Updated Oct 27, 2016


The small business total data protection platform

ALTO is the first fully featured total data protection platform built for small businesses. Easily protect any physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure running on Windows, Mac or Linux, and spin up lost servers in seconds without the need for additional tools. Backup automatically on your schedule to a local device, and replicate backups to the Datto Cloud. Recover granular data quickly from multiple points in time, and use Datto Cloud virtualization to get back to business in minutes.


Ransomware Detection

Datto is pleased to announce the first ransomware detection feature as part of the ALTO Total Data Protection platform. Ransomware, like most illicit software, leaves an identifiable footprint as it takes over a server, PC or laptop. Datto devices actively monitor backups, and when a ransomware footprint is detected, ALTO notifies admins that they have a likely ransomware attack on their hands. From there, recovery is simply a matter of restoring from a previous backup. Stop worrying about ransomware and get back to business fast with ALTO, the total data protection platform.

Direct Restore Utility

Restoring files from a Windows system backup just got easier with the Direct Restore Utility. Using new embedded capabilities on the ALTO, files on any Windows image, including encrypted and deduplicated images, can be explored on the ALTO without booting the entire image in the cloud. When the desired files and folders are found, SIRIS can push them to any Windows device using iSCSI. Why does this matter? Because iSCSI file transfers are faster and preserves ACLs, maintaining permissions in the file transfer when the files are restored.

*All Datto NAS 3 features except ZFS deduplication are available on SIRIS and ALTO devices
