MetricStream has announced that it is integrating its Business Continuity Management App with the Everbridge Unified Critical Communications platform to provide users with an integrated communication management capability that supports the end-to-end disaster recovery process.

The MetricStream Business Continuity Management App provides users with an advanced system to manage end-to-end business continuity and disaster recovery plans, including analysing the impact of business continuity risks, creating and testing business continuity plans, and managing all related disaster recovery activities. The App connects BCM programmes and processes with an enterprise risk management framework to ensure a risk-centric and data-driven approach is used to manage business continuity and disaster recovery efforts.

“Today’s modern, global and highly networked organisations require the most advanced technologies to support real-time business critical communications,” said Vasant Balasubramanian, vice president of Product Management at MetricStream. “In the face of disaster, the ability to coordinate business continuity and disaster recovery activities both globally as well as locally is a top priority. By leveraging the integrated MetricStream BCM App and Everbridge Unified Communication platform, users will be able to more simply and accurately communicate key business recovery steps and notifications.”

“This is a dynamic partnership that will provide customers with streamlined access to cloud and mobile apps for both GRC and critical communications,” said Imad Mouline, CTO of Everbridge. “We’re excited to deliver this powerful combination to enable corporations to improve risk management, business continuity and enterprise notification in the face of evolving cyber-attacks, IT outages and other security incidents.”

The MetricStream Business Continuity App and Everbridge Unified Critical Communications platform supports real-time risk-based decision-making, protects reputation, and enables organisations to achieve greater resiliency by reaching the right people, at the right time, on their preferred device.
