Boulder, Colo. May 1, 2019 — ManagedMethods announces its new certified partnership with Google for Education. As part of the Google for Education partnership program, ManagedMethods will be even better equipped to continue helping K12 school districts protect sensitive student information. The platform is also key to helping districts remain compliant with federal and state regulations, such as FERPA, COPPA, and CSPC.
“When we learned that K12 school district information is among the most vulnerable to cyberattack, we knew we needed to do something to help,” explains Charlie Sander, CEO of ManagedMethods. “We had the technology and the cost structure to be able to focus on this really underserved area in the cybersecurity industry.”
90 million teachers and students are using G Suite for Education worldwide. And while Google provides administrators with a high level of security controls and compliance safeguards, many system administrators were finding they lacked the visibility and control they used to have with on-premise IT. That’s where ManagedMethods comes in.
ManagedMethods’ partnership with Google for Education means better Google account monitoring and control for K12 IT administrators. ManagedMethods will be able to continue improving the product, in close collaboration with the Google for Education team, to bring greater value to K12 school districts. But, most importantly, it will help us all improve on our mission to keep students, teachers, and staff safe and their information secure.
