Datto, the global provider of cloud-based software and technology solutions purpose-built for managed service providers (MSPs), has strengthened its security offering with the acquisition of BitDam Ltd., an Israel-based cyber threat detection company.
BitDam’s cyber-defence platform protects cloud-based email and collaboration tools, such as M365 and Google Workspace, from ransomware, malware and phishing, including unknown threats, from within a user’s inbox, chat or cloud drive.
Tim Weller, CEO of Datto, said: “Cyber resilience has been at Datto’s core since the launch of our flagship Continuity service and the Datto Cloud over a decade ago. This acquisition marks an important step on our security journey, coming on the heels of our recent launch of Ransomware Detection in Datto RMM. Both deliver new revenue and margin opportunities to our 17,000 MSP partners just as cyber attacks on SMBs are proliferating.”
