Datto Announces Global Expansion Plans for 2018
Datto is pleased to report on our unprecedented growth in 2017, including the addition of more than 2,900 MSP partners. In addition, we have announced plans to build on that positive momentum for 2018 with new products, partnership programs, and new hires and promotions.
Following the acquisition by Vista Equity Partners and the merger with Autotask, specific results for 2017 were unveiled today regarding partners, revenue growth, and global expansion. Datto’s top-notch solutions and customer support, combined with Autotask’s IT management tools including PSA and RMM, reflect an unparalleled range of capabilities for the MSP community. These capabilities are being further bolstered by additional news this week:
Product Updates: Datto announced an upcoming update to the Autotask Endpoint Management product. Dubbed the “Reporting Release”, this impactful update includes a new flexible report scheduler and significant improvements to how partners produce professional and accurate end-client reports. The release also includes updates to other areas of the product including Patch Management, Antivirus Management, and a dramatic improvement in ticket creation through the unification with Autotask PSA.
Global Partner Program: As a 100 percent channel-drive company, we have rolled out a formal referral program globally. This program incentivizes existing MSPs partners to refer new partners to Datto. Partners who refer new clients are eligible for a $1,000 referral bonus if their referral makes a purchase within 6 months of submission.
New Hires: Datto anticipates hiring more than 100 (net) new employees this year in both North America and the UK. The new positions include software and product engineers and can be viewed here.
Executive Promotions: Several promotions within the company’s senior leadership team were recently communicated: Michael Fass will now serve as Datto’s General Counsel and Chief People Officer; Tim Weller as the company’s Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer; and Matthew Richards as interim Chief Marketing Officer.
