BOULDER, Colo.—October 12, 2021—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 as a 2021 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award winner by TMC. The Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award recognizes companies that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market.
“K-12 school districts continue to be leaders in the adoption of cloud technology, but are falling behind when it comes to securing the cloud,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer at ManagedMethods. “District IT teams are in dire need of support. We are grateful to be recognized as a company helping to lead the effort in making schools safer online.”
To keep students and staff connected, school districts have become heavily reliant on the cloud collaboration applications within Google Workspace and Microsoft 365. Access to these applications from outside of school district perimeter security safeguards is increasing. This has exposed districts to emerging cybersecurity, student safety, and data privacy vulnerabilities. The use of unmanaged devices by students and staff at home creates an additional challenge for IT teams to overcome.
ManagedMethods provides a centralized command center for managing Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 cybersecurity and student safety risks. In the past year, ManagedMethods has added monitoring and reporting features for Google Meet, Chat, and Classroom. This gives IT teams more visibility and control of the activity taking place outside the classroom. The company also unveiled its Signals AI-powered student safety monitoring tool to better monitor, detect, and control student safety risks in cloud apps.
“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, Chief Executive Officer at TMC. “ManagedMethods is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to this crucial market segment.”
