Minimising Downtime with Datto's Restore Toolkit
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% of managed service providers (MSPs) surveyed reported ransomware attacks against small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the last 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 organisations 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 find out how, download our Minimising Business Downtime with a Complete Restore Toolkit.
