QOMPLX Continues Global Expansion with Australian Catastrophe Risk Modeling Partnership

The COMBUS & QOMPLX partnership continues to expand the models, services, and datasets available in its cloud-native insurance risk analytics offering, Q:HELM

TYSONS, Va., June 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QOMPLX™, a global leader in cybersecurity & risk analytics, is proud to announce a partnership with Australian industry leader COMBUS to offer its models on the Q:HELM marketplace.  The addition of COMBUS adds further geographically diverse options to improve risk management around environmental disasters, as QOMPLX continues to broadly unify data, models and services offerings for the insurance industry.

“COMBUS is delighted to be able to bring our suite of Australian models to the Q:HELM platform to provide greater access within this open-source and transparent marketplace,” said Dr. Will Gardner, Managing Director at COMBUS.

These robust COMBUS models provide insight into natural and man-made disasters across Australia, ranging from bushfires to earthquakes. COMBUS built its simulation models to examine the magnitude of large events and the frequency of smaller events, providing greater understanding in estimating and predicting risk.

“The need for more rigorous and data-driven insights around environmental disasters around the world continues to grow. The COMBUS models allow our customers to increase their geographic coverage for trusted risk analytics,” said Steve Smith, Director of Product and Modeling at QOMPLX.

This robust offering for insurers is emblematic of QOMPLX’s unique role in risk analytics. We provide solutions to mitigate major long-term risks to capital and climate that are foundational to our modern global economy. The underlying capabilities of the QOMPLX core data factory fuel our cloud insurance risk analytics offering with the ability to rapidly ingest, transform and contextualize data at scale, much faster than traditionally seen across the industry.

“Our growing partnership with international innovators like COMBUS further expands QOMPLX’s offering of cutting-edge insurance data, services, and models. COMBUS’ choice to partner with QOMPLX is continued evidence of the pioneering work QOMPLX is pursuing to knit together disparate pieces of the insurance data analytics ecosystem,” said Jason Crabtree, CEO of QOMPLX.
