InternetPerils, Inc. offers products for Internet Business Risk Management. Building on its GAIN (Gap Analysis of Internet Networks) data fusion platform and its PerilScope™ visualization of topology and performance, InternetPerils, Inc. provides automated and interactive products delivered through the web, plus training and professional services. These products and services can inform the most sophisticated and demanding Internet Risk Management requirements.

Many Internet risks outside the firewall cannot be eliminated by any single enterprise, not even using traditional Internet risk management strategies such as security and performance solutions, yet such risks have grown too large and frequent to be accepted. InternetPerils, Inc. extends Internet business risk management strategies into insurance, reinsurance, capital withholding, and hedge instruments such as catastrophe bonds and performance bonds. Such economic derivatives augment customer in-house finanical expertise in turning Internet volatility into a manageable and, as importantly, a securitizable risk.

Selected InternetPerils product features for specific industries:

Firms that use the Internet have rapidly increasing operational exposures. Traditional Internet performance and security attempt to accept or eliminate risks. Those strategies are no longer enough in the face of risks that have grown beyond gales of occasional viruses to cyber-hurricanes of mixed worms, viruses, and spam, plus power outages, cable cuts, routing flaps, and terrorist attacks. InternetPerils extends the strategies available for Internet risk by enabling further strategies such as hedge, insure, or self-insure that are already in use by electric utilities, municipalities, and derivatives markets.
