Datto acquires BitDam to boost its cyber threat detection business


Datto, an American company that is mainly into data backups, has made it official that it is going to gain Israel-based company BitDam by May 2021 end. The deal comes just after a few weeks when it purchased ThreatLocker to boost its security operations further for Managed Service Provider (MSP).

Trade analysts say that Datto might plan to protect its customers from ransomware, data thefts and shadow IT and so is making relative acquisition to achieve so.

BitDam offers Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) solution that enables customers to protect their IT infrastructure against malware, phishing and ransomware. And Datto will integrate the same into its backup and security products to help customers seeking its business continuity and disaster recovery services.

In November 2020, SolarWinds, an IT software company was hit by a data breach where hackers infiltrated its database through vulnerability in Orion Software. Microsoft and the white house later blamed Russia for launching attack on the sensitive government networks that include Department of Homeland Security and the Treasury of State.

Datto wants to ensure that its infrastructure and services are poised in such a way that they easily win the trust of the customers regarding privacy and security.

“Security has always been the core of Datto’s offering, and we have been addressing the most prevalent security issues to the core among all MSPs. And BitDam’s acquisition will help us further in doing so,” said Tim Weller, the CEO of Datto.
