Olympus Corporation of the Americas Deploys Everbridge’s Critical Event Management Suite to Improve Risk Visualization, Preparation and Response
Visual Command Center Solution Delivers Real-time Threat Intelligence, Situational Awareness, and Integrated Response and Collaboration
BURLINGTON, Mass. – January 09, 2019 – Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety software applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced that Olympus Corporation of the Americas has selected Everbridge’s Critical Event Management (CEM) platform, including Visual Command Center, to establish a unified, common operating picture of organizational risk, while accelerating communication, response and recovery efforts to limit the impact on business operations.
Headquartered in Center Valley, Pennsylvania, Olympus Corporation of the Americas operates as a worldwide precision technology manufacturer. The company produces products in areas such as medical, surgical, life science imaging systems, industrial measurement, cameras, and audio products.
To support the company’s goal of ensuring safety and productivity for local, remote and traveling employees, as well as organizational resiliency and supply chain efficiency, Olympus Corporation of the Americas desired a solution that would enable the enterprise security team to better visualize, anticipate and manage risk events, disruptions and potential disasters. The organization selected Visual Command Center, part of the Everbridge Critical Event Management platform, to merge and display robust data sources regarding organizational assets (employees, travelers, buildings, supply chain) and risk events (crime, terrorism, natural disasters, weather, health risks, activism) into a highly visual common operating view. This will enable Olympus Corporation of the Americas to better assess threats, drive a coordinated response, avoid costs and impacts to life safety, while enabling the business to operate and grow despite these risks.
“Olympus Corporation of the Americas is committed to staying true to our employees by ensuring their safety. Our organization also demands an ability to execute and perform operationally in the face of global and local enterprise risk events,” said Kevin Thomas, Director, Enterprise Security Operations and Technology, Olympus Corporation of the Americas. “Visual Command Center will help us meet these requirements by enabling us to manage disasters and other disruptions by ‘looking around the corner, before the corner looks at us.’ In today’s environment, it is critical to have this proactive approach to risk management and security.”
In addition to supporting Olympus’ goal of keeping local and traveling employees safe, the Visual Command Center solution will also be used to account for any potential disruptions that might impact vendor management, product supply chains and routes. This will enable the organization to leverage the solution for both life safety and business optimization.
“We are excited to support Olympus Corporation of the Americas in their efforts to ensure organizational resiliency and employee safety,” said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. “We are committed to delivering a secure, reliable and innovative Critical Event Management platform that enables enterprise security and resiliency teams to deliver value and safety to their global teams.”
