The Everbridge Digital Operations Platform includes many powerful new capabilities to help organizations rapidly assess digital service interruptions, act quickly to mitigate these issues, and continuously improve processes and services.
It also addresses organizations’ IT Ops, Security Ops & Cyber, DevOps, Infrastructure Ops, Customer Support, and Major Incident Management (MIM) needs to keep operations running, safeguard revenue, and enhance enterprise operational resilience by managing digital and physical critical events through a single pane of glass.

Everbridge Takes Platinum in 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program
American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and now in its Sixth Year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.
Best Federal Government Security Program
Everbridge Critical Event Management software solutions powers JARVISS, the U.S. DoD’s enterprise system for threat visibility so crisis teams can coordinate all response activities, teams, and resources to accelerate recovery times and maintain command and control when crises evolve into unanticipated scenarios.
JARVISS provides federal agencies one platform where senior leaders, antiterrorism officers, law enforcement personnel, and emergency managers can identify relevant threats, gain context around each threat to understand its importance, identify all assets that could be affected, and act to avoid or mitigate the impact of a risk event.
The Joint Analytic Real-Time Virtual Information Sharing System (JARVISS) primarily focuses on anti-terrorism and other security threats such as active shooters and natural disasters that might affect DoD operations.
The US Army and over 70 federal agencies are supported by the Everbridge CEM platform, and since the outbreak of COVID-19, JARVISS also provides support for ongoing threat analysis of the pandemic, giving Army commanders and other DoD users critical insight into the impact of COVID-19 to global operations across 400 military locations in 70 Countries.
