ManagedMethods, a leading Google G Suite and Microsoft 365 cybersecurity and student safety platform for K-12 school districts, today announced the addition of Google Meet and Chat monitoring and reporting to its platform.
District IT teams face new security, safety, and compliance challenges due to increased remote learning and video conferencing in the classroom. ManagedMethods now gives districts full visibility and control into the activity taking place within Google Meet and Chat to address the unique challenges that come with dispersed students and staff.
“The current circumstances due to COVID-19 have rapidly transformed K-12 education, and brought with it new cybersecurity and student safety challenges. Schools are relying on Google Meet for video conferencing and Google Chat for communications,” said Charlie Sander, CEO of ManagedMethods. “Our new Google Meet and Chat monitoring functionality will give IT teams more insight into school meetings to better protect sensitive data, secure remote learning, keep meetings private and students safe.”
