GLENDALE, Calif., June 10, 2014 —Everbridge, the worldwide leader in Unified Critical Communications, has extended its interoperability partnership with RSA, The Security Division of EMC, a leader in the enterprise governance, risk and compliance (GRC) market. The RSA Archer® Business Continuity Management solution is now engineered to leverage Everbridge’s Unified Critical Communication platform to deliver a scalable, comprehensive, and global system for crisis management and communications. Details of the compatibility will be formally shared during the upcoming 2014 RSA Archer GRC Summit, taking place June 10-12 in Phoenix, Ariz.
“When you make two industry-leading technologies interoperable, RSA Archer Business Continuity Management and Everbridge’s Critical Communications, you can bring business continuity, disaster recovery, crisis management, and emergency notifications together to better execute your plans and communicate more effectively during crisis situations,” said Patrick Potter, GRC Strategist, Business Continuity and Audit, RSA, The Security Division of EMC. “This significantly helps to minimize impact to your employees, customers, reputation, and business operations.”
Everbridge, RSA Combination Offers Customers Better Crisis Response
A critical component of an effective crisis management plan is the ability to quickly, efficiently, and accurately notify key resources, staff and stakeholders when the unexpected occurs. By working with Everbridge, RSA now extends the global reach of its business continuity solution, helping to ensure that employees, responders, and other key stakeholders are notified within moments of any crisis or business disruption. Additional benefits include:
• The ability to drive customized notifications on a global scale, across voice, SMS/text, and smartphone delivery paths directly from Archer to Everbridge.
• Improved compliance by helping business continuity teams test and meet response and recovery time objectives while identifying communication bottlenecks.
• Two-way communication helps identify resource needs, potential issues and better ensure the success of employee roll calls.
