FYI, this story is more than a year old

Datto, the global provider of security and cloud-based software solutions purpose-built for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), has launched two continuity solutions.

This includes its next generation SIRIS 5 product featuring up to four times the performance and Cloud Continuity for PCs, improved for the hybrid workforce of today, the company states.

Both all-in-one backup and recovery solutions are designed to help MSPs with best-in-class continuity for their small and medium business (SMB) clients.

In the event of a physical loss, ransomware, hardware failure or other disasters, Datto provides multiple recovery and restore options whether onsite or remote.

Last year in Q4, more than 80% of ransomware attacks targeted SMBs, with an average business interruption of 20 days following successful attacks, which can be crippling for a smaller organisation.

To survive attacks, SMBs must have access to business continuity solutions that can quickly restore their data and operations to prevent significant downtime and business interruptions, Datto states.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) is an established backbone of any ransomware recovery strategy, the company states.

Datto's all-in-one complete BCDR solution with immutable backups and the secure Datto Cloud makes SIRIS 5 a good last line of defence against cyber attacks, restoring business operations for SMBs within minutes.

According to Datto, with SIRIS 5, partners can expect:

  • Performance: Up to four times more performance and an upgraded RAM and CPU that provides faster disaster recovery performance than before.
  • Reliability: Industry-standard server hardware, redundant power supplies, reliable enterprise SAS HDDs, HDD RAID, and advanced diagnostics for improved reliability.
  • Simplicity: Streamlined appliance options consolidate features to optimise performance, plus create an easier selection and upgrade process for partners.

The SIRIS 5 appliance will run on purpose-built certified hardware powered by Dell. Datto states that Dell's server hardware provides the industry-standard in reliability, serviceability, global reach and supply chain resilience.

Each SIRIS 5 device will undergo stepped-up comprehensive quality testing at a Datto facility and is backed by Datto's 5-year warranty.

According to the company, coupled with Datto's around the clock support, Datto partners have access to a robust and reliable business continuity solution.

Datto chief technology officer Bob Petrocelli says, “An MSPs best defence against evolving ransomware threats is a high-performing and reliable BCDR solution and SIRIS 5 is Datto's most powerful and flexible solution yet.

"With its cloud-first architecture and integrated security, the SIRIS platform was created for MSPs, delivering an essential all-in-one solution for backup and recovery. Were proud to release our flagship SIRIS 5 product which will deliver next-level reliability and performance when it matters most.

Razwan Ahmad, CEO of N.O.C. Systems LLC, a Datto MSP partner located in Connecticut, comments, “The number one concern for our clients is what a cyberattack would mean for their business. We need strong backup and recovery solutions in place if all else fails to ensure they're up and running with minimal disruption.

"With SIRIS 5 we know we're covered. Datto's world-class technology and support enables us to protect our clients data and livelihoods with the strongest solution.
