The leading global provider of cloud-based software and security solutions purpose-built for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Datto Holding Corp. announced that it had acquired threat detection and response company Infocyte, enhancing Datto's security capabilities to protect, detect, and respond to cyber threats found on endpoints and in cloud environments.
Infocyte is a leader in Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technologies and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, with headquarters in Austin, Texas. Infocyte's patented technologies continuously collect and correlate data from endpoints to identify potential attacks. It was founded by threat intelligence experts from prominent cybersecurity organizations within the US military. A team of specialized security analysts in a Security Operations Center (SOC) uses this technology to respond to heightened cyber threats in real-time.
“Datto has always focused on enabling its MSP partners to secure the digital assets – both applications and data – of their Small and Medium Business (SMB) clients. The addition of the Infocyte team and technologies augments our capabilities within the critical Protect, Detect, and Respond stages outlined in the NIST organizational security framework,Infocyte’s offerings are complementary to Datto RMM Ransomware Detection and SaaS Defense application security products in those same NIST stages.”
Tim Weller, CEO of Datto
Weller continued, “In 2022, we will continue to leverage the power of our Datto RMM platform by fully integrating Infocyte’s patented technology, further securing endpoints and fortifying this key first line of defense for MSPs. Today, we welcome the Infocyte team, who will join us in developing our rapidly expanding set of MSP-delivered security offerings. MSPs are squarely in the security business, so Datto continues to make security a top investment focus.”
“We look forward to joining Datto and to further securing the SMBs and other clients served by its vast network of MSPs around the world,” said Curtis Hutcheson, CEO of Infocyte. “Securing endpoints from advanced threats continues to be a top challenge for SMBs. With Datto’s partner community and growing security portfolio, we will be able to dramatically expand our reach to millions of endpoints under management, enabling Datto’s partners to provide their SMB customers with leading detection and response technologies.“
