Internet Security provider Comodo's TrustFax passes one year milestone and emerges as one of the fastest growing online faxing services

TrustFax is the first in a new solution set focused on trusted and verified digital collaboration

Jersey City, NJ (March 16, 2006) - Comodo, a global, leading Certification Authority and provider of Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, today announced its TrustFax Online Faxing solution has reached a one year milestone as one of the fastest growing online faxing services. TrustFax (Trustfax.com) is part of comodo's overall strategy to introduce a new class of verifiable and authenticated online collaboration tools to enable customers to conduct all digital communications and collaboration with mutual authentication, encryption and identity assurance. TrustFax, a technologically advanced online service, was designed to provide a richly featured service with special focus on enabling customers to achieve a new level of verifiable and trusted communications through identity assurance.

As a leading Certification Authority, Comodo developed TrustFax online service to incorporate a higher level of identity protection through features such as digitized signature, ability to fill out PDF forms online and an online "digital filing cabinet" capable of storing large files for later retrieval through any web browser. In addition, Comodo will shortly be launching "Desktop TrustFax" enabling any document to be directly faxed from the PC without uploading into online faxing service or printing the document to be scanned for faxing. All these features are specifically included to reduce customer exposure to ID theft often encountered when consumers print, sign and refax confidential information.

The tremendous market acceptance and "stickiness" of TrustFax has resulted in the creation of a large embedded base of "identity and security conscious" customers who recognize the value of trusted collaboration services, like TrustFax, that enable a verifiable digital interaction. Based on this success, Comodo will be launching Phase Two of this strategic initiative to include:

  • Launching of TrustFax to comodo's extensive reseller channel of 5000+ partners. Currently, these partners provide access to nearly 50% of all online businesses worldwide.
  • Introduction of other trusted collaboration tools including ComodoMeet - a web conferencing service, Comodo User Anywhere enabling secure, remote PC management.

These solutions leverage comodo's core strength as a Certification Authority which singularly gives Comodo the ability (through PKI systems and processes) to manage customer requirements for verification and authentication in digital collaborations and interactions.

" Internet security threats are rising at an alarming pace, and as consumers are becoming aware of the risks that encompass online collaboration, there is a genuine concern that customers will constrain their online activity." said Melih Abdulhayoglu, President and CEO of Comodo. "Comodo developed TrustFax and all solutions within this trusted collaboration suite to secure, verify and authenticate online interactions so customers can be assured that they are interacting with legitimate individuals, entities and organizations."
