Jersey City, NJ (February 1, 2006) - Comodo Inc., a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions for the Internet, was recently named to Info Security Product Guide's "Hot Companies" for 2006. Info Security, the world's leading publication on security-related products and technologies, selected Comodo from more than 600 companies world-wide, recognizing Comodo's Trust Assurance solutions and its commitment to a more secure Internet.
The Hot Companies Award is being given to distinguished information security companies demonstrating success with the "4 Ps", Products, People, Performance and Potential, to inform end-users about the protective solutions available to defeat the next generation of highly sophisticated and blended online attacks. Comodo's commitment to ensuring trust on the Internet through its suite of highly effective products, dedication to protecting online transactions for consumers and e-Merchants, and unmatched "white list" approach to defeating phishing scams and viruses made it a perfect candidate for the award.
"Comodo has the expertise in identity encryption, verification and authentication services," said Rick Justice, chief editor of the Info Security Product Guide. "The need for these services will continue to rise as both e-commerce expands and hackers and attackers become more sophisticated and aggressive with their plans."
One example of Comodo's proprietary approach is its See, Verify, Trust (SVT) technology, which enables consumers to interact with online businesses with a higher level of transparency by simply downloading a free verification tool that ensures risk-free transactions. Through the use of Comodo Content Verification Certificate (CVCs), e-Merchants can prove to users the authenticity of their Web page content, facilitating a much higher level of trust and, ultimately, more transactions. SVT, as well as Comodo's host of other solutions, all contribute to the company's mission of creating Identity and Trust Assurance on the Internet by defeating security attacks before they happen.
"We are honored to receive the Hot Company award in recognition of Comodo's proactive stance against phishing scams and identity theft," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO of Comodo. "In an age of Internet dependency, Comodo is taking great measures to lead the charge on protecting our most valuable digital information and bringing trust back to e-Business."
The Comodo companies provide the infrastructure that is essential in enabling e-merchants, other Internet-connected companies, software companies, and individual consumers to interact and conduct business via the Internet safely and securely. The Comodo companies offer PKI SSL, Code Signing, Content Verification and Email Certificate; award winning PC Security software; Vulnerability Scanning services for PCI Compliance; secure e-mail and fax services.
Continual innovation, a core competence in PKI, and a commitment to reversing the growth of Internet-crime distinguish the Comodo companies as vital players in the Internet's ongoing development. Comodo secures and authenticates online transactions and communications for over 200,000 business customers and 3,000,000 users of our desktop security products.
