The Oakland Unified School District is a public education school district that operates 100 elementary, middle, and high schools in Oakland California, serving over 37,000 students and nearly 3,900 staff.
As a critical strategic initiative, OUSD leadership wanted to remove any hurdles to their cloud-first goals. When looking to adopt cloud applications, OUSD faced four primary cloud cybersecurity challenges:
1) Compliance and Student Privacy Protection
2) Inappropriate Behavior and Cyberbullying
3) Suspicious User Behavior and Security Breaches
4) Cloud Malware

After evaluating the market, Oakland Unified School District quickly narrowed in on CloudLock as the vendor of choice to realize their vision of a cloud-first organization based on the ability to deliver:
Using CloudLock to detect the usage of objectionable language and evidence of questionable behavior and cyberbullying in real time gives school administrators a considerable advantage in combating malicious student behavior. Additionally, forensics capabilities allow school officials to investigate incidents after the fact to paint a complete picture of precisely who did what and when. CloudLock also enables the security team to promote digital citizenship, holding end users accountable for their behavior and using these moments as educational opportunities.
As OUSD continues to grow, John Krull expects the institution to continue to adopt cloud applications - and extend CloudLock in parallel. “As a design partner, we enjoy an ongoing bi-directional conversation with CloudLock; they are proactive and eager to work with us, understanding the unique needs of the K-12 market. As a school district with limited resources and a highly-ambitious educational vision, it’s amazing to have such a close partnership and impact on the ongoing growth of the CloudLock Security Fabric.”
