Datto’s innovative technologies include Instant Virtualization, Screenshot Verification, Inverse Chain Technology, Backup Insights, and end-to-end encryption. All Datto solutions are supported by 24/7/365 in-house technical support and selected products offer time-based cloud data retention, for predictable billing and budget management.
Datto has introduced new products which complement the enterprise solutions for servers to include backup of local desktops and laptops with Datto AEB, and backup of Office 365 email, Teams, and Sharepoint and Google mail using Datto Saas. These solutions have similar features as the enterprise solutions to set frequency of backups, number of copies to retain, and cloud restore from a console. These have been critically useful with the advent of Work From Home and the explosion of distributed data with the increase of cloud based file storage. Datto also has a sync and share program to rival other solutions called Workplace.
