Microsoft IIS Users Now Able to Deploy EV SSL Certificates with Advanced Installation Technology Unmatched by any other Certification Authority

Jersey City, NJ (July 24, 2007) - Comodo, a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, announced today that its patent-pending EV AUTO-Enhancer™ is now available for Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). This technology, which simplifies EV SSL certificate installation, now supports over 85% of the server market.

EV AUTO-Enhancer™ - Automatic Deployment and Maintenance Technology is a patent-pending technology that allows end-users using Windows XP to always instantly see the EV "green bar" in Microsoft IE 7. With EV AUTO-Enhancer™, Comodo's new EV root certificate is automatically installed into the trusted root store of the user's browser whenever an https session is initiated. Unlike the "EV enabling" technologies available from other Certification Authorities, Comodo's EV AUTO-Enhancer™ technology works without any webpage modifications and works even when JavaScript is disabled in users' browsers.

EV AUTO-Enhancer™ is included with every Comodo EV (SGC) SSL certificate. With this technology, Comodo's EV (SGC) SSL certificates become more cost-effective, requiring no further IT resources or manual deployment.

"Now Comodo can offer this leading edge technology to most servers in the market today," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. "Comodo continues to raise the bar on not only the quality of its solutions, but the breadth of its reach."
