can help them grow. The show will take place June 21 - 24, 2022 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For more information or to register, visit the show website
