About Parametrix Insurance

  • What is Parametrix Insurance all about?+-

    Today businesses depend on third-party technologies such as cloud computing, web applications, and other platforms to function. These critical services also represent the fastest-growing risk for companies, and mitigating external service risk is crucial. Our policies protect businesses from the next generation of catastrophic events with simple, transparent insurance. We create innovative parametric claim-less insurance for SaaS, PaaS and IaaS downtime.
    Technology-dependent businesses live and breathe for uptime and must deliver high availability products in today's demanding environment. No third-party service provider guarantees 100% uptime. Even with 99.9% guaranteed uptime, downtime still happens, damaging your business in many ways. Our goal is to hedge the downtime risks that are out of your control with a simple insurance policy that enables you to secure your revenue stream and bounce back quickly fast after a downtime event.

    About Path
  • How is your product different?+-

    Most existing insurance policies don't cover external service downtime. If they do, the policies come with high deductibles and restrictive exclusions. We've created a complete insurance product to hedge your external downtime risk for your mission-critical services. Our policies are based on extensive analysis using the most granular data available in the market.
    Claims and underwriting processes are incredibly costly, leaving only a small portion of the premium available to cover losses. That makes coverage unaffordable for most businesses unless they can tolerate a long waiting period of at least 8 hours. We allow you to define a waiting period and set additional parameters that make sense for your business.
    By using a parametric insurance model, automating the underwriting process, and eliminating the investigative claims process, we create affordable policies with no deductibles or restrictions.

  • Who backs you?+-

    We're proud to be backed by Lloyd's, the world's leading marketplace for insurance and reinsurance.

  • What is Parametric Insurance?+-

    Parametric insurance is an insurance model used to offer protection against losses that are hard for insurance companies to insure. Parametric products ensure that claims are paid fast without the need for a traditional claims process. This eliminates claims costs and provides a transparent, affordable, and reliable policy.
