Indemnification assurance for community edition open source

Filed under
OSS

Bristol-based LinuxIT is launching an indemnification programme to underwrite community-based open source software. The company claims to be able to provide organisations with a "guarantee and assurance at zero risk", no less.

This arguably somewhat questionable claim is achieved by LinuxIT's process of "verifying open source software" by running it through an accreditation process.

The programme which is backed by an as yet unnamed "leading" global insurance-based financial services provider and a LinuxIT Service Level Agreement (SLA), which the company says enables LinuxIT to fix or replace software that does not work as expected. Cover to the value of £5m is provided.
