Everbridge Recognized as a Leader in Leading Analyst Firm's Magic Quadrant for Emergency/Mass Notification

Everbridge's Visionary Interactive Communications Platform Enables Organizations to Communicate and Effectively Manage Incidents of Any Scale

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2012) - Everbridge, Inc., the world's recognized leader in incident notification and management solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Everbridge as a "Leader" in the Magic Quadrant for U.S. Emergency/Mass Notification Services report.(1) The report provides guidance for organizations that are looking to implement Emergency/Mass Notification services to protect their most important assets. It positions vendors based upon their completeness of vision and ability to execute.

"We have strived to establish ourselves as a market visionary and we view our Magic Quadrant Leader's position as confirmation of Everbridge's leadership status in providing emergency and mass notification services," said Jaime Ellertson, Chief Executive Officer, Everbridge. "Working closely with our customers, we have developed a vision for empowering organizations to communicate with their stakeholders on any device, throughout the incident lifecycle, to protect their most important assets. Everbridge's visionary approach led to the development of the industry's first elastic infrastructure model, as well as our recently expanded portfolio of mobile applications that can manage a significant portion of the incident response process."

"Mobile technology has become a critical delivery method for EMNS. In fact, key recovery personnel -- BCM managers, crisis and incident managers, and event commanders -- are already equipped with smartphones and tablets, and will be coming to the crisis with these devices," wrote Roberta J. Witty wrote in the January 2012 Gartner report titled The Emergency or Mass Notification Service Market: Now and for the Next Five Years. "As a result, being able to perform outbound messaging from the smartphone or tablet device is a basic requirement in 2011. In 2012 and beyond, EMNS on a mobile device will take EMNS well beyond messaging and into emergency management operations and situational awareness of overall recovery management."
