CEO recognized as one of Top 25 Innovators in the Channel

NORWALK, CT – August 11, 2014 — / — Datto, the rapidly growing preferred provider of global hybrid cloud-based backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and Intelligent Business Continuity (IBC) solutions, is happy to announce that Founder and CEO Austin McChord has been named to the esteemed 2014 CRN Top 100 list, cited as one of the Top 25 Innovators. The annual recognition salutes the key players who influence and shape the way the Channel does business.

The CRN Top 100 list is based on feedback gathered from technology solution providers throughout the year by CRN editors with rankings reflecting each company’s channel influence, effectiveness and visibility, along with its business and sales impact on the IT channel. The 100 leaders, hand-picked by the CRN Editorial staff, represent the top influencers, sales leaders, innovators and disruptors in the IT channel.

“It’s really unbelievable to be recognized for the success of Datto and our strengthening position in the Channel,” stated McChord.  “This honor reflects less on me and instead speaks to the dedication of our staff and the support of our partners. Without our MSP Channel partners there is no way Datto would be as successful as it is today.”

As the brainchild and chief architect behind one of the fastest growing technology companies in the world, McChord has guided Datto to global expansion and the introduction of Channel-leading solutions that not only move the industry forward but equip Partners with the necessary tools to mitigate downtime for end-users and build their businesses. Earlier this year, Datto released a new class of products including SIRIS 2, Virtual SIRIS, ALTO XL, ALTO 2 and Datto NAS with new announcements set for Fall 2014.

In addition, the 300+ employee base is spread around the world; corporate headquarters in Norwalk, CT, a build facility in Monroe, CT and offices in Toronto, London, and Sydney and soon to launch Rochester, NY.

“I continue to be impressed by the passion and innovation at Datto,” said Paul Sagan, the Company’s Non-Executive Chairman and XIR at General Catalyst Partners. “It’s rare to see this level of intelligence, passion and willingness to ignore the obstacles in front of you to build a great business, so it’s no surprise that Austin and his team at Datto are receiving this well-earned recognition from CRN.”
