Internet Security provider Comodo Earns Five Stars as a Partner Secure Program

Jersey City, NJ, May 25, 2010 - Comodo Security Solutions, Inc., a leading Internet Security vendor, today announced it has been recognized by Everything Channel as having one of North America's top Partner Programs for IT Solution Providers. Everything Channel's 2010 Partner Program Guide awarded a five-star rating to the Partner Secure ™ Partner Program in the Security category.

"This award represents the commitment of Comodo to all of our reseller partners," said Robert Schaffer, Comodo managing director. "Delivering value to the channel is one of our top priorities and we do this by offering profitable cutting-edge solutions."

Everything Channel, headquartered in Framingham, Mass., is a technology marketing and sales solutions company. Its research department analyzed 130 vendor programs, rating vendor responses to in-depth questions about their partner programs in the five elements of sales support, partner profitability, partner ecosystem development/management, partner communication/marketing, and demand generation. To ensure fair comparisons, companies were placed in one of four categories based on company size (Enterprise, Midsize, Small and Emerging). The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes the elite subset of vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

"We evaluate a vendor's program on a wide range of elements," said Kelley Damore, vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel. "Comodo's Partner Secure Partner Program provides incremental margin, training, lead generation and sales support services to partners. We congratulate COMODO and those recognized as this year's Five-Star Partner Program winners for helping to drive greater revenue in the channel."
