BOULDER, Colo.—October 14, 2020—ManagedMethods, the leading Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 cybersecurity, student safety and compliance platform for K-12 school districts, today announced it has been named the winner of the “Data Security Solution of the Year” award by CyberSecurity Breakthrough. This is the second consecutive year ManagedMethods has been recognized in the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program, after being recognized as the “Cloud Security Startup of the Year” in 2019.
“In the new remote learning and hybrid learning environments K-12 school districts are operating in this year, a pain point we often see is the securing of student and staff data outside of school networks,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer at ManagedMethods. “Districts are using new applications to make the classroom virtual, and we’re proud to be recognized as a leading solution innovating the way sensitive district data is secured—especially when created, stored, and accessed remotely.”
ManagedMethods empowers school districts with full visibility and control of the data being stored within Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 cloud applications. The platform uses machine learning-powered malware and phishing protection, detects and remediates account takeovers, and secures data from malicious and accidental data breaches. This recognition from CyberSecurity Breakthrough follows the introduction of new cybersecurity and student safety monitoring features for Google Meet & Chat and Google Classroom by ManagedMethods.
“ManagedMethods’ focus on the emerging cybersecurity and safety risks schools face today is critically important,” said James Johnson, Managing Director at CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Congratulations to ManagedMethods for breaking through the crowded market, innovating data security in the new age of K-12 education.”
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. This year’s program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.
