BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM), today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) awarded Everbridge Patent No. 10,652,080 for its unique approach to “Systems and Methods for Providing a Notification System Architecture.” Everbridge’s portfolio now spans more than 160 patents, which underlie the proven extreme reliability, built-in system intelligence, data visualization, multi-modal alerting capabilities, and crisis management techniques of its Critical Event Management platform. More than 5,000 business, government, healthcare, and education organizations worldwide use Everbridge’s platform to manage critical events that threaten the safety of their people and the continuation of their operations, such as the coronavirus pandemic, active shooter situations, terrorist attacks, severe weather, supply chain disruptions, IT outages, cyber-attacks or other incidents.
The latest patent relates to the Everbridge Notification Engine, which is the central component in the company’s communication solutions responsible for delivery of all messages for its Critical Event Management platform. The innovation allows the Everbridge system to reliably send large volumes of messages across multiple channels with high throughput and low latency.
“Everbridge invested over $150 million in research and development in recent years to bring extraordinary scalability and innovation to our Critical Event Management platform and its underlying technology,” said Imad Mouline, Chief Technology Officer, Everbridge. “We have the broadest portfolio of patents focused on this industry and continue to innovate in order to help our customers meet increasingly complex challenges, such as those presented by the coronavirus pandemic.”
As the global leader in critical event management and public warning, Everbridge and its platform reach over 550 million people across the world while serving leading Fortune 500 companies as well as cities, states, and entire countries. As a growing number of organizations relied on Everbridge to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic, its newly patented Notification Engine handled several times the usual traffic on a sustained basis without outages or expanding cloud infrastructure.
In response to COVID-19, Everbridge quickly launched a coronavirus data feed which supplements its existing real-time risk intelligence based on 22,000 data sources across 175 countries. To date, the Everbridge platform has delivered over 400 million communications specific to coronavirus, and launched its COVID-19 Shield™ rapid deployment software templates to protect people and maintain operations amid the pandemic.
More recently, Everbridge introduced its COVID-19 “Return to Work” and Contact Tracing solutions to help customers manage the process of bringing back their people to offices and other public places, while mitigating the threat of coronavirus.
Everbridge also recently hosted its “Coronavirus: the Road to Recovery” virtual leadership summit, which brought together the best minds across public and private sectors, including C-level speakers from the The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Cleveland Clinic, U.S. Army, Accenture, Biogen, The NBA’s Boston Celtics, a former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioner and more.
