Datto launches ransomware protection

Datto has announced the availability of enterprise-class ransomware protection for small and midsized businesses, now available from Datto’s managed service provider partners. Built into Datto’s suite of products, ransomware protection and recovery automatically detects and identifies attacks, notifying administrators to immediately rollback to healthy data. The solution shortens downtime, saves money and reduces the impact to businesses, giving companies an effective and reliable alternative to paying hackers’ ransoms.
With Datto’s new ransomware detection feature, available on Datto SIRIS and ALTO devices, MSPs can easily identify a ransomware attack and roll systems back to a point in time before the attack hit. Ransomware, like most illicit software, leaves an identifiable footprint as it takes over a server, PC or laptop. Datto’s devices, which actively monitor backups, can detect a ransomware footprint and instantly notify admins that they have a ransomware attack on their hands. Recovery is then simply a matter of restoring from a previous backup.
