Superb Internet announces availability of Comodo SSL security solutions for hosting customers

Kent, UK -28 October 2002. Comodo, the Internet security specialist, has today announced the integration of its SSL solutions into the service offering for hosting customers of Superb Internet Corporation, a world leader of quality managed hosting and e-commerce solutions. The new partnership will see Superb Internet make available Comodo's InstantSSL solutions to all its existing and new customers.

Customers of Superb Internet's e-commerce package receive a FREE InstantSSL Certificate as part of the E-Commerce service offering, and customers using other hosting packages can purchase InstantSSL Certificates through Superb Internet for only $49.

InstantSSL Certificates are digital credentials that enable websites to secure customer transactions using the industry standard security protocol known as SSL. By allowing websites to create an encrypted secure tunnel between the site and the customer, SSL has fuelled the growth and confidence in conducting online transactions. The majority of Internet users now know to look for the 'little gold padlock' indicating an SSL secure session in their browser before entering critical personal information such as credit card numbers and passwords.

InstantSSL has been well received by customers, resellers, ISPs and web hosting companies since its launch earlier this year. By combining essential factors such as industry standard 128-bit SSL, full validation, full support, 99% browser ubiquity and low prices, InstantSSL occupies a unique position in the SSL providers market.

"We are pleased to incorporate Comodo's InstantSSL Certificates into our hosting services." comments Haralds Jass, President & CEO, Superb Internet, "The incorporation of InstantSSL into our E-Commerce hosting package adds considerable value to the bundle, especially as other SSL providers ordinarily charge several hundred dollars for Certificates of the same quality. Customers of our other hosting options may still purchase InstantSSL directly through us at the industry leading price of only P.O.A.."

"Superb Internet has established itself as a leading provider of quality hosting services," comments Jim Whiffin of Comodo, "We are pleased to be able to help Superb add further value to their offerings with the incorporation of our industry leading SSL solutions. Both Comodo and Superb share a common corporate vision - to ensure cost-effective solutions, complete with unparalleled service and customer care levels are always delivered to the customer. We look forward to working closely with Superb."

InstantSSL Certificates are now available through Superb Internet.

Since being launched in May 2002 over 400 web hosting companies, ISPs and resellers have joined the InstantSSL partner programs.
