Datto acquires BitDam to help shape the security roadmap for MSPs

Datto announced that it has acquired BitDam. BitDam’s cyber-defense platform secures collaboration tools, such as M365 and Google Workspace, from ransomware, malware, and phishing.

Its leading threat detection technology was built to stop zero-day threats including those that do not match any known malware signatures, proactively defending against malware and phishing threats within a user’s inbox, chat, or cloud drive.

Year after year, MSPs report phishing as the most common cause of successful ransomware breaches, according to Datto’s annual Global State of the Channel Ransomware Report, a survey of global MSPs.

“Cyber resilience has been at Datto’s core since the launch of our flagship Continuity service and the Datto Cloud over a decade ago,” said Tim Weller, CEO of Datto.

“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.

“We welcome the elite BitDam security team to Datto as we continue to execute on an ambitious security roadmap for our partners.”

“We are thrilled to be joining the Datto team to help shape the security roadmap for MSPs as threats evolve globally,” said Liron Barak, BitDam’s co-founder and Chief Executive Officer.

“Thanks to the talented BitDam team, whose excellence in cybersecurity technology innovation has led our journey here, our patented technologies can help protect cloud-based remote workforces from unknown cyber threats at an even greater scale through Datto.”
