Ransomware: An Increasing Threat
Ransomware is nothing new. The first recorded example was in the late 1980s and it continues to spread at an accelerated pace.

By working with a managed service provider (MSP) you don’t need to do it all on your own. As a trusted MSP we can play a critical role in helping your business stay ahead of the risks and better safeguard your data.
Reduce the Impact of a Ransomware Attack We use Datto Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) to remotely monitor, manage and support clients’ devices on their network. Datto RMM’s Ransomware Detection complements other endpoint security applications such as antivirus packages to provide an extra layer of security and helps reduce the impact of a ransomware attack. It is a behavioral-based engine, rather than a signature-based approach that compares files to a known database, enabling our team to remotely monitor for the existence of crypto-ransomware on your devices, and be automatically notified when one of your devices becomes infected. Once detected, RMM Ransomware Detection isolates the device from the rest of your network to prevent the ransomware from spreading.
• Immediate notification when ransomware is detected.
Instead of waiting for one of your employees to report
the issue, our support technicians will be automatically
notified the moment your files start being encrypted by
• Quarantine the infected device to prevent the spread of
ransomware. Once ransomware is detected, Datto RMM
can automatically isolate the impacted device from the
rest of the network.
• Recover quickly. Devices automatically isolated from
the network still maintain contact with technicians
through Datto RMM so we can help you quickly restore the
impacted device to a previous state.
