Everbridge Helps Florida Communities Share Critical Safety Information During Hurricane Irma

Over 20 Million Irma-Related Messages Successfully Sent through Everbridge Critical Event Management Platform

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running faster, successfully supported the State of Florida and affected local, national and international businesses’ preparation, warning and response activities surrounding Hurricane Irma. The Everbridge platform was used to send over 20 million messages to support efforts around Irma. In Florida, the statewide emergency notification program, AlertFlorida, is powered by Everbridge and managed by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM). Through this agency’s leadership and vision, more than 85 percent of Florida’s 67 counties across the state have deployed Everbridge’s critical event management platform. During Irma, the Everbridge system was used by these communities, as well as by those in nearby states, and by global businesses with affected employees and operations, to share safety information, weather updates, sheltering instructions and evacuation directions throughout the course of the storm. Over the course of that same period, Everbridge’s other customers sent more than 50 million messages to contacts all over the world unrelated to Hurricane Irma activities. In preparation for the storm, the state of Florida promoted the keyword, FLPREPARES, to residents, visitors and family members, asking them to text it to 888-777, which would automatically sign them up for critical information and safety alerts powered by Everbridge. Over the course of the storm the number of individuals receiving alerts grew to over 900,000 total opt-ins, with over 600,000 sign-ups during this period. In addition, the City of Tampa promoted opt-ins with keywords in both English and Spanish, which added over 64,000 to the total number of people receiving alerts. “Natural disasters such as Hurricanes Irma and Harvey remind us all just how important it is to be prepared to share safety information and instructions with residents when the worst happens,” added Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. “Reliability and scalability of critical communications are essential during such events, both for individuals at risk and for organizations to address disruptions to their business operations.” Everbridge assisted local officials through its Florida-based Technical Account Manager, as well as from its 24x7 Global Operations Center in Burlington, Mass., where the team closely tracked the hurricane throughout its duration and ensured that full support was available without a decrease in response times. View the Everbridge Hurricane Irma Infographic to learn more about the company’s activities during the storm. Now that the storm has subsided and cleanup efforts have begun, the state of Florida has released an updated keyword – FLRESPONDS – which will share relevant information with residents about how to safely undertake the cleanup and where they can access services and assistance. Residents can text that keyword to 888-777 to receive those updates. If you are interested in donating to the relief efforts for Hurricane Irma, you can consider donating to organizations such as UNICEFGlobalGiving’s Irma Relief Fund, the Direct Impact Fund or the American Red Cross.

Everbridge Wins 2017 ASIS Accolades’ “Security’s Best” Award

Safety Connection Solution Recognized for its Dynamic Location-based Alerting Capabilities

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(Business Wire)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running faster, today announced that Safety Connection has been named a winner in the 2017 ASIS Accolades Security’s Best Award Competition. The ASIS Accolades Competition honors the top new security technology products that will be showcased at the 63rd Annual ASIS International Seminar from September 25 to 28 in Dallas, TX, where the company will have a significant presence. Safety Connection, a key application of the Everbridge Critical Event Management™ platform, is used by leading global organizations such as Sanofi, Rackspace, Hulu and NVIDIA. Where traditional emergency notification and physical security solutions focus on a person’s static home or work address, the Safety Connection solution utilizes multiple methods to dynamically locate, notify and instruct individuals based upon where they actually are, or are traveling to. When deployed, security professionals can leverage integrations to aggregate near real-time location data from multiple sources, including building access control systems such as Lenel and travel management systems like International SOS, to send notifications to targeted individuals and employees who might be in dangerous situations, based on their dynamic “last known” or “expected” location. At the event, Everbridge will highlight Safety Connection’s newest capability, Private Incident Zones™, at booth 1101. The Private Incident Zones functionality automatically sends multi-modal alerts to people who enter a geo-fenced area during an active event. Everbridge will also highlight new integrations between Everbridge Visual Command Center and Incident Management modules of the Critical Event Management platform which are designed to help our customers gain better visibility, increase management control and reduce costs and disruptions. “An increasing number of large organizations are taking accountability for their global employees as they travel domestically and internationally on a daily basis,” said Imad Mouline, CTO and GM, Critical Event Management, Everbridge. “While the historic market for corporate security and safety solutions has been focused on establishing perimeters, the Safety Connection solution offers an innovative response to the dramatic shift towards an increasingly mobile workforce where employees spend less time in traditional offices. We look forward to sharing our continued commitment to the Critical Event Management market at one of the most comprehensive security events in the world.” Winners of the 2017 ASIS Accolades Competition will be presented their awards at Tuesday’s keynote address on September 26 at 8:30 a.m. CT.

Everbridge IT Alerting Enables Rapidly Growing Number of Enterprises to Resolve IT Incidents Faster, Minimizing Business Impact

Number of Customers Leveraging Operational Response Automation Solution to Improve and Scale IT Communications and Collaboration Doubles in Past Nine Months

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ:EVBG), a global software company that provides critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, continues to help enterprises around the globe minimize the impact of IT incidents with its IT Alerting™ solution. By leveraging IT Alerting’s automated response capabilities, companies of all sizes have achieved faster IT incident resolution through the improved communication, collaboration and decision-analytics that result from more efficient workflow-based processes.
Need for Incident Response Automation Solutions Has Never Been More Pressing In today’s digital world, across all industries, almost every business transaction is processed via computer applications or mobile apps. IT teams around the world must be prepared to respond to service disruptions and interruptions at a moment’s notice. Incidents are different in nature, ranging from data center outages, application failures, website slowdowns, cyber-attacks, data breaches and distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks. As a result, business critical application downtime has become a bigger nightmare for most organizations. A recent Everbridge survey shows that the average cost of downtime is $8,662 per minute, and companies take 27 minutes on average to engage the right team of responders. Everbridge’s experience with customers who have automated the IT response process shows that companies could reduce this average time to 5 minutes or less, saving an average of $190,000 per major IT incident – and significantly improving worker productivity. “When major IT incidents happen, the time it takes to respond is critical,” said Vick Vaishnavi, General Manager of the IT Alerting and IoT Business Unit at Everbridge. “The right information has to get to the right people instantaneously, in order to expedite the response process. The faster the response, the less costly the incident ultimately is – and the more confident end users and customers will feel about service being restored soon.” Everbridge IT Alerting Customers Have Doubled in the Past Nine Months The number of customers using Everbridge’s IT Alerting solution continues to grow, doubling since November 2016. IT Alerting customers include: Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Choice Hotels, Digital Reality, Express Scripts, Ericsson, Facebook, Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and Xerox. Customers continually leverage IT Alerting to globally scale their IT response activities and minimize critical service and technology disruptions. IT Alerting offers the ability to coordinate response team groups, calendars and activities on a global scale, enabling faster time to incident awareness and resolutions, while also ensuring that employees and executives are kept informed of the incident status. Examples of customer value include:
  • A leading US based home improvement company has seen the average time to engage the IT response team reduced by 50 percent, from 6 minutes to 3 minutes.
  • A global financial service institution now has more than 11,500 IT resolvers, 3,324 groups and calendars under management in the system. It triages over 36,000 incidents each month. Since deploying IT Alerting, it has been able to streamline communications between team members and improved its SMS reach by 20 percent.
