BURLINGTON, Mass., January 4, 2020 — Everbridge, Inc.

“Throughout 2020, Everbridge helped thousands of global C-level and government leaders respond to and mitigate record storms, cyberattacks, supply chain, and business disruptions, and more, all during the ‘black swan’ event of our lifetime – a coronavirus pandemic,” said Scott Burnett, Senior Vice President of Operations at Everbridge. “The events of this past year show, more than ever, that organizations benefit from a holistic, automated way to respond to crises of all kinds, so they can maintain revenue-generating activities, while safeguarding employees and business assets. Everbridge continues to lead by example, innovating to make our platform an increasingly powerful resource for our customers.”
