The severity and frequency of global events, violence and other emergencies, their implications for personal safety and business performance, and the complexity of regulatory challenges are increasing.

At the same time, the proliferation of connected devices, mobile and digital communications has accelerated the speed and effectiveness at which people communicate and consume information during all types of incidents.

However, traditional enterprise solutions for critical communications have not kept pace with this increasingly digital world and the evolving threat landscape. These solutions lack the scale and location awareness to reliably address the breadth of challenges that organizations increasingly face. Organizations today require a solution that is engineered for modern critical communications–the ability to deliver comprehensive communications, and location aware and contextual content, to keep people safe and businesses running.

Following the tragic events of 9/11, Everbridge was founded with a vision of helping facilitate this approach and improving the way that people communicate and locate their people in critical situations. Our SaaS-based critical communications platform is built on a secure, scalable and reliable infrastructure with multiple layers of redundancy to enable the rapid delivery of critical communications, with near real-time verification, over numerous devices and contact paths.

Since 2002, Everbridge has been there for thousands of corporations and communities as a trusted critical event management partner. The expertise that we garnered developing our platform, and our original emergency communications application, Mass Notification, led us to leverage our platform for use in other critical business communications contexts. We have developed a full suite of enterprise applications, including the ground breaking Safety Connection, that enable our customers to deliver location aware and contextually relevant communications whether to a broad audience or to a targeted subset of individuals, globally or locally, and accounting for cultural, linguistic, regulatory and technological differences. Today, Everbridge serves over 3,800 enterprise customers globally, reaching over 500 million people.
