In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
1.) No impact on end users: No proxy, no agents, no gateway, no impact on end user experience. ManagedMethods uses API integrations to provide IT managers the ability to monitor, control, and enforce what happens inside cloud applications, regardless of whether or not a user has accessed it from within company network.
2.) Easy to use, easy to afford: Other vendors seem to think that complicated and expensive equals more secure. Particularly for smaller organizations with limited budgets, this couldn’t be further from the truth. ManagedMethods consistently receives feedback that it is among the most intuitive products for IT managers and system admins to use. At ½ to ⅓ of the cost of competitors, ManagedMethods also makes cloud security easy to afford.
3.) Extendable and scalable: ManagedMethods allows customers to leverage existing cybersecurity investments and can be deployed in multiple cloud applications. The product scales automatically to include new user accounts as staff and/or students are added.
ManagedMethods makes cloud security easy for small IT and InfoSec teams with a lot on their plates. Customers and prospects consistently rate ManagedMethods as among the most intuitive and effective cloud security platforms on the market.
ManagedMethods provides IT and InfoSec teams with critical visibility and control of their cloud environment without the need for agents, proxies, or gateways. The product provides phishing and malware threat protection, data loss prevention, policy and compliance enforcement, and unsanctioned app discovery for Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite, Slack, and any OAuth SaaS applications.
API integrations into each SaaS application means ManagedMethods operates as if it is part of the application; something that no legacy security product or cloud access proxy gateway can do. This level of integration provides the ability to monitor, control, and enforce what happens inside the application, regardless of whether or not a user has accessed it from within company network.
Because legacy cybersecurity solutions won’t work within cloud applications, we partner with top cybersecurity vendors to integrate their capabilities into ManagedMethods and further protect sensitive customer data. Partnerships include Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Partner Network, Cylance, Gigamon, Lastline, Stormshield, and WatchGuard. Through these integrations, ManagedMethods can detect and act upon potential harmful malware or external threats, gain deeper visibility into application use and encrypted traffic, and more.
ManagedMethods is an official Google for Education Partner and is FERPA and CSPC certified by iKeepSafe.
ManagedMethods has experienced tremendous growth and adoption in the 12 months the product has been in-market. As the only cloud security solution focused on K12 education and SMBs, ManagedMethods is providing a valuable solution to market segments that are adopting cloud applications the fastest, though are often least able to effectively secure sensitive data.
