Everbridge has launched COVID-19 Shield, a new set of Coronavirus Protection Solutions designed to protect the safety of employees and customers, maintain business operations, safeguard supply chains and reduce costs and liabilities stemming from the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic, the company announced on Monday

“Everbridge works with thousands of organizations to help them protect their people and their operations. In one week alone, our customers sent more than 30 million coronavirus communications using our platform, a testament to the need for accurate and real-time information in a quickly evolving situation,” said Claudia Dent, SVP of Product Marketing at Everbridge.

Everbridge’s COVID-19 packages will mitigate the impact of coronavirus by leveraging the company’s industry-leading CEM platform to help organizations identify their risks, safeguard their workforce and manage disruptions to their operations and supply chain. 

COVID-19 Shield will offer three new out-of-the-box solutions to help organizations. The individual offerings include Know Your Risks through COVID-19 alerts correlated to an organization’s locations. 

The solution will provide pandemic Situation Reports developed from the world’s largest vetted database of risk data, derived from machine learning analysis of over 22,000 data sources from 175+ countries and validated by a 24/7 team of analysts monitoring local verified sources. 

In addition, COVID-19 Shield will offer “Protect Your People” to manage critical response plans and automate communications with impacted people, responders, leadership and other stakeholders. Protect Your People correlates a specialized Everbridge-developed threat feed on incidences of the coronavirus with the previously visited, last known and expected location of people to help businesses understand the risks and take appropriate actions. 

The solution will provide “Protect Your Operations and Supply Chains” by correlating alerts to physical assets including offices and facilities, production plants, suppliers and supply chain routes, in addition to people. The section will pinpoint potential impacts to your assets and production resources, initiating standard operating procedures to quickly resolve issues.

The COVID-19 Shield packages will also provide access to the Everbridge Data Sharing Private Network, which enables customers to share information publicly or privately. A business, for example, can share information with local government agencies and healthcare facilities to gain more local situation intelligence and to better coordinate response activities.

“As the CEM leader for almost 20 years, Everbridge is uniquely positioned to meet this need and to provide highly relevant information to help understand and mitigate the impacts of this global outbreak,” said Rebecca Scorzato, Partner at leading specialist risk consultancy, Control Risks.
