The provider of data protection solutions for business, Datto, has announced availability of Datto Networking for European managed service providers (MSPs).
The company said its Datto Networking is a MSP-centric product line, designed for service providers that includes powerful Wi-Fi access points, cloud managed Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches and a robust network security appliance with fully integrated unlimited 4G LTE failover. All of which is simply managed in the cloud via the Datto Partner Portal. In addition to the its networking announcement, the company also revealed several updates to its back up and business continuity solutions.
The Datto Networking product line, according to company, addresses the common challenges MSPs face when trying to deliver networking products as managed services. Created to specifically meet the unique needs of MSPs and how they work, Datto says its Networking offers “a centrally managed, multi-tenant device view through Datto’s Partner Portal, consolidated and synchronised billing, and 24x7x365 Direct to Tech customer support”. Datto Networking, it said, is expected to significantly increase market opportunities for partners across Europe by providing MSPs with an offering that is easy to deploy and manage while delivering great value.
The Datto Networking product line includes:
Datto Networking Wi-Fi – Datto Networking Wi-Fi features the next generation AP42 quad core 802.11ac wave 2 access point fully managed in the cloud. With rapid deployment options, “just-plug-it-in” installation, auto meshing and auto-optimisation features designed to continually fine tune Wi-Fi performance, Datto says its Networking Wi-Fi delivers the performance SMB customers need, with a management interface optimised for the MSP.
Datto Networking Switches – The Networking Switches deliver robust Layer 2 management features and are easily configured and managed from Datto’s Partner Portal. With fast backplanes, PoE budgets ranging from 55W to 740W, easy installation and cloud-based remote management, Datto Switches seamlessly integrate with Datto Networking Wi-Fi access points and include PoE+ (802.3af/at) on every port.
Datto Networking Appliance – The Networking Appliance is a cloud managed router, firewall and Wi-Fi appliance with fully-integrated 4G LTE Internet failover. Available globally, the appliance features intrusion detection and prevention, and cloud management. By using the Datto Networking Appliance, the company said, MSPs can greatly reduce their truck rolls because businesses are able to stay online even when ISPs do not.
“Datto is focused on enabling our MSP partners throughout Europe to expand the services they provide,” said Andrew Stuart, managing director of Datto EMEA. “Designed from the ground up, Datto Networking products hallow the MSP for greater ease of management to ensure their customers remain highly productive.”
