BOULDER, Colo.—April 7, 2021—ManagedMethods, the leading Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 cybersecurity, student safety and compliance platform for K-12 school districts, today announced the company has been named a finalist in three categories of The EdTech Awards 2021 program. ManagedMethods was named a Cool Tool finalist in the security solution and student data privacy solution categories, and a Trendsetter finalist as a product setting a trend in edtech.
District IT departments continue to face new challenges surrounding cybersecurity, student safety, and compliance in schools. The security perimeter in schools continues to expand as students, teachers, and staff use video conferencing and cloud-based collaboration tools more consistently. This increase in cloud activity outside the traditional security perimeter exposes districts to more vulnerabilities for IT teams to address.
ManagedMethods quickly answered the call from K-12 IT leaders for more monitoring and reporting of school activity in Google Classroom, Google Meet and Chat due to the rapid increase in new hybrid learning environments. These features introduced in 2020 not only help protect school data infrastructure and the personal information of students and staff. ManagedMethods also helps monitor for signals of student safety risks in learning environments powered by Google Workspace and Microsoft 365.
“Trying times revealed strengths and capabilities of people, and workability of products. Leaders and innovators with their tools and techniques worked hard to keep the learning world connected to knowledge and each other. As so many have shown, nothing can stop the human spirit—and we continue to move forward,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the program.
This award recognition for ManagedMethods comes on the heels of ManagedMethods being listed as a 2021 Awards of Excellence for Remote Learning winner by Tech & Learning. For more info about ManagedMethods and its award-winning platform, please visit our How It Works page.
