SSL is launched and is set to quickly become a driving force in fast, cost effective SSL Certificates for the mass market

Kent, UK, 18 March 2002. Comodo, the Internet security specialist, have launched InstantSSL - a fast track and cost effective SSL Certificate service. InstantSSL is one of the growing number of X.509 digital certificate based products available through the Comodo Certification Authority (CA), joining both standard SSL Certificates and TrustToolbar Certificates in the Comodo certificate portfolio.

InstantSSL Certificates are guaranteed to be the most cost effective 128bit SSL certificates available today. At only P.O.A. for 1 year, and multiyear options of P.O.A. for 2 years and P.O.A. for 3 years, InstantSSL Certificates are a fraction of the price of comparable certificates from other CAs. Being technically identical to certificates issued by other CAs, InstantSSL Certificates are a new driving force in the widespread availability and affordability of SSL security for web servers.

The fast turnaround on an InstantSSL Certificate application is achieved through ready and direct access to the TrustToolbar directory - the largest directory on the web. Company and website validation processes and policies are already operational for the TrustToolbar system, allowing Comodo to leverage its investment in the directory for other certificate applications. This unique resource allows the majority of certificate applications to be processed in minutes rather than days.

The recent partnership with GlobalSign, the Brussels based CA, ensures that the Comodo root certificate is widely trusted by the majority of Internet users. All Internet Explorer 5.01 and above and Netscape 4.7 and above browser users will already inherently trust InstantSSL Certificates.

Comodo has also launched standard SSL Certificates available at P.O.A., P.O.A. and P.O.A. for 1 year, 2 years and 3 years validity period respectively. These SSL Certificates comprise a full $10,000 warranty for complete commercial peace of mind.

As a promotional offer, Comodo is packaging PremiumSSL certificates with TrustToolbar Merchant Suite at no additional cost for the PremiumSSL Certificate. This allows online merchants to purchase an industry standard SSL Certificate, as well as the TrustToolbar Merchant Suite (TMS), for the single price of only P.O.A.. This makes the TMS promo package the most cost effective means of buying SSL (plus all other fantastic TMS benefits) available in the industry today!
