AGILE INDUSTRIES PARTNERS WITH COMODO AFTER DROPPING ESET
Clifton, NJ – September 1, 2020 – Comodo and Agile Industries today announced their strategic partnership. Agile Industries, an Information Technology and services provider for non-profit organizations and based in Alberta, Canada added Comodo security solutions to its offering.
“Our partnership with Comodo gives us peace of mind knowing our clients have top-notch security,” said Harlee Courtepatte, Founder and CEO, Agile Industries. He continued, “We originally had ESET, but during the planning process for a large client migration to 365, we looked for a new antivirus on our server-side. We researched several offerings, including those from ESET and Blackberry. After seeing a demo and experiencing a trial of Comodo’s Dragon Platform we decided to drop ESET and go with Comodo. We made the right decision – Comodo offers excellent customer service that exceeds our high expectations. Since day one I have resources for any question, concern, or advice. I am treated as a true partner, and this in turn has helped provide the best offerings to our clients. From now on, I will choose Comodo over any competitor.”
Agile Industries chose Comodo’s Dragon platform with Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP), which is a complete cloud-native framework that delivers a zero-trust architecture to protect and defend endpoints. Its patent-pending auto containment technology has active breach protection that neutralizes ransomware, malware and cyber-attacks. The auto containment runs an unknown executable in a kernel API virtualized mode, thereby offering attack surface reduction (ASR) which neutralizes ransomware attacks. The Dragon Platform also utilizes a Default Deny security posture with Default Allow usability to provide a most comprehensive protection against zero-day threats, while having no impact on end-user experience or workflows. In addition, Comodo’s Valkyrie analyzes and gives a trusted verdict for every file – no other company will analyze and give trusted verdict for 100% of the files on a network.
Courtepatte continued, “Comodo’s Dragon Platform gives the ability to write scripts for extra control. For example, our CTO Jeffrey Johnson scripted Azure alerts to let us know if our VM processor consumption exceeds 95%. This is important because, in a multi-tenant user environment, this could mean 100+ users are freezing up, causing disruptions in work, and soon to follow will be IT tickets. Now we can get ahead of these things, before they become a problem. This reduces our workload and saves money through reduced desktop support hours, which we pass back onto the consumer. In addition, our end users have a better experience because they often do not notice there was an issue going on in the first place.”
Comodo’s platform shares intelligence and is therefore more secure than disparate products that claim best of breed but don’t share information. Comodo has architected its cybersecurity product to maximize intelligent sharing between every component of the platform, therefore providing superior security.
“Our workflows are much more streamlined. The biggest benefit I noticed is how much less time I spend in the Dragon platform rather than In Azure. Since we connected Comodo to our clients’ Azure AD and enabled LDAP we are syncing our client’s employees, creating groups, organizing security levels and creating device ownership,” said Courtepatte.
Alan Knepfer, President and Chief Revenue Office at Comodo said, “This is another example of Comodo helping partners worldwide offer innovative, intelligent security solutions.”
