We’ve come a long way since then; our solution is now used across the globe by thousands of customers to ensure their critical business data is backed up,” says McChord. “We firmly believe we have something special here at Datto, and we are focused and committed to our mission to provide the world’s most reliable and advanced backup and disaster recovery solutions.”
