Comodo and Northwoods Partnership Brings Zero-Day Attack Protection to Twin Cities Marketplace
Clifton, NJ – November 17, 2020 – Comodo, the world’s leader of next-generation cybersecurity announced a partnership with Northwoods, a Managed Services Provider (MSP) operating out of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
“We chose Comodo because we needed the ability to sell high-end endpoint protection to our client base. In the ever-evolving world of cybersecurity, it is the MSP’s fiduciary duty to provide defense systems that counter zero-day attacks without breaking the bank,” said Kevin Fafinski, Northwoods CEO. He continued, “We looked into SentinelOne, but Comodo’s platform is the most sophisticated endpoint protection suite that I have come across. It is priced fairly and runs smoothly on the end user’s machine.”
Northwoods will offer Comodo’s Dragon platform with advanced endpoint protection (AEP), which is a complete cloud-native framework that delivers a zero-trust architecture to protect and defend endpoints. Its patent-pending auto containment technology has active breach protection that neutralizes ransomware, malware and cyber-attacks. The auto containment runs an unknown executable in a kernel API virtualized mode, thereby offering attack surface reduction (ASR) which neutralizes ransomware attacks. The Dragon Platform also utilizes a Default Deny security posture with Default Allow usability to provide a most comprehensive protection against zero-day threats, while having no impact on end-user experience or workflows.
In addition, Comodo’s Valkyrie analyzes and gives a trusted verdict for every file – no other company will analyze and give trusted verdict for 100% of files on a network. Comodo’s platform shares intelligence between every component of the platform and is therefore more secure than disparate products that claim best of breed but don’t share information.
Alan Knepfer, President and Chief Revenue Office at Comodo said, “This partnership gives Northwoods the confidence that they are protecting their clientele with the most sophisticated endpoint protection suite available. Protecting their customers from breaches and data loss are the most important benefits this brings to their business.”
