Austin, TX -- June 19, 2018 -- Datto, the world’s leading provider of IT solutions delivered through managed service providers (MSPs), announces today record growth at the company’s annual partner conference, DattoCon. Datto welcomes Sir Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group and world-renowned philanthropist, and Robert Herjavec, respected entrepreneur and star of the hit reality TV show Shark Tank, to the stage at the event, which is now the largest open ecosystem MSP event in the industry. The sell-out conference brings over 1,500 MSPs from 25 countries - a 50 percent increase in attendance over last year’s event.

Since the start of 2018, Datto has achieved a number of significant milestones, including:

  • Attracting more than 1,900 new Managed Service Provider Partners, bringing Datto’s partner base to more than 14,000.
  • Serving more than 500,000 small and medium-sized businesses in 132 countries through their group of Managed Service Provider Partners, and protecting 440+ petabytes of data.
  • Over 30 percent growth in recurring revenue year over year.

“After an exciting end to 2017, including being acquired by Vista Equity Partners and merging with Autotask, we started off 2018 with high expectations, and we’re happy to report that we’re more than meeting them,” said Austin McChord, Datto CEO and Founder. “Our new products and services, which I’ll announce later today, have been designed for MSPs, enabling them to grow and take advantage of the massive market opportunity.”

Combining efforts with its annual Autotask Community Live conference, DattoCon18 represents the first open ecosystem conference for MSPs who use products and services from an array of vendors. Attendees will hear insights from and network with an impressive lineup of speakers from Datto and other leading organizations in the channel, and are encouraged to visit event sponsors showcasing competitive solutions from a variety of providers.

“It’s never been a better time to be an MSP,” said Brian Weiss at ITECH Solutions. “Growing datasets are getting more difficult to manage, and with additional concerns like new regulations and security vulnerabilities, more and more SMBs are coming to MSPs like us. Datto is always ahead of the curve, and as a result of the combined synergies with Autotask, is giving us the tools and support we need to expand our business. As always, I’m excited to attend DattoCon and see what other innovations Datto has in store.”

Additional information on product and company announcements at DattoCon18 is coming later today.
