Everbridge Offers Free Emergency Info Network for Organizations with People in Ukraine

Source: Everbridge

Everbridge is rolling out a free service to help organizations keep in touch with their people in war-torn Ukraine.

Everbridge has worked with Amazon Web Services’ cloud computing network to set up a communications platform that will provide a more robust alternative to the Ukrainian civilian telephone and Internet systems. The new platform will use an AWS data center based outside of Ukraine to collect and distribute information via voice, text messages, and e-mails. This data can then be shared with Ukrainian government departments and relief agencies to help them coordinate activities with workers on the ground. The service will also be available to for-profit businesses that need help evacuating or providing humanitarian aid to their employees.
