The Datto File Protection/Datto RMM Integration offers the following major benefits:
- Seamless, silent deployment and removal of File Protection using Datto RMM. The File Protection team key allows you to install or uninstall the File Protection Agent without end user interaction.
- Alerting on key problems of File Protection, like devices not running backups for days. Tickets can also be created from the alerts in Autotask PSA if the ticket integration is enabled in the DattoRMM/Autotask PSA Integration.
- Visibility on File Protection status in Datto RMM. Any managed device will display the File Protection status, backup size, and last backup day. You can use this information in reports or filters in Datto RMM. Moreover, if you use the Autotask PSA Integration in Datto RMM, and the user-defined field (UDF) synchronization is enabled, the File Protection information will be synced to your Autotask PSA configuration items.
