Enhanced with Advantech Total Shield

Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS) mimics the popular Software-as-a-Service model, giving access to hardware along with accompanying software, maintenance, installation, and upgrades.

Advantech Total Shield eliminates the complexity of the traditional monolithic purchase model by turning them into secure, fully managed services leveraged for your business. Bringing your company all the benefits with none of the stress.

  • Single point of contact - No need for you to spend your valuable time contacting vendors for billing or technical questions we will handle all of the behind-the-scenes work.
  • Round the clock monitoring - 24/7/365 monitoring for service disruptions, problems, or security threats means you never have to worry about the tools that your business relies on.
  • Remote Management - We love to visit our clients in person but Cloud Managed Services allow for 99% of tech calls to be resolved right away with minimal disruption to your day.
  • Jump over the hurdle of upfront costs - it often makes more economic sense to not own an asset. Businesses can take assets off of their balance sheet and manage costs as an operating expense.
  • Value Aligned to Actual Needs, Rather than Bells and Whistles - Hardware-as-a-service solutions must be built around real customer needs, and more closely aligned to solve customer problems. You get out of the trap of over purchasing a solution with features, bells, and whistles that you never use.

Below you will find a selection of our Managed Hardware Offerings.

LTE Failover Edge Routers

Line Divider e1445314845611 Cloud Managed Hardware

Always connected, fully managed Edge Routers.

When the Internet is down, business usually stops. That’s why we built the Datto Networking family of edge routers, to deliver affordable, always-connected Internet.

With fully integrated 4G LTE Internet failover combined with out of the box ready carrier service (no contract and no overages), Datto’s edge routers enable an MSP to deliver always-connected Internet to its clients. That way, when an MSP’s client loses its primary Internet connection, we automatically failover to the 4G LTE network. For the client, it’s always connected Internet. For the MSP, it’s network continuity to keep its client up and running.

The Datto Networking Appliance (DNA) is purpose-built for the MSP to deliver all-in-one networking in a single, compact device fully managed in the cloud. With robust edge routing, advanced VPN functionality, enhanced web content filtering, fully integrated 802.11ac WiFi, two WAN ports, 4 LAN ports, fully integrated 4G LTE failover and more, the DNA delivers everything an MSP needs to set up a network for its small to medium-sized clients.

Enhanced Web Content Filtering adds a vital security layer at the DNS level, stopping threats before they get to the network. Enhanced filtering also prevents any threats from communicating back out to the Internet. Because of this, Datto’s edge routers are better equipped to prevent malware, ransomware, and command and control attacks.

The power behind this new enhanced level of threat protection is driven by Titan HQ, a service that crawls over 700 million URLs, 6 billion web pages in 200 languages, and reviews 5 trillion search queries in real-time, every single day. With millions of malicious URLs categorized in the system, and 100,000 new malicious entries being added every day, Datto’s MSP partners can be confident in the DNA’s and D200’s ability to effectively protect against unwanted threats and attacks.

Datto Networking’s edge routers deliver the advanced routing performance needed for any small to medium-sized client. With throughput speeds of up to 1.7 Gbps on the DNA (line rate on the D200), layer 7 deep packet inspection (DPI), NATing rules, client/site-to-site VPN functionality, traffic shaping, and more (all managed in the cloud), this is high-performance routing, purpose-built for the MSP.
