Jersey City, NJ, November 4 - Florida State University has made an important decision: to safeguard its computerized transactions with a secure socket layer ( SSL ) from Comodo CA Ltd.
Florida State University has been ranked #52 of the top universities worldwide in the 2008 Webometrics Ranking of World Universities. The ranking measures scientific communication of scholarly language. The measurement is based on formal and informal academic activity of professors and researchers as reflected by their Web presence.
Besides scholarly communications, a lot of sensitive information is transmitted in educational files: health, financial, disciplinary, and academic. With ubiquitous computers, users expect to be able to share this information rapidly. At the same time, they expect that the organizations will keep it safe from outside eyes.
Florida State University relies on Comodo SSL technology for encryption and transmission of its data.
"Comodo's digital certificates will help our students, faculty, alumni, and administrators communicate easily and securely," said, Joseph Lazor, FSU's Director of Information Resources Management and Security.
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.

Comodo secures and authenticates online transactions and communications for over 200,000 business customers and 3,000,000 users of our desktop security products.
