New York, 12th July 2005 — Hot on the heels of the successful launch of WHIR TV, the Web Host Industry Review has chosen Comodo, the worlds 2nd largest, fastest growing High Assurance Certification Authority to secure and protect the brand identity and integrity of theWHIR news and review site. Through deployment of a CVC (Content Verification Certificate) on each page across the domain, new and existing readers will be able to ensure they are actually viewing the official web site. With DNS Poisoning, Phishing, Pharming still growing at an alarming rate the ability to verify web page content, securely and effectively remains the primary goal for all web site owners, especially those with critical news content.
Content Verification certificates were developed by Comodo's Research & Development team to address the need to provide a secure visual identity assurance mechanism for web page content. This was achieved without impacting the real estate of the web page, critical where advertising pixels are at a premium. CVCs can provide digitally signed "unspoofable web content" when viewed with the free Plug-in for Internet Explorer.
Deploying CVCs on key pages where 'trust and assurance of content' is essential (e.g. Home Pages, Account Login Pages etc) affords consumers protection now and into the future. Developed and tested by Comodo's global Research and Development operations the CVC architecture is not too dissimilar to the highly successful and extensively proven SSL based e-commerce framework used today by many e-commerce providers. However, where the SSL model of trust underpins the framework of the Internet, CVCs provide trust in the actual content flowing across that framework. This is especially true for a cutting edge news site such as theWHIR.
"The theory behind Content Verification Certificates became one of the most anticipated technological breakthroughs in security on the Internet in recent years" comments Steve Roylance, Vice President of Global Technical Marketing for Comodo "What we've effectively achieved is to transfer the success of the hologram for identity assurance on to the Internet, allowing providers large and small a method to establish trust with their customers."
