GrowthPoint Acted as Exclusive Financial Advisor to CNL Software on its Acquisition by Everbridge


CNL Software is the leading global provider of physical security information management (PSIM) platform software.

Burlington, MA – Everbridge, the global leader in critical event management (CEM) will broaden its support for PSIM and IoT applications for corporate, government and healthcare organizations and enhance Everbridge’s enterprise risk management approach with the acquisition of CNL Software.

The Everbridge CEM platform will feature a new IoT extension module that will leverage the technology of CNL Software, enabling organisations to gather a broader range of situational intelligence and automate targeted responses throughout their entire safety, security, and operational continuum from across a global footprint to within campuses and facilities.

“The CEM platform monitors threat data streams continuously, alerts stakeholders when there is a relevant issue, and automatically orchestrates a coordinated response—it is always on,” said Imad Mouline CTO of Everbridge.

With the number of IoT devices expected to approach 75 billion by 2025, the Everbridge CEM platform enables organisations to utilise vast amounts of electronic data, including IoT sensors, to digitally transform how customers manage safety and security. The CNL transaction will enhance Everbridge’s technology growth strategy and expansion outside the United States. 

With the team led by Anson Kwan, Growthpoint acted as the sole financial advisor to CNL Software.
