Datto Workplace Delivers Benefits for SMBs and MSPs

By Andrew Burton

Enterprise file sync and share (FSS) solutions like Datto Workplace allow users to save files in a secure storage repository that can be accessed from any PC or mobile device. These tools can increase employee productivity and ease collaboration—as a result, FSS has become popular among small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Benefits of collaboration tools include:

  • Flexibility: File sync and share tools allow employees to access files anytime, on any device, without the need to log into a corporate VPN. Users can safely and easily access and edit documents from home or while traveling.
  • Improved Collaboration: FSS tools enable simplify document sharing, allowing users to collaborate on a single document rather than multiple versions.
  • Increased Productivity: Along with the ubiquity of mobile devices, FSS has fundamentally changed the way businesses operate. By easing access to documents, FSS gives employees the ability to work at times they might not have in the past. These tools simply make it easier to get work done, increasing productivity.

However, some SMBs use consumer-grade FSS services, which lack the security and oversight capabilities of a true enterprise-class collaboration tool. This can lead to data loss, ransomware infection, and costly business downtime. When employees use consumer FSS tools, data is stored outside the business’ control. This is a problem, especially when employees leave the company—since the business may have no way to access those files.

As an MSP, it’s your job to provide the tools your clients’ require to be successful. It’s also about staying one step ahead of potential issues.
