With its holistic approach towards critical events, Everbridge will enhance Siemens’ capabilities to rapidly pinpoint threats and automate response to avoid costly impact, whether it’s the ongoing pandemic, cyber attacks, an IT outage, severe weather, workplace violence or any number of critical events that impact life safety, business assets, the supply chain or the brand.
