As a security provider to MSPs, Datto needed a pentest partner that could support its goal of delivering world-class security to its customers.
Datto is a cybersecurity, business continuity, and disaster recovery provider for IT Managed Service Providers (MSPs). The company’s integrated, world-class products and services provide MSPs with a comprehensive toolkit to manage their business, drive efficiency and growth, and expertly protect their customers. As a provider of secure cloud, SaaS, and file protection services, Datto places security at the heart of its business.
Initially, the main driver for Datto’s pentesting program was SOC 2 compliance. The company previously worked with a handful of third-party vendors who delivered pentesting services, but their approach to to vulnerability reporting did not integrate with Datto’s Agile development workflows. As a customer since 2018, Datto has taken advantage of additional pentest use cases with Cobalt, including use of Agile Pentesting, more targeted engagements that focus on a specific area of an asset, while continuing to comprehensively pentest for compliance.
