Boulder, Colo.,—December 12, 2019—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 recognized for “Best use of a product in a district” in Tech & Learning magazine’s 2019 Awards of Excellence contest.
K-12 school districts have increased their use of cloud applications, including G Suite and Office 365. While these cloud applications provide cost savings and classroom collaboration benefits, they also come with serious security and compliance challenges for district IT teams. ManagedMethods’ mission is to secure the sensitive personal information, and financial futures, of tens of millions of school children, and people working to make our communities a safer place.
“We’re honored to be recognized by Tech & Learning as a platform helping K-12 IT teams manage data security risks and detect student safety signals when using G Suite and/or Office 365,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer at ManagedMethods. “With limited budgets and staff, protecting against cybersecurity risks can be difficult for K-12 schools. We’re working closely with IT leaders and system administrators in the industry to build a powerful platform specifically for their needs.”
Students spend more time in the digital world than ever before, and more school districts continue to adopt G Suite and Office 365. As a result, the traditionally separate areas of cybersecurity and student safety have converged. At the same time, schools have become a top target for hackers. Today, ManagedMethods secures over 1 million user accounts in over 600 schools across the U.S. and Canada. The company recently announced significant growth in the third quarter of 2019, due to increasing demand for solutions addressing this overlap in K-12 schools.
