Datto's Global State of the Channel Ransomware Report 2018

Datto's Global State of the Channel Ransomware Report 2018

By Chris Brunau

We recently surveyed over 2,400 MSPs who serve small-to-mid-sized businesses around the globe about ransomware. Today, we published the key findings in Datto’s annual State of the Channel Ransomware Report.

This report provides a complete and unique view of the ransomware epidemic's impact on the channel and SMBs across the world.

Let's check out a few key stats from the ransomware report: 

  • From Q2 2016 - Q2 2018 79 percent of MSPs report ransomware attacks against SMBs. In the first half of 2018 alone, 55 percent report attacks against clients.
  • 92 percent of MSPs predict the number of ransomware attacks will continue at the current rates or become worse in the future. 
  • On average, MSPs report more than five attacks per client each year. However, only about 24 percent of those attacks are reported to authorities, which means the problem is likely bigger than we know. 
  • MSPs rank BDR as the most effective for ransomware protection compared to other solutions such as training, patch management, and antivirus software.
