K-12 Cloud Security Risks Checklist

ManagedMethods Named A Winner of the 2019 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Awards

2019 Cloud Security Excellence Awards Winner ManagedMethods Cloud Computing MagazineBoulder, Colo.,—January 9, 2020—ManagedMethods, a leading Google G Suite and Microsoft Office 365 data security and student safety platform for K-12 school districts, today announced it has been named as a 2019 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award winner in the Cloud Security category.

“K-12 school districts are increasing their use of cloud applications, including G Suite and Office 365, and we’re proud to be recognized by Cloud Computing Magazine as a platform helping schools protect against the data security risks that come with cloud computing,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer at ManagedMethods. “Protecting against cybersecurity risks will be a large focus of K-12 schools in 2020 and beyond. We look forward to further supporting the schools in need.”

The Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine, recognizes companies in two distinct categories—Cloud-Delivered Security and Cloud Security—that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market.

Schools continue to adopt G Suite and Office 365, and cybersecurity and student safety have converged as a result. Students and staff spend more time in the digital world, store massive amounts of sensitive information in the cloud, and are now a top target for cyber attacks. Because of the growing demand for G Suite and Office 365 data security, ManagedMethods today secures over 1 million student and staff accounts in over 600 schools across the U.S. and Canada.

“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, CEO, TMC. “ManagedMethods is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to this crucial market segment.”

The announcement of ManagedMethods’ award win comes off the heels of the company’s announcement of its Microsoft Education Specialist Certification.

ManagedMethods Earns Microsoft Education Specialist Certification

Microsoft Education Specialist Partner Network (MPN) ManagedMethods CertificationBoulder, Colo.,—January 7, 2020—ManagedMethods, a leading cloud application security provider, today announced the company is now a Microsoft Education Specialist partner. As an education member of the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN), ManagedMethods is well-equipped to continue supporting K-12 school districts in protecting cloud applications and securing sensitive student and staff information.

“We’re seeing rapid adoption rates of Microsoft Office 365 across the education market. As a result, K-12 school districts are becoming more exposed to the risks of operating in the cloud,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer at ManagedMethods. “Office 365 is one of the most widely deployed cloud services and we look forward to helping schools experience the collaboration benefits of the cloud — without exposing themselves to emerging security risks.”

Today, there are more than 900 million devices running Windows 10 and over 200 million monthly active users of Office 365 worldwide. ManagedMethods’ partnership with Microsoft Education is a key component in helping school districts running on Office 365 remain compliant with federal and state regulations, including FERPA, COPPA, and CSPC.

“We welcome ManagedMethods to Microsoft’s Education ISV Partner Go-to-Market (GTM) campaign. This collaboration allows CIOs to develop partnerships with industry experts that can keep education institutions and students safe and their data safeguarded.” Jim Federico, Principal Product Manager, Education, Microsoft Corp.

IT teams have access to more robust data security and student safety monitoring and controls. While Microsoft provides excellent native security features, many district system administrators enjoy the additional layer of security to protect students, families, and staff from the litany of cyber threats targeting schools today. ManagedMethods has also built unique student safety monitoring capabilities into the product to help administrative staff identify explicit content, cyberbullying, and self-harm red flags within school Office 365 accounts.

Today, ManagedMethods secures over 1 million user accounts in over 600 schools across the U.S. and Canada.

ManagedMethods Wins Best Overall IT Solution in 2019 EdTech Breakthrough Awards

Boulder, Colo. June 12, 2019 — ManagedMethods, a leading provider of cloud application security solutions, announced today that EdTech Breakthrough has selected the company as the winner of its “Best Overall IT Solution for the Education Market” award in the inaugural EdTech Breakthrough Awards program. EdTech Breakthrough is a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global education market.

The K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center’s 2018 State of K-12 Cybersecurity Report, sponsored by ManagedMethods, found that a new cybersecurity incident strikes K-12 schools every three days. The study also found that nearly 60 percent of these incidents result in students’ personal data being compromised. ManagedMethods’ mission is to protect students and schools against these threats.

“ManagedMethods has worked closely with IT leaders and system administrators in various school districts to build a product for the education industry that proves that cloud security doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive,” says James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “As schools embrace cloud application technology, such as Google for Education and Microsoft Office 365, student and staff personally identifiable data has suffered hundreds of breach incidents. ManagedMethods has built a powerful platform for the education market and we are thrilled to recognize the company in the 2019 EdTech Breakthrough Awards.”

The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including student engagement, school administration, adaptive learning, STEM education, e-learning, career preparation and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 1,500 nominations from over 12 different countries across the globe.

K-12 schools face difficult cybersafety and security issues, in addition to administrators maintaining compliance with data regulations, protecting student and staff personally identifiable information and creating a safe learning environment on a limited budget. All the while, schools are grappling with societal issues and being targeted by cybercriminals.

“We think that we owe it to our children to do better, both in terms of securing their data privacy and their safety on campus,” says Charlie Sander, chairman and chief executive officer of ManagedMethods. “When ManagedMethods broke into the cloud security market in 2017, we wanted to show the education industry that cloud security doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. As we continued to work closely with K-12 IT staff, we realized that our technology could also be used to screen for student safety red flags. Combining cybersecurity and safety capabilities in our platform has been a boon for school districts as they grapple with these challenges. Our customers love that they can use ManagedMethods to secure sensitive data in the cloud as well as alert staff to self-harm, cyberbullying, violence and explicit content risks,” Charlie Sander explains.
