Comodo Cybersecurity Announces Partnership with FocusPoint Technologies, Bringing Enterprise-Class Security Solutions to SMBs

CLIFTON, N.J. -- June 21, 2018 – Comodo Cybersecurity, the global leader in innovative cyber technology software solutions, announced a new partnership today with FocusPoint Technologies, a Minnesota-based privacy and security vendor helping small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) evolve their security maturity model.

Working across a wide array of industry sectors in the Upper Midwest, as well as state and local governments, FocusPoint offers customers the technology and expertise they need to define and grow a security program that exceeds expectations while meeting all regulatory requirements. Additionally, the company uses a proprietary process of vetting, implementation, training and managed security services to provide solution analysis and recommendations. 

“Security and privacy program maturity varies from company to company,” says Kathy Washenberger, CIO at FocusPoint Technologies. “Many SMBs need help establishing an effective security program and navigating the confusing maze of solutions. We help our customers build their people, processes and programmatic capabilities, as well as gain peace of mind, knowing they have the right security solutions for their needs.”

Comodo Cybersecurity’s innovative Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) platform—including auto-containment of all unknown files, real-time Valkyrie verdicting and competitive pricing—have made them an attractive partner for FocusPoint Technologies, who will be implementing these solutions as part of their own endpoint security suite

Valkyrie, a cloud-based file analysis platform processing more than 200 million unknown submissions each day, offers core functionality to many Comodo Cybersecurity products. In less than 45 seconds, it provides a 100% trusted and verified verdict for 99+ % of all unknown files. “Once Valkyrie renders a verdict, it applies holistically to the organization and prevents that malware from penetrating any endpoint,” says Washenberger. “Our SMB clients who use Comodo Cybersecurity’s AEP, which includes Valkyrie, can rest assured their systems will be infection-free.”

“When an unknown file of any kind attempts to execute on a website, in a cloud instance or local area network, Comodo technology preemptively places a protective container around it—a defensive sandbox where it can still run, but without doing any harm,” says Steve Subar, president and CEO of Comodo Cybersecurity. “Users enjoy uninterrupted operations with unfettered access to all files and applications in a safe and protected environment.”

In studying the security market, Washenberger and her team realized Comodo Cybersecurity’s AEP platform was an ideal fit for their customers, many of whom are supporting mobile workforces to evolve their digital business expertise. “It is our job to help our clients protect their people, devices and systems from malicious malware, while preserving the user experience,” says Washenberger.

 “The digital world is facing a relentless barrage of increasingly sophisticated attacks. Companies of all sizes need and deserve best-in-class solutions they can rely on to harden their security posture, including SMBs who don’t have enormous budgets for cybersecurity software. We are pleased to partner with FocusPoint Technologies in providing SMBs with the type of security solutions only the largest enterprises could once afford,” says Subar.
