Datto’s New Cloud Continuity for PCs Wins in Cloud Data Protection/Disaster Recovery Category

Norwalk, CT — November 14, 2019 — Datto, Inc., the leading global provider of IT solutions delivered through managed service providers (MSPs), announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Datto with a 2019 CRN Tech Innovator Award. CRN’s annual awards honor innovative hardware, software, and services. CRN editors evaluated hundreds of products, across 34 technology categories using criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features, and potential to help solution providers solve common IT challenges. Cloud Continuity for PCs, announced in June of this year at DattoCon San Diego, took top honors in the Cloud Data Protection/Disaster Recovery category.

Whether the result of human error, a cyberattack, or a disaster, downtime can affect businesses of any size at any time and requires companies to have a comprehensive plan in place. While most business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solutions are built for enterprise companies, Datto developed its Cloud Continuity for PCs specifically for MSPs serving the small and medium-sized business (SMB) community. Cloud Continuity for PCs is a reliable, all-in-one BCDR solution for PCs. Its agent sits on the protected PC and connects directly to the Datto Cloud without the need for a local appliance. From the Datto Partner Portal, MSPs can recover either a single file or an entire PC with image-based backups. With Cloud Continuity for PCs, MSPs can:

  • Recover the entire PC or individual files and folders
  • Rollback from ransomware attacks
  • Restore lost or stolen PCs
  • Virtualize PCs in the Datto Cloud

“CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards honor technology vendors who work tirelessly to craft ground-breaking solutions for end users, matching the speed of the channel’s evolution,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s award categories deserve congratulations for their success in driving IT innovation forward for solution providers and their customers.”

“At Datto, we strive to provide our MSP partners with purpose-built solutions that enable them to best support their SMB customers,” said Aaron Dun, VP of Product and Growth Marketing at Datto. “Cloud Continuity for PCs has gained immense traction since its release, with a high rate of interest and adoption by partners right out of the gate. We are honored Cloud Continuity for PCs has been recognized for the impact it is having in providing improved efficiencies and reliability for our MSP partners when restoring devices.”

The Tech Innovator Awards will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/techinnovators.
