In this blog, we will continue to outline what we discussed in Part 1 of this series and what we demonstrated in our session at DattoCon last week. We will be diving into the technical aspects of the tools used and how they were configured.
Your team has deployed next-gen anti-virus, applied the latest security patches, and your are forwarding all endpoint telemetry to a managed detection and response vendor. The question you have now is - how can you ensure that the deployed defenses are working properly and you will be notified of malicious activity?
There are countless tools available to managed service providers (MSPs) to help them mitigate the risk of ransomware for themselves and their small and medium business (SMB) clients. There’s no single solution that can completely prevent a business from an attack, but rather many that work together. MSPs should consider their RMM tools as a key component in their ransomware mitigations strategy.

Reality is, there is no foolproof way to prevent a ransomware attack. Even the most protected and prepared businesses can fall victim to ransomware. However, there are steps MSPs can take to lower the chances of their SMB clients being hit with an attack.
The Datto Information Security Team is actively monitoring the Kaseya VSA security incident. As soon as there is more information available on the exploit being used and how to detect it, Datto will assess if scripts can be developed to aid partners.
Remote monitoring and management (RMM) platforms play an important role in helping managed service providers (MSPs) reduce client downtime through real-time monitoring and proactively securing and protecting managed devices from known vulnerabilities.
