$18.7M PSIM Acquisition Examined (IDV / Everbridge)

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Feb 06, 2017

This may be the biggest deal for a PSIM developer ever. In a segment that has disappointed for more than a decade, a recent IPOed company has bought a PSIM provider.

IDV Solutions, the PSIM behind Microsoft's Domain Awareness System, has been acquired by Everbridge, a company specializing in notifications/messaging for critical event management. Everbridge paid $18.7M for IDV solutions, with the goal of using IDV's platform to further their strategy of building a critical event management system.

Everbridge CMO Joel Rosen offered insight about Everbridge, and how they are targeting the security industry with their platform.
