CyberSecurity_Breakthrough_Award_500pxBoulder, Colo.,—October 3, 2019—ManagedMethods, a leading provider of cloud application security solutions, today announced it has been named the winner of the “Cloud Security Startup of the Year” award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.

Companies are increasingly embracing cloud applications, including Google G Suite and Microsoft Office 365, and have become prime targets for cyber threats that have led to tens of thousands of data breach incidents — exposing millions of records. ManagedMethods’s mission is to secure the sensitive personal information, and financial futures, of tens of millions of school children, businesses with big ideas and people working to make our communities a safer place.

“As the cloud security industry consolidates, many vendors have lost sight on emphasizing customer satisfaction and service,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer of ManagedMethods. “ManagedMethods is hyper-focused on creating highly satisfied customers with a high-quality product that not only solves many of their problems but also provides an excellent level of customer support that companies do not experience with the large security vendors. We are pleased to receive this industry recognition and 2019 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award.”

ManagedMethods’s cloud application security platform is built specifically for IT and InfoSec managers of organizations with limited budgets, addressing this new cloud security landscape. Today, ManagedMethods secures over 1,000,000 cloud app user accounts in over 500 schools in the U.S. and Canada. K-12 IT teams are quickly switching to ManagedMethods from other vendors due to its excellent data security tools, affordability, and top-rated customer support.

“ManagedMethods is already an established cloud security leader in the education market, and they are now taking their innovative platform to the commercial market,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “As millions of larger companies have now moved to Google G Suite and other cloud-based applications, ManagedMethods is in a prime position to move upstream and empower these larger enterprises to combat today’s complicated cloud security issues. We extend a hearty congratulations to the ManagedMethods team on their well-deserved 2019 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award designation.”

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from over 15 countries throughout the world.
