Kaseya, the leading global provider of unified IT management and security software for managed service providers (MSPs) and mid-market enterprises (MMEs), opened DattoCon today in person following a three-year pandemic-induced hiatus. The conference, expected to attract over 2500 attendees, will be held September 11-13th at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola will be joined by leaders from Datto to articulate the strategic direction of Datto and unveil a host of innovations, including the latest additions to the security portfolio available for Datto Partners to offer to their customers.
“We are super excited about this year’s DattoCon and sharing with our partners, how much stronger we are as a result of Kaseya and Datto coming together,” said Voccola. “We’re also happy to have everyone back together for the first in-person DattoCon since the pandemic – this will be a tremendous opportunity for networking, learning and some fun!”
Voccola will share the vision behind combining Datto and Kaseya and highlight exciting new developments, including new product innovations and enhanced pricing options for Datto partners, during his CEO keynote address. Serial entrepreneur and influencer, Gary Vaynerchuk – known as “GaryVee” – will deliver a keynote address focused on recognizing trends and patterns and how they impact markets and consumer behavior. Vaynerchuk is the chairman of VaynerX, CEO of Vayner Media and the creator and CEO of VeeFriends. Renowned YouTuber, and former NASA engineer, Mark B. Rober, will also take the stage. Rober is known for his popular science and do-it-yourself gadget videos. At NASA, he worked on the Curiosity rover and also spent some time at Apple as a product designer. Additionally, Kaseya Chief Information Security Officer Jason Manar, a former FBI special agent, will join Bryan A. Vorndran, assistant director for the FBI’s Cyber Division, for the “must-attend” fireside chat, Threat Landscape from an FBI Perspective.
New Product Innovations Enable Partners with Security Solutions and New Integrations
Attendees will get a “sneak peek” at multiple innovations planned, including the Datto Managed SOC, powered by RocketCyber, and some game-changing solutions on the horizon, such as Datto EDR, and Datto Secure Edge, a SASE offering. These solutions allow users to securely connect from anywhere and access sensitive data in the cloud.
Additionally, Kaseya has worked to get new products from the Datto acquisition commercially integrated, with the most recent technical integrations, such as Datto BCDR and IT Glue, allowing for increased technician efficiency. Other exciting announcements will help users get the most out of IT Complete. With new modules, including our new Network Suite, and 7 new integrations between Kaseya and Datto products alone in the last quarter, users will see increased innovations in products they’ve already invested in. Additionally, Kaseya One is getting smarter – with 30 new Cooper Insights within Datto products since the acquisition – so technicians can learn how to use their products more effectively.
The highly anticipated DattoCon product update is also back! Product leaders across the company’s unified continuity, security, RMM, PSA, networking, and new IT documentation suites will share the latest product developments and announcements.
Another exciting announcement – Datto’s award-winning Global Partner Program is expanding significantly, offering even more partners the ability to participate in the MSP growth-oriented program. This includes an increase of over 300% in the resources for the program allowing for more assistance in event planning and execution, as well as more than doubling the Market Development Funds (MDF) available for partners to directly assist in the growth of their businesses.
