APLUS.NET AND COMODO JOIN SSL FORCES

Aplus.Net customers get immediate access to SSL products by Comodo

San Diego, CA and New York, NY - October 4th, 2005 — Leading Internet presence solution provider, Aplus.Net and global leader in Internet assurance, authentication and security services, Comodo Inc. today announced their partnership in offering professional-grade Secure Sockets Layer ( SSL ) certificates. The partnership will enable present and future Aplus.Net clients to benefit from the security and assurance generated by Comodo High Assurance digital certificates.

According to the agreement, Comodo will supply Aplus.Net with the immediate ability to sell Aplus.Net-branded SSL Certificates with Comodo operating the back end issuance and validation infrastructure. Comodo's SSL Certificates are trusted by 99.3% of the current Internet users, which means that Aplus.Net's SSL Certificates will now be trusted as the more expensive Certificates from Verisign & Thawte.

"We are delighted that Aplus.Net has selected Comodo to be the Certificate Authority (CA) infrastructure provider for their new SSL certificate offering," commented James Langman VP Business Development at Comodo. "Aplus.net will now be able to pass on the benefits of Comodo's high speed, high assurance and cost effective SSL certificates to their own sizeable customer base whilst at the same time leveraging the strength of their own brand. There is a clear synergy between Comodo and Aplus.Net's core values, which is to provide both a high quality product and unrivalled value for money to today's online consumers."

"Aplus.Net is committed to providing our customers with the ability to grow their business, and we believe that our partnership with Comodo will be instrumental in helping us achieve this goal," commented Ivan Vachovsky, CEO of Aplus.Net. "With the rise of online security breaches, we are proud to offer our customers additional security and reliability through top-notch SSL support. It is Aplus.Net's goal to provide small businesses with quality online products and services. We are happy to add this offering to our vast portfolio of IT solutions."

This agreement solidifies Aplus.Net's position as a complete Internet presence solution provider, while expanding Comodo's position as a leading CA infrastructure provider.
