Kajeet to Bring Next-Gen Private 5G to Schools & Students Across America in Partnership with Google Cloud

McLean, Virginia, June 14, 2022Kajeet, a world-class provider of private wireless and managed IoT connectivity, today announced a collaboration with Google to deploy its Private 5G Platform on Google Distributed Cloud Edge. The goal of the partnership is to help transform the future of education by: 

  • Connecting the unconnected students and communities with high-quality wireless Internet and Close the Digital Divide once and for all 
  • Empowering Learning Anywhere by combining Kajeet’s public & private wireless networks with Google’s Chromebook and Classroom EDU solutions. 
  • Creating Smart Schools, powered by the Kajeet Private 5G Platform & Google Cloud, to enhance classroom activities and enable a next-gen immersive learning experience for students and teachers.  

Many school districts aspire to provide adequate off-campus broadband access to their staff and students. According to the White House, more than 30 million Americans live in areas where broadband infrastructure is unable to provide minimally acceptable speeds. Kajeet, in step with Google, strives to end the connectivity gap with Smart, Simple, and Secure Private 5G networks for schools, neighboring communities, library systems, community colleges, and universities to easily connect all of their people, places, and things.    

Kajeet is a trusted wireless partner to educational institutions, with over two decades of experience providing managed IoT and public internet connectivity to over 3,000 school districts.  There is a great need to provide safe, secure, and reliable private wireless service for students and communities in underserved markets.  Kajeet is in the process of planning and designing several Private 5G networks using Google Distributed Cloud Edge for school districts across the country that will launch later this year. 

“Google has been a long-standing partner in our education business for equitable access and network reliability to students using Google Chromebooks. We are very excited to extend our partnership in enabling a unique Private 5G experience to schools and students across America,” said Derrick Frost, SVP and GM of Private Wireless Networks at Kajeet. “Google Distributed Cloud helps us realize economies of scale in a common environment encompassing private networks at the edge, a private data center, and the public cloud. It enables us to deliver a consistent set of security, lifecycle management, policy, and orchestration of resources across all customer locations.”

With organizations across the world implementing new solutions to stay connected, including video communication, it has created a diverse ecosystem of solutions and technologies from different providers.

ManagedMethods Partners With K12 SIX

PARTNERSHIP DEMONSTRATES MANAGEDMETHODS COMMITMENT TO INCREASE CYBERSECURITY AWARENESS IN PROTECTING K-12 CLOUD ENVIRONMENTS

BOULDER, Colo.—February 23, 2022—ManagedMethods, the leading Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 cybersecurity, student safety, and compliance platform for education has partnered with K12 SIX, a non-profit member of the Global Resilience Federation’s network of information sharing communities. K12 SIX is a cyber threat intelligence sharing hub to aid in preventing and mitigating cyber attacks against school districts.

School districts are leading in the adoption of cloud computing with platforms such as Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, and popular video conferencing applications. Despite all the challenges in securing their cloud environments, IT teams must be credited for a valiant effort in ensuring schools remain safe and secure. Regardless of their size, technology departments need all the resources and partners available to help stay ahead of the cybersecurity curve and thwart emerging threats.

“Cloud computing is creating new types of cyber threats toward school district data and student information,” said Charlie Sander, Chief Executive Officer at ManagedMethods. “Over the past couple of years, they have become prime targets and have consistently fallen victim to cyberattacks. By partnering with K12 SIX, we hope to help  IT teams and leaders better understand the need for cloud security and access resources they need to make schools a safer place for everyone.”

A recent ManagedMethods report found that over 90% of district administrator respondents currently operate in the cloud using Google Workspace and/or Microsoft 365. However, half of the respondents either do not have a security system protecting their cloud data or do not know if one has been implemented. This indicates that many school districts are under-protected against cyberattacks specifically targeting sensitive and valuable data stored in the cloud.

Through this partnership, ManagedMethods will support K12 SIX in sharing cloud security information with school district members. This collaboration will help educate district administrators and technology leaders about the cyber threats existing in the cloud, the security gaps the cloud creates, and best practices for filling those gaps.

“School districts maintain millions of confidential records on current and former students and staff — records that threat actors find valuable in funding their criminal operations. Given the rapid increase in school cybersecurity incidents in recent years, it is imperative that districts take immediate steps to protect the sensitive information held in the cloud-based IT systems they manage,” said Doug Levin, national director of K12 SIX. Partnerships, like this one with ManagedMethods, help us achieve the shared mission of uplifting the cybersecurity risk management practices of all school districts.”

For more information about ManagedMethods, please visit managedmethods.com. Learn more about K12 SIX at k12six.org.

About K12 SIX

Kindergarten Through 12th Grade Security Information Exchange (K12 SIX) is a cyber threat intelligence sharing hub for school districts, to aid in preventing and mitigating cyber-attacks. This non-profit member community is a cost-effective forum for crowdsourcing security information among a vetted, trusted group of professionals with a common interest, using common technology and with supporting, independent analysis from the K12 SIX security staff. Visit www.k12six.org to learn more. K12 SIX is a member of the Global Resilience Federation multi-sector network of information-sharing communities.

Fastest-Growing EdTech Provider Trox + Tierney to “Bluum” Under New Brand

PHOENIXJan. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Having already transformed into North America’s leading education technology company, Trox + Tierney will continue to grow in the education markets under the new brand of Bluum beginning today. The higher calling of ensuring every student has access to a world-class education remains the company’s mission.

The April 2021 Trox and Tierney merger resulted in a technology solutions provider with a robust suite of technology products and services, AV design and integration, and professional development for educators. Many of Bluum’s 775 employees stem from education, providing first-hand experience and unrivaled knowledge to their former colleagues.

“Our company’s growth has occurred through mergers and acquisitions, as well as organically, more than tripling our revenue over the past three years,” Bluum CEO Erez Pikar said. “We are united under one aspirational brand and a vision of creating equity and access in education. All of our employees equally share in this identity, which aligns with our mission, objectives and pursuit of continued growth.”

Recently named to the top half of the 2021 Inc. 5000 List of “America’s Fastest-Growing Companies” and one of the “Top 10 Integrators” by Systems Contractor News, Bluum is rooted in the belief that education is the single most vital step toward a more positive and equitable tomorrow. The wonder of learning and the benevolence behind increasing student engagement heavily influenced Bluum’s new logo and design.

“The inspiration for our brand name came from Bloom’s Taxonomy, a fundamental philosophy in every educator’s toolkit,” Vice President of Marketing and Communications Diane Mitchell said. “The act of ‘blooming’ signals a moment of transformation when the right set of people, resources and knowledge come together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Technology is only the beginning. Our level of care and involvement with every customer sets us apart in making an impact on the user and the outcome.”

Today’s announcement is the first step in a phased rebrand, which includes the launch of a new e-Commerce site this spring. While the Bluum brand will serve its education customers, the company also introduced the Bluum Technology brand to continue to develop its existing business and government customer base.

For more information on the new brand, visit bluum.com and bluumtech.com.
