Comodo Internet Security Announces upgraded Advanced Endpoint Protection V 1.6 and Stops Viruses and Malware Completely

Now Available in Chinese—Patent Pending Technology Delivers Unparalled 100% Proactive Protection by Shifting the Paradigm from Virus Infection Removal to Prevention

Jersey City, NJ, July 16, 2010 - Comodo, a leading Certificate Authority and Internet Security organization, today announced the release of Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection 1.6 software. Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection allows network administrators to centrally manage Comodo security products such as Comodo Disk Encryption and Comodo Internet Security (CIS). CIS is Comodo's layered security suite for Windows based PCs and features antivirus, firewall, host intrusion prevention and automatic sandboxing of untrusted executables. It was recently rated #1 security solution by Matousec.com, an independent security testing authority. ESM 1.6 combines the unparalleled malware prevention of CIS software together with powerful central administration features for businesses with dozens to thousands of PCs.

Version 1.6 New Release Offers:

  • Localized Interface – ESM 1.6 administration console is now available in Chinese (Mandarin dialect).
  • Integration with Comodo Internet Security 4.1. ESM 1.6 also has the ability to automatically install Comodo Internet Security (Antivirus/Firewall components) in Chinese.
  • Seamless and improved compatibility with Windows Domain Controllers
  • Reconfiguring CIS on endpoint machines no longer requires that a user is logged into the local machine.
  • ESM 1.6 offers the ability to use custom ports for the antivirus component while safeguarding entry points to the user's environment.
  • Updates, improvements, tweaks and fixes in response to reports by customers and by the Comodo forum community.

"The new GUI localization feature with Chinese language support is in high demand by customers and is the first of many planned languages as we expand our internationalization efforts and further improve the service we provide to our non-native English speaking audiences," said Comodo CEO and President, Melih Abdulhayoglu,

"We are relentless in our pursuit to improve PC Security options for the business community. In addition to direct financial losses due to cybercrime, businesses are increasingly burdened by high IT staff costs to remediate malware infections and administer security software, increased equipment costs to replace infected PCs and losses to employee productivity due to slow or unavailable PCs." Abdulhayoglu explained.

Pricing and Availability

Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection 1.6 is priced per PC or endpoint based on the number of endpoint licenses purchased. Prices range from $22.95/year per machine for 100 or fewer endpoint licenses to below $10/year for over 5000 endpoints. Purchases can be made immediately by requesting a demo at the Comodo website or by calling the Comodo sales department for more information.
