Comodo SSL Certificates Now Available Through Parallels Partner Storefront

Service Providers Can Generate Additional Revenue and Value Added Service with Comodo Certs

JERSEY CITY, NJ, December 1, 2010 - Comodo, a leading certificate authority and Internet security organization, and Cloud services enablement leader, Parallels today announced that Comodo's SSL Certificates are now available through the Parallels Partner Storefront to help service providers profit from the Cloud.

Comodo's business-validated certificates provide SSL encryption and strong visual assurance for a small business website. Customers and visitors get future-proof security and visual assurance by employing Comodo's popular business validated SSL certificates.

Parallels Partner Storefront, available through Parallels Plesk Panel 10, allows hosting customers to quickly and easily select, purchase and install a number of commercial and open source applications and services.

"Comodo is an industry leader in Internet Security and SSL certificates," said Bryan Goode, VP and GM for Parallels Marketplace. "We are excited to make Comodo Essential and Comodo Instant SSL certificates available through the Parallels Partner Storefront for purchase by hosting users."

The complexity of IT can easily become an expensive and time-consuming distraction for small businesses. Acquiring applications and services through the Cloud removes both the significant initial expense of in-house IT operations, and simplifies decision-making as small businesses can get a range of services from a single provider they already work with and trust.

"What attracts us to the Parallels Partner Storefront is its ease of use and simplicity," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and chief security architect at Comodo. "Integrated with Parallels Plesk Panel 10, it delivers a centralized control panel that allows our customers to access the Comodo certificates they need in a few clicks making it easier for them to do business with us."
