ProfileFounded in 2002, Everbridge began as a response to the terror attacks of 9/11, a national emergency that left America wondering how to best communicate in moments of extreme urgency. The company has built the industry’s most reliable and scalable emergency notification engine, which is now used by both businesses and governmental organizations in times of public safety threats. With Everbridge, agencies can send alerts via telephone, email, and text messages in real-time, as well as stop alerts when read.
Its Critical Event Management platform helps manage critical events as they occur, assessing risks as they move geographically. Utilizing modern communication technologies like geotagging, emergency managers can use their app to respond and adapt as incidents occur. Everbridge has already provided crucial services during crises such as natural disasters, active-shooter situations, and civil unrest.
With offices in Pasadena, California and Burlington, Massachusetts, Everbridge covers emergency management alerts for over 5000 businesses, agencies, and municipalities. Its overall reach extends to over 550 million people across more than 200 countries, delivering on its promise to keep businesses running and people safe. Led by Executive Chairman Jamie Ellertson, the critical communications company has a market cap of $4.5 billion.
