COMODO FIREWALL PRO PLUS GIVES COMPUTERS A FRESH START AS STUDENTS HEAD BACK TO SCHOOL

Comodo Pro PLUS service optimizes the performance of any PCs plus the 30 day Free Trial period eliminates customer risk

Jersey City, NJ, August 20, 2008 - Comodo, a leading Internet security company, recently announced that its Comodo Firewall Pro PLUS service is designed to help improve a computer's performance which makes it particularly useful for any student heading back to school. With Comodo Pro PLUS, customers can protect a new machine with state-of-the-art Internet security or, for older machines, customers can also use the services to clean and optimize an existing PC. New customers can take advantage of the risk-free 30-day offer and cancel at any time before the end of the trial.

For many students heading back to school in the fall, PCs have become the central "tool" they need for their education. Therefore, many students either need to protect a new PC investment from viruses or, more often with student's limited budgets, recondition older PCs to perform better. Comodo Firewall Pro PLUS delivers a fully architected solution that incorporates PC Security software along with PC tune-up services that can optimize the performance of older PCs. The service can also correct performance problems that may come up with new PCs. With this offer, customers can get both preventative and remediation services far more economically than the typical cost of security software which often retail for $50 or more.

Comodo Firewall Pro PLUS service costs $39 for an annual plan and provides:

  • Award-winning Comodo Firewall Pro software that prevents virtually all viruses and malware from gaining access to the PC (comparable security software can cost $50 or more)

  • Professional installation and default configuration of Comodo Firewall security software

  • One (1) PC TuneUp that optimizes the computer's performance and memory utilization (comparable services can cost $29)

  • Two (2) Virus removals should some virus breach occur (each incident can cost $99 from competitive service providers)

  • Around-the-clock (24/7/365) live chat support

" As students head back to school, they need to have a fresh start with a fresh computer ," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. " Comodo Firewall Pro PLUS offers students the assurance that they will go back to school with a clean machine, and the assurance that the machine will be kept clean for the entire school year ."
