BURLINGTON, Mass., September 7, 2021 — Everbridge, Inc.

As reported by the Wall Street Journal, senior executives and staff alike face increased physical threats amid the COVID-19 pandemic, prompting many security teams to seek out more effective ways to protect employees.

In addition to helping organizations safeguard their employees, Everbridge also remains the top choice among many leading security protection firms to help safeguard dignitaries, athletes, performers, and other VIPs.
“During my time leading national intelligence with the FBI, I have seen first-hand how digital and physical crises impact individuals and organizations,” said Tracy Reinhold, Everbridge Chief Security Officer, and former head of the FBI’s Intelligence Division. “Today, we are experiencing a sea change in the security industry through the use of technology that digitally transforms how organizations use risk intelligence for the protection of employees, government officials, dignitaries, or for any individual in harm’s way. Everbridge’s People & Life Safety Critical Event Management solution empowers organizations to fulfill their duty of care obligations through real-time risk assessments and hyper-local data leveraged to quickly automate the response to all types of critical events.”
