How to Protect Businesses from Ransomware

By Chris Brunau

As the threat of ransomware continues to grow, how can MSPs guarantee their clients are protected infection? According to our recent State of the Channel Ransomware Report-ANZ, a backup and disaster recovery solution is the most effective form of ransomware protection.


With Datto Ransomware Detection, available on 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. After that, recovery is simply a matter of restoring from a previous known good backup. Datto protects all of your business data, no matter where it lives.
