How MSPs Can Minimize Downtime with Datto

MSP Best Practices

When disaster strikes and operations go down, businesses panic. That anxiety is warranted.

According to Datto’s 2019 State of the Channel Ransomware Report, 85 percent of managed service providers (MSPs) surveyed reported ransomware attacks against small-and-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in the past two years.

In fact, nearly half of those attacks led to business-threatening downtime. With an effective business continuity solution, MSPs can eliminate client concerns during a disaster such as a storm or a ransomware attack. Good backups are obviously essential for disaster recovery.

However, recovering a large dataset from a backup is time-consuming. That’s why organizations need business continuity. Beyond simply recovering data, a business continuity solution keeps operations running on a secondary, local system or in the cloud, while primary systems are restored—avoiding potentially devastating downtime. Sometimes a disaster is as minor as an accidental deletion of a specific file, folder, or image. Other times, an entire office is destroyed or rendered inaccessible.

That’s why MSPs need a complete toolbox of restore capabilities that match a variety of recovery scenarios. MSPs shouldn’t be held back or slowed down by bad backups or lack of restore options.

Datto’s business continuity solutions give MSPs the tools they need to address any type of disaster. To learn more about Datto’s solutions, check out our new eBook.
