SSL provider Comodo launches Vengine embedded

The Establishing Trust initiative makes CVC technology freely available to security providers worldwide, spawning an army of anti-phishing tools for consumers.

New York, 24th May 2005. The worlds 2nd largest, fastest growing High Assurance Certification Authority Comodo today made patent pending anti-phishing and identity assurance technology freely available to toolbar providers and security solutions providers worldwide.

"By creating an army of tools and solutions to help fight against all forms of web based identity theft, Comodo is leading the way in Establishing Trust on the Internet", said Melih Abdulhayoglu, President, CEO and Chief Security Architect for the Comodo Group.

With DNS Poisoning, Phishing, Pharming still growing at an alarming rate the ability to verify web page content, securely and effectively remains the primary goal for all web site owners. Deploying CVCs on key pages where 'trust and assurance of content' is essential (e.g. Home Pages, Account Login Pages etc) affords consumers protection now and into the future. Developed and tested by Comodo's global Research and Development operations the CVC architecture is not too dissimilar to the highly successful and extensively proven SSL based e-commerce framework used today by many e-commerce providers. However, where the SSL model of trust underpins the framework of the Internet, CVCs provide trust in the actual content flowing across that framework.

"The theory behind Content Verification Certificates became one of the most anticipated technological breakthroughs in security on the Internet in recent years" comments Steve Roylance, Vice President of Global Technical Marketing for Comodo "What we've effectively achieved is to transfer the success of the hologram for identity assurance on to the Internet, allowing providers large and small a method to establish trust with their customers."

Available as an extension to Internet Explorer, the Verification Engine (Vengine) stand alone product meshes perfectly with 3rd party tool bars such as the eBay, Alexa and Google toolbar’s assuring the validity of the toolbar and protecting the user against potential graphical replacements of the toolbar. Adding additional value, in being able to securely display trusted content, also allows for the creation of an incremental recurring revenue stream for the partner embedding the technology.
