Rob Rae, VP of Business Development for Datto, joins Brian for a post DattoCon 2018 wrap up.

A hugely successful event with 1600 MSP’s in attendance and 2,200 overall guests.

Datto and Autotask are looking to set the pace in the channel with many new platform and product updates last week. To name a few:

  • Rapid Rollback
  • Direct to cloud file sync and share
  • Advanced Back-up Verification
  • Enhanced Autotask Integration
  • RMM 6.0
  • New access points and switches
  • Improvements to the Datto networking appliance

Datto partners today represent 500K SmB’s in 132 countries protecting 441+ Petabytes of data.

What does growth in the channel look like over the next 3 – 4 years and what security trends is Rob personally seeing and predicting?

He credits the IoTSSA community for having the ‘Weird and Awkward’ conversations that others aren’t in order to determine what the near future of security looks like and the steps the channel needs to take in order to best protect their clients….Thanks Rob…we think?
