Jersey City, NJ (August 14, 2007) - Comodo , a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, announced today that its Corner of Trust Seal, a technologically advanced seal that can be embedded in Websites to authenticate business identities, has been used to help promote millions of online transactions since its introduction in 2006.

Phishing and pharming attacks are steadily increasing and eMerchants need a way to establish trust with consumers. With the purchase of a Comodo high assurance SSL or EV SSL certificate, eMerchants can display the Corner of Trust, which details the eMerchants Comodo-verified identity in a highly conspicuous and easily accessible fashion to all site visitors, without forcing them to click away to another website to access these credentials.
