Datto Announces More Than 20 New Technology Updates at DattoCon19

Cloud Continuity for PCs, SIRIS 4 and a Superior Partner Experience
Showcased, Enabling Faster Performance and Ease of Use for MSPs

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DattoCon– Datto,
Inc.
, the leading global provider of IT solutions delivered through
managed service providers (MSPs), today announced the availability of
more than 20 new products and enhancements at DattoCon19,
the largest open-ecosystem MSP-centric event in the world. The annual
event, in its seventh year, attracted more than 2,900 attendees who
simplify and manage technology for small businesses (SMBs) around the
world.

“Our announcements today at DattoCon spotlight how Datto continues to
innovate in our core product lines that are purpose-built for MSPs,”
said Emily Glass, Chief Product Officer. “Prime examples include Datto’s
cloud-first Cloud Continuity for PCs which extends our capabilities to
protect all SMB data and Datto Networking’s new high-performance Layer 3
switches. These additions help MSPs address critical IT issues for
clients while creating margin opportunities for partners to grow their
managed services.”

Some highlights of the more than 20 new products or enhancements include:

  • Cloud Continuity for PCs: Even with so much data being
    centralized on file servers and SaaS applications, a significant
    amount of important business data still lives on unprotected employee
    PCs. Cloud
    Continuity for PCs
    is an image-based, all-in-one business
    continuity solution for PCs that utilizes Datto’s new patent-pending
    technology. It takes continuous backups and protects critical PC data
    from ransomware attacks, lost or stolen devices or accidental
    deletion. MSPs can now recover individual files or an entire PC image
    without the need for a local appliance, access reliable backups of PC
    data, and virtualize backup images in the Datto Cloud. With this
    latest addition to Datto’s award-winning Unified Continuity suite of
    products, MSPs now only need one vendor to protect all critical
    business data for SMBs.
  • SIRIS 4: The next generation of Datto’s flagship BCDR
    appliances are here. Built for MSPs, SIRIS 4 is the most powerful,
    reliable, all-in-one BCDR solution to date. SIRIS 4 is optimized for
    MSP efficiency with improved backup resiliency and verification,
    enhanced virtualization performance, and increased device durability.
    These new devices include the Intel® Xeon® D Skylake and 2nd
    Generation Intel® Xeon Scalable Cascade Lake processors which feature
    additional cores and a dedicated write cache (SLOG). The enhanced
    computing power means the SIRIS 4 can virtualize 50 percent faster
    than previous devices, virtualize more agents per device, and ensure
    clients’ heavy-duty apps run seamlessly.
  • Datto SaaS Protection for O365 with Vade Email Security: In
    partnership with Vade Secure, the global leader in predictive email
    defense for Office 365, Datto SaaS Protection users can now leverage
    AI-based threat detection, powered by threat intelligence from 600
    million mailboxes globally to detect emerging phishing, spear phishing
    and malware attacks. Available bundled with Datto SaaS Protection,
    this offering provides advanced email filtering natively within Office
    365.
  • Improved Partner Experience with Datto SaaS Protection: Additional
    enhancements reinforce Datto’s commitment to an MSP-friendly SaaS
    Protection solution with a new pricing model and MSP incentives, a
    streamlined client onboarding process and a redesigned SaaS Protection
    Backup Status page with aggregate client metrics that saves time when
    checking account status.
  • Layer 3 Switches and Enhanced Cloud Management: Datto
    Networking
    continues to be the most MSP-centric networking product
    line available on the market. The newly launched E310
    Series Switches
    are fully cloud-managed and deliver enterprise
    performance at an affordable price. Partner-requested features include
    Layer 3 routing, 10Gb SFP+ with Direct Attach Cable (DAC) support, and
    enhanced security features, including support for 802.1x radius
    authentication. This next generation of switches enables Datto
    Networking partners to provide more options to their SMB clients and
    helps them deliver more powerful networking capabilities as managed
    services.

    Also new is Network Manager–Datto Networking’s
    completely redesigned cloud management platform featuring a
    streamlined and more efficient layout, an audit log to track every
    management or system action taken, and events and alerts. This also
    includes native push notifications via the mobile application to
    inform MSPs of important device updates.

  • Datto RMM HTML5 Remote Control Beta and Datto Networking Integration:
    MSPs often rely on remote takeover technology to troubleshoot for
    their clients. To improve this experience for Datto
    RMM
    (Remote Monitoring and Management) partners, Datto announced
    the launch of the BETA of a brand new HTML5 based remote control
    technology that allows support technicians to remote control a device
    in under five seconds from any device using just their browser.

    A
    new, native integration with Datto Networking opens the opportunity
    for MSPs to monitor and control all available network and power
    devices directly within Datto RMM. Also new is an entirely rewritten
    UI, beginning with user-configurable dashboards and the introduction
    of a new dark mode that will be applied throughout the platform in the
    coming months. The user interface will deliver new ways for MSPs to
    intuitively unlock data and work faster within their estate.

  • Autotask
    PSA
    User Experience: All new account dashboards display
    a real-time executive summary of accounts within Autotask CRM, giving
    users an instant understanding of the health of their accounts and any
    actions that need to be taken. The new Opportunity UI provides users
    with a completely configurable layout of sales opportunities,
    including a timeline to display sales velocity, a checklist with steps
    to ensure conversion, and an “insights” rail to understand related
    items. LiveMobile 2.0 for Android was also announced and provides
    Android users with native PSA capabilities while in the field. Dark
    mode is now available throughout the product.
