“When I first learned about Cloud Monitor I was skeptical that such an inexpensive solution would be able to secure our Google Workspace data better than Cloudlock. However, after our first week using the solution, I was more than convinced. Cloud Monitor has been one of the best technology decisions I’ve made this year.”

Ed Newman

“The addition of Cloud Monitor to our IT infrastructure allows me and my team to feel confident about protecting our students and staff when using Google Workspace. The dashboard and alerts provide me real-time info so that I can take immediate action to thwart any threats.”

Steve Bartlett

“Cloud Monitor solution provided us a level of visibility we needed to ensure the security and safety of our students and staff. The solution was quick to deploy and gave us immediate insights.”

Outlook 365 Cloud Security

Gain an additional layer of Outlook 365 security without expensive Microsoft license upgrades. Cloud Monitor provides an easy-to-use platform that uses the security power of top threat protection technology. Automatically scan email domains, attachments, and content in the subject and body of all emails for potential threats and data loss prevention policy violations.

Using Cloud Monitor, district IT teams can quickly quarantine, analyze, and delete files before they become a problem.

OneDrive Cloud Security

OneDrive is a powerful file storing, backup, and collaboration tool. It allows students, faculty, and administrative staff to access and save files from anywhere to improve productivity and learning experiences. But storing data in the cloud doesn’t come without security risks.

Perimeter and network security do not protect data stored in the cloud, and Microsoft’s native cloud security only goes so far before requiring expensive upgrades. Without OneDrive security, data breaches result in unfettered access to sensitive information, such as student social security numbers, staff W2s, school payment information, and more.

ManagedMethods protects your data from both external threats and internal user data breaches. Using advanced cloud security technology, ManagedMethods scans for files containing malware threats, blocks suspicious login attempts, and flags unusual account behavior.

SharePoint Cloud Security

SharePoint was added to Office 365 for Education as a powerful platform for better team access and collaboration, for students as well as faculty and staff. But improved access can also result in decreased data security and complex access management.

ManagedMethods provides Office 365 for Education system administrators with critical insights into what files and folders contain sensitive information. IT teams can also see who has accessed the file, how many times it has been downloaded, and more. All from one easy-to-use platform.
