Comodo announces partnership with Blacknight Solutions to provide secure web hosting

New York - 23rd Sept. 2004Comodo, the internet security specialists, today announced that it entered into partnership with Blacknight Internet Solutions to provide cPanel on the most Secure Linux distribution available in today's market.

Blacknight Solutions is a 100% Irish owned company specializing in serving the hosting and co-location needs of business, both large and small. All servers are based in Ireland's premier Data center - The Data Electronics Group in Clondalkin, Dublin. As a company it constantly seeks to lead the way by introducing innovative solutions for its client base. It was one of the first Irish hosting companies to offer virus and content filtering to its clients in 2002. By partnering with innovative companies, Blacknight Solutions is able to bring 'best of breed' technologies to the Irish market, while maintaining an aggressive pricing model.

Trustix Operating System offers a very crisp and clean distribution which meets all the enterprise needs without the need to wade through all the packages and services your server doesn't require. Typically, a minimum install is about 100MB and contains around 180 server targeted packages. It is the most stable, secure and efficient Linux distribution available.

Michele Neylon, Blacknight CEO says, "We are strong believers in technology innovation, and until now we hadn't found a partner company capable of supplying a cutting edge server OS combined with a leading hosting control system, which is easy to maintain for both administrators and customers alike. The combination of Trustix Operating System ES with cPanel is the answer to our clients' needs."

Paul Kelly, Blacknight Technical Director, says "We pride ourselves on security, we have invested thousands of euro and thousands of man-hours planning and deploying one of the most secure and advanced co-location infrastructures in Ireland today. We have a 100% security record with regard to our own shared hosting systems and managed customer systems. Adding Trustix Operating System to the mix makes sense for us, as it is without a doubt the most secure, hassle free and stable Linux distribution. We have tested many over the past 12 months from a large group of open source and closed source distributions and our results were conclusive, Trustix wins hands down."
