SMBs Targeted in 80% of Ransomware Attacks


Datto Holding Corp has launched two continuity solutions, including its next generation SIRIS 5 product featuring up to 4X the performance and Cloud Continuity for PCs.

Last year in Q4, over 80% of ransomware attacks targeted SMBs, with an average business interruption of 20 days following successful attacks, which can be crippling for a smaller organisation. To survive attacks, SMBs must have access to business continuity solutions that can quickly restore their data and operations to prevent significant downtime and business interruptions. Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) is an established backbone of any ransomware recovery strategy.

The SIRIS 5 appliance will run on purpose-built certified hardware powered by Dell. Each SIRIS 5 device will undergo stepped-up comprehensive quality testing at a Datto facility and is backed by Datto’s 5-year warranty.

“An MSP’s best defense against evolving ransomware threats is a high-performing and reliable BCDR solution一and SIRIS 5 is Datto’s most powerful and flexible solution yet,” said Bob Petrocelli, Chief Technology Officer at Datto. “With its cloud-first architecture and integrated security, the SIRIS platform was created for MSPs, delivering an essential all-in-one solution for backup and recovery. We’re proud to release our flagship SIRIS 5 product which will deliver next-level reliability and performance when it matters most.”

“The number one concern for our clients is what a cyberattack would mean for their business. We need strong backup and recovery solutions in place if all else fails to ensure they’re up and running with minimal disruption,” said Razwan Ahmad, CEO of N.O.C. Systems LLC, a Datto MSP partner located in Connecticut. “With SIRIS 5 we know we’re covered. Datto’s world-class technology and support enables us to protect our clients’ data and livelihoods with the strongest solution.”
