Secure by Design – For over 100,000 schools

Clever is proud to join forces with the White House and sign the Secure by Design Pledge. We’re committed to supporting a secure, interoperable digital learning ecosystem and providing free and low-cost resources to school districts that strengthen cybersecurity.

Clever’s commitment to Secure by Design

Taking ownership of customer security outcomes requires free to low-cost solutions that support a secure digital learning ecosystem. Clever provides free rostering and SSO, already supporting over 75% of U.S. schools because we believe that every school – no matter the size – should be able to access EdTech quickly and securely.

SSO at no extra charge
Since day 1, Clever has always been committed to providing U.S. K-12 schools with single sign-on at no extra charge.
Security audit logs at no extra charge
Clever provides free security audit logs that allow administrators to monitor and respond to cybersecurity incidents. Login logs are automatically available with up to 14 days of history, and logs for up to 60 days can be provided upon request for no charge.

Embracing radical transparency and accountability is crucial to our mission of connecting every student to a world of learning.

Publish a secure by design roadmap
Clever has employed the secure software development lifecycle since we were founded in 2012. All past and future development projects are required to follow specific product and infrastructure security protocols. We published our Secure by Design roadmap on February 29, 2024 on the Clever Blog.
Publish a vulnerability policy
Clever is proud of our active bug bounty program that rewards external security researchers for reporting vulnerabilities in Clever to us. We’re responsive to security inquiries sent to Clever updated and published our vulnerability policy in November 2023.
Embrace vulnerability transparency
Transparency is at the heart of our business. If there is a Clever vulnerability that needs to be disclosed, we are committed to making documentation publicly available.
Publish security-relevant statistics and trends
Clever already provides this data at the district level and we will publish security-relevant statistics and trends on a quarterly basis.

At Clever, we believe cybersecurity is a group project. We know the sole responsibility of cybersecurity cannot fall on technology or security leaders and their teams. We are proud to name our CEO, Trish Sparks, as our business leader responsible for security.

There’s nothing more important to us than protecting Student Data. This mission guides all aspects of our product design, technology infrastructure, and daily operations. We’re very proud to help thousands of districts protect and secure their data, and we seek to re-earn their trust every day.
