Lenel’s OnGuard platform integrates with Everbridge’s Safety Connection software
Lenel and Everbridge have announced an alliance to interface their solutions. With the combination of Lenel’s OnGuard platform and Everbridge’s Safety Connection software, organizations will now be able to offer security management on-premises and off-premises — to help protect and notify employees, contractors or visitors during critical incidents regardless of their location.
With the Everbridge interface, system users can now aggregate data about severe weather, terrorism and other incidents and use last-known location data to locate potentially at-risk individuals and nearby first responders, and enable two-way communication.
Safety Connection’s ability to actively collect, assess and respond to events from OnGuard and external data inputs “provides users with a real global view of their environment and potential threats to their workforce”, the company says. The solution also offers panic button functionality through a mobile application that employees can use to send a geo-tagged SOS message to their security team when they are in distress.
“With an increasingly mobile workforce, distributed teams and large campuses, organizations cannot rely on physical and perimeter security alone to keep people safe,” says Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. “The Lenel and Everbridge alliance showcases our commitment to transforming the traditional paradigm of physical security – by enabling customers to locate and assist people wherever they are—whether that is on or off the premises.”
Everbridge Safety Connection is available now through Lenel value added resellers worldwide.
