Companies to provide Critical Event Management as a Service

Milpitas, CA and Burlington, MA, April 15, 2020 —Northland Controls, the operator of the world’s largest privately held and commercially operated Global Security Operations Center as a Service (GSOC aaS), announced today a new managed service offering powered by Everbridge (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM).

Northland Controls CEO Pierre Trapanese says, “We have been looking for the right solution to offer clients a reliable and efficient CEM service, and we’re excited to partner with the industry leader and pioneer of CEM – Everbridge. This offering will deliver robust critical event management and threat intelligence to our clients all over the world as a managed service. We see this as a powerful new offering in the managed services landscape for those companies who simply don’t want the burden and investment of building and managing their own GSOC and full-scale security operations. Mid-market companies can now have the same powerful security stance, infrastructure, and operations as companies with tens of thousands of employees and millions of dollars in security investment.”

Everbridge delivers one common enterprise-wide operating platform to aggregate risk data, locate people and assets under threat, initiate action and manage incidents, and analyze after-action performance. This allows organizations to rapidly pinpoint threats and automate response to avoid costly impact—whether it’s the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, an IT outage, severe weather, workplace violence, or any number of critical events that impact life safety, business assets, supply chain or brand.

Zach Henderson, Northland Controls Director of Managed Services says, “Using the Everbridge platform, our GSOC aaS can now offer clients an optimized response by orchestrating all crisis activities, teams, resources and communications in one application. Responders in the field, operators in the GSOC, and executives anywhere in the world can access and view a coordinated response plan and status update. The recent coronavirus outbreak has showcased the comprehensive accuracy and timeliness of Everbridge’s threat intelligence. Their risk intelligence situation reports provide specific and actionable information on the outbreak and the Everbridge platform can be used across all phases of an incident, from preparation to alerting to follow up and recovery, helping to assist in locating travelers in areas potentially affected by the coronavirus, as well as potential threats to customers’ supply chains. We’re excited to partner with Everbridge to deliver this world-class level of service to our clients.”

Tom Meusel, Everbridge Vice President, Global Partnerships and Alliances says, “Northland Controls is a market leader and an important partner as we expand our Critical Event Management ecosystem. Their global reach and GSOC aaS offering will help fill a gap for potential customers who want the power of threat intelligence and visibility that the Everbridge platform offers but lack the GSOC infrastructure to optimize the intelligence and response management capabilities.”

Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, Everbridge’s customers have used the CEM platform to send over 115 million virus-related communications and leveraged the platform for rapid response and team coordination.  Everbridge has launched a series of actions to address the coronavirus, including providing daily updates on its Coronavirus Preparedness Hub.
