BOULDER, Colo.—April 9, 2020—ManagedMethods, a leading Google G Suite and Microsoft 365 cybersecurity and student safety platform for K-12 school districts, today announced the company was named a 2020 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in the Best Emerging Technology category. Finalists represent the best products, technologies, and services in software, information and business technology.
ManagedMethods is a cybersecurity, student safety, and compliance platform for G Suite and Microsoft 365 built specifically for K-12 school districts. Today, districts face difficult student safety and cybersecurity challenges. K-12 IT teams need to maintain compliance with data privacy regulations and protect student and staff personally identifiable information (PII), all while creating a safe learning environment on a limited budget. Furthermore, districts are grappling with societal issues and being targeted by cyber criminals, which has created the need for IT teams to address cybersecurity and student safety concerns simultaneously.
“Being named a CODiE Award finalist is a testament to the hard work our team has put in to make an industry-leading product protecting K-12 school districts when using G Suite and Microsoft 365, and we’re proud to be recognized by SIIA,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer at ManagedMethods. “Districts will continue to adopt G Suite and Microsoft 365 for the learning and collaboration benefits, and we look forward to securing the data as districts increasingly understand the need to do so.”
Over 650 schools are protected by ManagedMethods today and the number continues to increase. With ManagedMethods, districts are able to better secure student, staff, and district data using machine learning-powered threat protection against malware and phishing schemes, and detect abnormal behavior to prevent account takeovers and the loss of sensitive district data. ManagedMethods also provides content scanning and image recognition for automated detection of cyberbullying, self-harm red flags, threats of violence, and explicit content in district cloud applications.
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-recognized awards program. Business technology leaders, including senior executives, analysts, media, consultants and investors evaluate assigned products during the first-round review. ManagedMethods was honored as one of 150 finalists across 40 business technology categories. Winners will be announced on May 18 during an online winner announcement ceremony.
“The 2020 CODiE Award finalists join a long and distinguished history of innovative products and services destined to transform the way we do business. We congratulate all of our finalists and look forward to seeing their impact across the B2B market for years to come,” said Jeff Joseph, President of SIIA.
