TulipWorld Chooses Comodo for its Online Security Infrastructure

Leading Home & Garden Retailer to Employ High Assurance Confidence Pak with Four Technologies, Including the New EV SSL Certificate and PCI Compliancy Scanning At A Cost Saving over $2,000 versus Competitive Offerings

Jersey City, NJ (July 26, 2007) - Comodo, a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, announced today that TulipWorld, a leading retailer of flowers and floral products, has chosen Comodo's High Assurance Confidence Pak to deliver a high level of security to its customers during online transactions.

Comodo's High Assurance Confidence Pak bundles four cutting-edge technologies and is offered at special pricing to businesses at $595. This package includes:

  • EV SSL Certificate
    This recently introduced SSL certificate type will be on TulipWorld's site and builds on the trust that the marketplace has in traditional SSL protection by adding a visual confirmation of a site's identity through a green "good to go" indicator displayed in Microsoft's IE7 browser address bar. Importantly, only Comodo's EV SSL certificates come with EV AUTO-Enhancer™ - Automatic Deployment and Maintenance Technology that automatically installs Comodo's new EV root certificate into the trusted root store of the user's browser whenever an https session is initiated. This patent-pending technology allows end-users using Windows XP to always instantly see the EV "green bar" in Microsoft IE 7. Further, 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.

  • HackerGuardian PCI Compliant Scanning
    The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard was created by major credit card companies to safeguard customer information from threats by hackers compromising servers. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and other credit card associations mandate that merchants and service providers meet certain minimum standards of security when they store, process and transmit cardholder data. To help TulipWorld comply with the new requirements from the credit card industry, Comodo delivers PCI compliant scanning service that addresses this need.

  • HackerGuardian Daily Vulnerability Management Solution
    This solution will scan TulipWorld's server daily performing more than 14,000 threat tests daily to detect possible vulnerabilities that may expose sensitive customer information to hackers.

  • TrustLogos
    These "next generation" site seals to be deployed on TulipWorld's site have "point to verify" seamless authentication that provides non-disruptive way for website visitors to access trust credentials. This solution suite includes 3 TrustLogos:

    1) HackerGuardian TrustLogo confirming that the site is free of vulnerabilities,

    2) Corner of TrustLogo with fixed-position technology to enable end-users to see an eMerchant's business credentials and

    3) A credit card TrustLogo confirming the merchant can be trusted with sensitive credit card information.

"In our Industry, having the freshest flowers and highest quality bulbs no longer fully guarantees a sale," said Erik Thomas, Director of Ecommerce for TulipWorld. "We have to prove that the sale is a safe transaction and our customers' information remains secure, or we stand to send our sales elsewhere. That is why we chose Comodo."

The High Assurance Confidence Pak delivers the latest in security technology at a cost that saves eMerchants thousands of dollars. For example, other security companies charge over $1400 alone for EV SSL certificates, another $1200 for Daily Vulnerability Scanning plus $149 for PCI Compliancy Scanning. By contrast, Comodo's High Assurance Confidence Pak at $595 saves most eMerchants over $2,000 in annual costs alone.
