Comodo Launches cWatch Web to Improve Website Performance and Security

CLIFTON, N.J. –  Sept. 19, 2017 –  Comodo, a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions and the worldwide leader in digital certificates, today announced the release of cWatch Web, a comprehensive suite of solutions and managed services that provides malware detection and protection; attack response and remediation/recovery; and performance acceleration and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack prevention for websites and web applications. 

Cloud-based and delivered in an affordable Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, cWatch Web brings world-class website and web app protection to small, medium and large enterprises, starting as low as $99 per year. 

“There is a known cybersecurity skills gap that is preventing small- to mid-size companies from fully protecting their websites. Internal resources may be slim because of smaller security budgets, or the staff they do have may not be well-versed in internet security specifically. And with the prevalence of DDoS and online payment fraud on the rise, these talents are more important than ever,” said Rob Ayoub, research director, IDC. “Comodo cWatch Web is helping to lessen this gap. Not only does it provide malware and DDoS defense, attack remediation, and improved website performance, it provides expert security analysts available at all hours, any day of the week to support organizations’ internal staff where needed— significantly improving their web security.”

As a managed security services provider (MSSP), Comodo backs up its technology with a 24/7 security operations center (SOC), staffed with experienced security analysts who provide support for using and monitoring the platform, and for incident investigation and response. Deployment is just a few steps and takes only minutes. Once the domain record is made available, the Comodo Content Delivery Network (CDN) hosts the website and secures it. 

Comodo is also enabling qualified website certificate channel partners to offer cWatch Web to their own clients and expand their range of value-added web security services.

“Company websites are the company’s virtual front door. For many, the website is the business, the point of business transactions that include e-commerce, processing sensitive client information and access to internal databases,” said Michael Fowler, Comodo CA president. “Protecting websites is mission-critical, and that is why we made cWatch Web as a complete security stack bundle backed by our managed services. cWatch Web is our platform for bringing true enterprise-grade, defense-in-depth cyber protections to company websites at an affordable price.

CWatch Web comprises a full stack of managed website and web app security defenses, including these components typically available only to large scale enterprises:

  • Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
  • Web Application Firewall (WAF)
  • Content Delivery Network (CDN)
  • Malware Detection Scanning
  • Virtual Patching


The feature-rich, comprehensive cWatch Web suite delivers the complete spectrum of defensive services defined as best practices by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) to Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover. It protects organizations of all sizes from well-known website attacks such as SQL Injection (SQLi), Cross Site Scripts (XSS), DDoS and a host of other techniques that use the website as a bridgehead to initiate an attacker’s process of becoming an insider threat to the corporate network.

As the world’s leading certificate authority, and with millions of endpoints protected by its containment-based Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP), Comodo is in a unique position to use its rich source of threat intelligence to enable cWatch Web for its clients’ website and web app security.

For example, Comodo’s SOC team uses the inputs from all its resources to provide regular WAF rule updates through its managed services. This helps keep websites protected from the latest threats and delivers another major benefit—virtual patching. Patching is a lengthy and often neglected chore that, if left undone, can leave websites vulnerable to threats that may already have been known for years, as well as the latest zero-day attacks. By regularly updating cWatch Web, frequent scanning can find if an exploit is present in the website or app that targets an unpatched vulnerability, alert the security team and then block it.

Comodo’s cWatch Web suite of website performance and security solutions is available online today, or through certified Comodo partners.
