ManagedMethods Recognized as a Standout Product Helping Students, Parents, and Teachers Succeed as They Head Back to School
BOULDER, Colo.—August 31, 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 a winner in Tech & Learning’s Awards of Excellence for Back to School program. This award marks the second Tech & Learning has recognized ManagedMethods for in 2021, following its Remote Learning award earlier this year.
“We are proud to be named a standout product helping protect students, teachers, and districts,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer at ManagedMethods. “It’s clear cybersecurity and student safety are a top priority for district IT teams. We look forward to the opportunity to help make schools safer, especially as the use of Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 cloud applications in the classroom increases.”
School districts continue to be targeted by cyberattacks resulting from phishing campaigns aimed at students and staff. Phishing leads to compromised district accounts, the loss of sensitive data, ransomware, and more that impact the ability of students to learn. The increased activity outside of school when using newer tools like video conferencing in Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom—paired with more cloud-collaboration use—makes it more difficult to protect against the growing threats.
With ManagedMethods, district IT teams can better detect when phishing attempts are made and any unusual activity signaling an account takeover. IT teams can automatically suspend a district account, issue password resets, and quarantine emails and files in order to remediate any risky activity.
“As we head into another uncertain year in education, technology will continue to be one of the key drivers for innovation,” said Christine Weiser, Tech & Learning Group Publisher. “Our judges chose the winning products recognized here for their versatility, compatibility, value, and ability to help schools solve challenges and support continuous instruction. Congratulations to all of our winners.”
