Comodo congratulates Flora the Komodo on her upcoming motherhood

Award-winning Comodo Firewall is the best on the market, but can't protect Komodo Dragons from getting pregnant

Jersey City, NJ (December 22, 2006) - Comodo, a leading provider of Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, extends its warmest wishes to Flora the virgin Komodo dragon. Northern England's Chester Zoo has announced that Flora has laid fertilized eggs without any male intervention, via a process called parthenogenesis, hitherto unknown in Komodo dragons. As a result, she is anxiously awaiting the hatching of several baby Komodo dragons during this holiday season.

Komodo dragons are the world's largest, most adaptable lizards and are found exclusively in Indonesia. They grow to 2 meters in length, weigh approximately 70kg, live longer than other lizard species and are at the top of their food chain. Comodo, by contrast, is the world's second largest Certificate Authority, has been growing significantly for the past seven years, and is also at the top of its food chain. The generally available and widely acclaimed Comodo Firewall Pro and its current beta 2.4 (code named 'Flora') have also recently been rated the best firewall available based on independent testing from Matousec, a security testing organization.

"To a reptile with no natural predators in the animal kingdom, from a company with no natural competitors in the identity management space, we extend our most heartfelt congratulations," says Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO of Comodo. "We hope that Flora and her many hatchlings live a long and happy life at the Chester Zoo, less than 100 miles from where Comodo itself was conceived. And, to celebrate this remarkable event, we offer Flora and her family free identity management or desktop security for life."
