Resilience Rating. It’s All About Fragility, not Probability.

Transparent rating system

Resilience rating is a revolutionary, INDEPENDENT and TRANSPARENT internet-based rating system that allows users to perform an objective and reliable evaluation of the state of health of any business.

The hallmark of the service is that YOU perform the rating, NOT a third party that does not understand your business. This means you TRUST the results and can apply them to improve the business.

As the current crisis has shown, conventional probability-based means of risk rating are not suited for a complex and turbulent economy. They are also subjective. There is a pressing need to devise more modern, objective and science-based means of rating the state-of-health of a business. This is exactly what resilience rating is – a new way to look at a business. In turbulence, the concept of probability is replaced by fragility. The main problem with the concept of Probability of Default is that it fails to address the consequences of default. This, of course, is very difficult. A tine change is the Probability of Default may mean a large change in rating. The goal of a resilience rating is different. The focus is on pinpointing the sources of fragility within a business or a process. In highly complex businesses or processes this is not easy to accomplish with conventional analytics.

Resilience rating delivers new and crucial information about a business:

  • A measure of business resilience
  • Sources of business risk
  • Interactive Business Structure Map – a unique representation of the structure of your company
  • Early-warnings of increasing exposure

When performed on a monthly or quarterly basis Resilience rating  gives you early insight into risks and changes in risk levels that affect your business performance. This gives you time to address those risks BEFORE THEY REACH CRITICAL LEVELS and harm your business.




Established originally in 2005 in the USA, Ontonix is a technology company headquartered in Como, Italy. The unusual technology and solutions developed by Ontonix focus on countering what most threatens safety, advanced products, critical infrastructures, or IT network security - the rapid growth of complexity. In 2007 the company received recognition by being selected as Gartner's Cool Vendor. What makes Ontonix different from all those companies and research centers who claim to manage complexity is that we have a complexity metric. This means that we MEASURE complexity. We detect anomalies in complex defense systems without using Machine Learning for one very good reason: our clients don’t have the luxury of multiple examples of failures necessary to teach software to recognize them. We identify anomalies without having seen them before. Sometimes, you must get it right the first and only time!
