Protecting Those Who Protect Us
Intrusion Detection for Critical Communications

Everbridge is the world’s recognized leader in incident notification systems, merging technology with industry expertise to help millions of people communicate in a crisis, manage operational incidents, and connect on a daily basis. Organizations in more than 100 countries—including Salesforce.com, AirTran Airways, the American Red Cross, and Virginia Tech—rely on Everbridge for their emergency notification and day-to-day communication needs.

The Challenge

Senior Manager of Technology Operations, Doug Dearing, and his team of IT professionals manage a complex network of over 150 servers located in four datacenters in the United States and Canada. Everbridge’s datacenters contain millions of contact records for customers in more than 100 countries, so ensuring the security of their data is a top priority for Dearing and his team.

Security audits identified the need to enhance Everbridge’s intrusion detection system (IDS) capability to provide a more robust means to detect threats and eliminate vulnerabilities. “Our Tech Ops team is responsible for ensuring the security and availability of advanced computing resources that facilitate incident notification worldwide,” Dearing said. “Maintaining the security of the network and ensuring that our internal and external clients have reliable access to our network is a major responsibility.”
