Datto Unveils Next-Generation Cloud-Managed Ethernet Switches and Secure Remote Access Solutions for MSP and SMB MarketsJanuary 25, 2023
Datto announced availability of its second-generation family of cloud managed switches, along with global expansion of the early access for its secure remote access solution, Datto Secure Edge.

Additionally, Datto is giving partners new ways to purchase its networking gear. Now, MSPs and small- to medium-sized businesses can choose to buy Datto networking solutions with an up-front payment option for hardware coupled with a support service subscription, or put zero down, and have the hardware cost spread out and added to the service subscription.
“Networking is essential to every business imaginable,” said Marcus Ward, general manager of Datto Networking. “Datto is committed to providing enterprise-grade networking solutions for small to mid-sized businesses that are reliable, easy to deploy, manage, and use, at prices and purchasing models that make sense, and that are available today.”
Datto Managed Ethernet Switches – Making the Network Work for You
Designed for easy and efficient remote management, Datto switches are all cloud-managed, and can be set up and running within minutes. Built for a variety of business environments, Datto switches come in low, medium and high-density configurations, and include scalable power over Ethernet on all copper ports, which eliminates the need for additional and costly power runs or injectors to power endpoints, such as wireless access points, IP cameras, smart lights, point-of-sale systems and more.
Four new models round out the Datto switch family. These are:
- DSW100-8P-2G, which includes 8 GbE copper ports, and 2 SFP optical ports
- DSW100-24P-4X, which includes 24 GbE copper ports, and 4 SFP+ optical ports
- DSW100-48P-4X, which includes 48 GbE copper ports, and 4 SFP+ optical ports
- DSW250-8P-2X, which includes 8 2.5GbE copper ports, and 2 SFP+ optical ports
Datto switches complement their existing line of Wi-Fi access points, which support the latest high-performance Wi-Fi 6 standard, as well as their integrated secure router, which provides comprehensive firewall and routing needed for small- to medium-sized businesses.
Datto Secure Edge – Providing Zero Trust Access to Remote Workers
Also today, Datto is expanding global availability of their cloud-based secure remote access solution, Datto Secure Edge, which gives workers next-generation firewall protection from the cloud and advanced networking capabilities needed for today’s SaaS work environments.
