Share:

Everbridge,
Inc. (NASDAQ:EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and
enterprise safety software applications to help keep people safe and
businesses running, today announced it has achieved a FedRAMP Agency
Authorization for its Everbridge Suite solution. FedRAMP
(Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) is a government-wide
program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment,
authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.

"Our FedRAMP initiative has been a multi-year, strategic project with
the goal of expanding our overall addressable market for our broad
Critical Event Management suite," said Jaime Ellertson, chairman and CEO
of Everbridge. "Meeting the stringent security and reliability standards
for FedRAMP Authorization not only demonstrates our commitment to the
Federal market but will also benefit commercial organizations that
require the highest levels of security."

Authorized by the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO), Everbridge is
now officially listed on the FedRAMP
Marketplace
 – the central, online portal of approved cloud service
offerings available for federal government use. Everbridge's sponsoring
agency, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), and Third Party
Assessment Organization (3PAO), Coalfire, have determined that
Everbridge has met the standards for the 325 controls in the FedRAMP
Moderate baseline. FedRAMP Authorization certifies that Everbridge has
passed the rigorous security and risk management review process required
to offer its Everbridge Suite solution to federal agencies, a mandate by OMB
for any cloud service provider that serves the federal government.

Everbridge currently supports the operational resilience needs of more
than 40 federal
agencies
including the Department of Defense, the Department of
Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Social Security
Administration. Everbridge's FedRAMP Authorization broadens the
company's ability to further proliferate its cloud-based platform for
the management of critical events in the federal sector.

In addition to joining an elite group of cloud and SaaS providers that
have achieved FedRAMP Authorization, Everbridge helps ensure its
customers operate in a secure environment that complies with a wide
array of industry standards and regulations including SSAE 18/ISAE-3402
SOC 2 and SOC3, GDPR and Privacy Shield. Everbridge has also been
certified and designated as an approved technology by the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security under the SAFETY Act (Support
Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology).

"With this important milestone, we are focused on extending our
leadership in critical event management, providing government agencies
with the industry's most scalable and reliable platform to rapidly
respond to – and even avoid – sudden, unexpected disruptions, while
protecting those who serve our nation each and every day," continued
Ellertson.

FedRAMP is designed to save time and costs associated with security
assessments of cloud service providers among federal government
organizations. Taking a "do once, use many" approach, FedRAMP enables
rapid and cost-effective procurement of information systems and
services, eliminates duplicate assessment efforts, and ensures
consistent application of information security standards across all
government organizations.
