Boulder, Colo.,—January 9, 2020—ManagedMethods, a leading Google G Suite and Microsoft Office 365 data security and student safety platform for K-12 school districts, today announced it has been named as a 2019 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award winner in the Cloud Security category.
“K-12 school districts are increasing their use of cloud applications, including G Suite and Office 365, and we’re proud to be recognized by Cloud Computing Magazine as a platform helping schools protect against the data security risks that come with cloud computing,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer at ManagedMethods. “Protecting against cybersecurity risks will be a large focus of K-12 schools in 2020 and beyond. We look forward to further supporting the schools in need.”
The Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine, recognizes companies in two distinct categories—Cloud-Delivered Security and Cloud Security—that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market.
Schools continue to adopt G Suite and Office 365, and cybersecurity and student safety have converged as a result. Students and staff spend more time in the digital world, store massive amounts of sensitive information in the cloud, and are now a top target for cyber attacks. Because of the growing demand for G Suite and Office 365 data security, ManagedMethods today secures over 1 million student and staff accounts in over 600 schools across the U.S. and Canada.
“Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC and Cloud Computing Magazine are proud to announce ManagedMethods as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “ManagedMethods is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to this crucial market segment.”
The announcement of ManagedMethods’ award win comes off the heels of the company’s announcement of its Microsoft Education Specialist Certification.
