COMODO INTRODUCES THE HACKERPROOF RESELLER INCENTIVE PROGRAM WITH FREE HACKERPROOF SERVICE FOR QUALIFYING PARTNERS

Revolutionary HackerProof Incentive Program gives Resellers new revenue opportunities and new tools for E-Merchant to drive higher visitor conversion

JERSEY CITY, NJ March 13, 2008 - Under a new initiative, Comodo, a leading Certification Authority, introduced the HackerProof Reseller Incentive Program aimed at highlighting to its channel partners the value of HackerProof to online E-Merchant and the new revenue opportunities this presents for resellers. This program offers qualifying resellers special channel pricing and a year of free HackerProof service as a way for partners to experience first hand the value of this innovative service. This HackerProof offer is part of Comodo's partner program designed to provide partners with an extensive suite of solutions that online merchants require to create secure and trusted transactions.

According to a study conducted by Harris Polls in May of 2006, consumers continue to express concern over the trustworthiness of online sites with only 5% of consumers reporting having "a great deal" of trust in eTailers. Over 50% of consumers do not trust eTailers at all or trust them very little. To address this growing trust gap, Comodo launched Comodo HackerProof, a new eMerchant service that drives visitor conversion by certifying that the site has been tested and meets Comodo's stringent security standards. Sites passing Comodo's vulnerability scans and are certified to be free of security gaps can display the HackerProof trust mark, a highly valued trust mark recognized by over 100 million people who associate the Comodo brand with security. Additionally, the HackerProof trust mark incorporates patent-pending and proprietary technology to enable significant brand credibility because the site's credentials are visible and verifiable throughout the customer's interaction. As proof of the Comodo brand's ability to drive conversion, Comodo offers this advanced service for free until the eMerchant sees at least a 5% increase in site conversion rates thus providing a compelling ROI (return on investment) and business case for this implementation of this solution.

The Comodo HackerProof Incentive Program is part of the Comodo channel partner program that delivers significant value to partners, including central management capabilities, zero integration reseller programs, white label solution options, and world class customer support. Other reseller program benefits include:

Integrates into your product offerings easily

Discounted pricing

Promotional Center helps you maximize revenue with sales and promotional tools

"Channel partners increasingly tell us that they want the ability to offer a broad array of security and authentication services to their customers." said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. "By coupling the breadth and depth of a Comodo solutions portfolio with our sophisticated platform to enable resellers to profit from the diverse Comodo solutions offers, our customers gain a competitive edge that transcends single solution providers."
