For backup and disaster recovery (BDR) Security Compliance can be a multi-tiered, multi-faceted monster. Industry verticals such as banking, health care, insurance and energy production all have different regulatory requirements to protect information systems.

Adding to this confusion are a bevy of security control frameworks offered by organizations such as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the International Standards Organization (ISO). Therefore, navigating through this compliance thicket can be confusing.

Datto is an award-winning vendor of backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and Intelligent Business Continuity (IBC) solutions, providing best-in-class technology to customers throughout North America and Europe. Datto is the only hybrid-cloud BDR/IBC vendor that provides instant on- and off-site virtualization, and screenshot backup verification, achieved through its Inverse Chain Technology.

The Datto product line addresses the specific needs of small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The product line is composed of Datto SIRIS 2, Datto ALTO, Datto ALTO XL, and Datto SNAP NAS. Its solutions serve a range of vertical markets including: healthcare, financial, education, banking, legal, manufacturing, retail, and municipal.

Until recently, business continuity options for small businesses have been limited. In April 2013 the first enterprise grade business continuity solution was introduced — Datto ALTO. For the first time, small businesses with local storage needs ranging from 500GB to 1TB, had the opportunity to implement a solution that delivered image-based backup with instant full system recovery and Hybrid Virtualization. That wasn’t enough for Datto and small businesses. Datto ALTO 2 builds on the success of ALTO with a significant increase in performance and reliability.

ALTO 2 takes the best functionality of the original ALTO, combined with significant software and hardware upgrades, making it the most advanced business continuity appliance in the small business market.  The product sports a brand new CPU, which is two times as fast, and a new motherboard that is more reliable and offers better support for Datto’s Inverse Chain Technology. The chassis is also redesigned to support dual gigabit NIC technology to enhance networking and restore processes. USB 3.0 ports are located on the front panel to speed up RoundTrip processes. It is definitively the most exciting business continuity solution for small business.
