Everbridge Achieves German C5 Compliance Standard

Everbridge is only U.S.-based emergency notification provider to
obtain C5 accreditation for cloud operations

BURLINGTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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 that it has completed its assessment
for the Cloud Computing Compliance Controls Catalogue (C5) set out by
the Federal Office for Information Security in Germany, also known as Bundesamt
für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI)
. Everbridge is the
first and only U.S.-based emergency notification provider to
achieve BSI C5 attestation. This accreditation assures that the
Everbridge Critical
Event Management platform
has undergone a rigorous third-party audit
to ensure it complies with all security requirements defined by C5.

Everbridge’s commitment to applying the highest levels of compliance in
controls and security is shown by meeting the C5 standard that serves
not only as a benchmark for the German market, but also increasingly as
a measure for institutions across Europe and Asia. Using Everbridge’s C5
audit report, customers can effortlessly evaluate how legal regulations
(e.g. data privacy), their own policies, or the threat environment
relate to their use of the Everbridge platform.

Javier Colado, Senior Vice President, International at Everbridge,
commented, “Everbridge is fully committed to the highest standards in
all aspects of our operations no matter where that might be in the
world. We are proud to be the first U.S.-based critical event management
provider to meet the stringent C5 compliance requirements – something
that should increase the trust placed in us by our growing client base
not only in Germany, but also around the world.”

C5 is intended primarily for professional cloud service providers, and
their auditors and customers. It has 17 distinct control requirements
that cloud providers either have to comply with or meet defined minimum
standards. It is a required assessment for working with the public
sector in Germany and is increasingly being adopted by the private
sector.

In addition to obtaining C5 compliance – which covers the Everbridge
Critical Event Management platform both in the U.S. and EU – Everbridge
is also ISO 27001 certified and SSAE18 SOC 2/SOC 3 compliant. C5 is a
further seal of quality that underlines the commitment of Everbridge to
growing its presence around the world and ensuring that it always
operates at market-leading standards.
