Kent UK, 15 January 2003. Comodo, the internet security specialists, has today announced the signing of its 800th member of its partner programs. Since launching its SSL solutions in March 2002, Comodo has experienced great success as an SSL provider and has quickly become the prominent global player in the security market. Its InstantSSL range uniquely balances low costs, full two-step validation, 128 bit encryption and 99% browser compatibility with fast issuance, expert customer support and a number of partner-to-Comodo interface methods to establish a clear position in the security market.

Many leading names have partnered with Comodo including pair Networks, Superb Internet, CI Host, Bit Engines and eBiz-Id. Commenting on today's news, Pascal Geuns, founder of Bit Engines notes "We, along with many others, have long been convinced of the quality of both Comodo's products and the service offered to its partners", whilst Steve Ball, CEO of Altaire observes "Our partnership with Comodo has allowed us to expand our security services with strong branding. We have seen first hand why Comodo has proven so successful in the market."

Paul Tourret, Managing Director of Comodo Limited, remarks "It is a clear vote of confidence from the market for us to have passed this milestone in such a short period of time. The successful signing of our 800th partner is a very welcome event and we look forward to further strengthening our market position over the coming months."

The reinforcing of Comodo's strong market position is achieved by adding value to both partners and customers; partners with a free sign-up product package and customers with a free products bundle - the most comprehensive of its type in the market. The sign-up package comprises a TrustLogo and PremiumSSL certificate worth a combined $327, whilst the customer free product bundle includes a secure email certificate, fully-validated trial SSL certificate and automated network security audit. Additionally, partner sales potential is maximized by an ever-growing range of highly tuned promotional resources developed by Comodo working in close conjunction with its partners.

Comodo also offers ISPs, hosting companies, resellers and service providers the ability to provide privately labeled SSL products under its Powered Partner program, rolled out directly to end customers through their own branded interface. Comodo operates the backend Certification Authority legal and insurance infrastructure responsible for the actual processing, validation, issuance and support of the SSL Certificate.

Along with InstantSSL, Comodo currently offers free secure email certificates, TrustLogo and TrustToolbar real time web identity assurance via IDAuthority and network security audits in conjunction with E-Soft. More security initiatives are being developed and will be launched shortly.

Comodo's success has been built on many factors, with the unique features of the InstantSSL range synergizing with the close working relationships, wealth of partner resources and flexible interfaces to provide todays fast growing and highly personalized partner network.
