Comodo Introduces EV AUTO-Enhancer™ – Technology to Reduce Total Cost of EV SSL Ownership
Patent-Pending Technology Raises the Bar and Maximizes the Value of Comodo EV SSL and EV SGC Certificates by Automating Deployment
Jersey City, NJ (April 27, 2007) – Comodo, a global Certification Authority and leading provider of Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, announced today the successful deployment of a new patent-pending technology, EV AUTO-Enhancer™ – Automatic Deployment and Maintenance Technology. This patent-pending technology maximizes the value of using a Comodo EV SSL or EV SGC Certificate by automating the deployment and expanding the usability of EV SSL Certificates for Windows XP users. Now, no web design experts or added financial resources are needed to successfully deploy these high-security certificates, because this new technology eliminates the need for the extensive webpage updates required by our competitors’ “EV beacon” solutions.
What is Comodo’s EV AUTO-Enhancer™ and How Does it Work?
In order for end-users to instantly see the much-talked-about EV “green bar”, a new EV root certificate for the relevant Certification Authority must be installed in the certificate storage facility of Internet Explorer 7. EV AUTO-Enhancer™ 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 process is seamlessly carried out during the SSL handshake with the web server and is completely transparent to the end user. Unlike most EV certificates issued by other companies, our Certificates can see the green bar immediately.
