Comodo Launches Consumer Advocacy Campaign

Press release from: Comodo

Jersey City, NJ, March 20, 2012 – With more than 50,000 new malware samples attacking the Internet daily and hackers becoming more and more sophisticated – tracking online behavior, monitoring social networks and developing new forms of cyber criminality every year – computer users must take measures to protect themselves online. And Comodo, a leading Internet security provider, wants to help them do just that.

Now, Comodo Security Solutions is embarking on a campaign to give both consumers and businesses educational information in the form of informative blogs at Blogs.comodo.com and via tips on Facebook and Twitter as well as through educational videos.

For example, Comodo's educational campaign will explore many Internet-related problems facing both businesses and individuals, ranging from solutions that increase web site traffic to ways Android users can defeat malware attacks.

For years, Comodo has challenged the Internet security industry, calling on vendors to stop selling cleaning software as protection. Unlike other Internet security companies, Comodo's solutions reject weak conventional strategies such as blacklisting known threats. Comodo's solutions use a more advanced white list strategy that actually prevents infections.

Comodo also uses Default Deny prevention technology that stops even new threats before they can cause damage to a computer, isolating suspicious files so they cannot cause harm – unlike the Default Allow approach used by other Internet security vendors that address the problem only after a system is infected.

Comodo's Auto Sandbox Technology is the Default Deny component that actually quarantines suspicious new files so they can be scrutinized before they can do harm to a user's system. This virtual, isolated operating environment runs silently and automatically and will not allow permanent changes to other processes, programs or data on a user's 'real' system. Once any suspicious application that has been placed in the Sandbox is tagged as a threat, Default Deny's Antivirus component destroys it. There is no more advanced anti-malware solution available today.

"At Comodo we are committed to science, not hype," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo's CEO. "All of the Internet Security and Trust Assurance products and services developed by Comodo must derive from serious scientific investigation and achievement. Not hype."

Comodo is a leading Internet security provider. With U.S. Headquarters in New Jersey and global resources in UK, China, India, Ukraine, and Romania, Comodo provides businesses and consumers worldwide with security services, including digital certificates, PCI scanning, desktop security, and remote PC support. Securing online transactions for more than 200,000 businesses, and with more than 35 million desktop security software installations, including an award-winning firewall and antivirus software, Comodo is Creating Trust Online®.
