Press release from: Comodo Group

/ PR Agency: COMODO
Newest version received 4 ½ stars out of five and is a recommended editor's choice for desktop security.

Jersey City, NJ, January 09, 2008 - Comodo, a leading Certification Authority and global provider of security solutions today announced that PC Magazine selected Comodo Firewall Pro (version 3.0) as an "Editor's Choice" awarding it 4 ½ stars out of five. PC Magazine evaluated this solution and concluded that, "Comodo Firewall Pro 3.0 is all things to all people. It can act as a simple personal firewall that handles only the basic functions. It can broaden its protection to many critical system areas. And a super-techie can tweak just about any part of it. Best of all, it's free!"

The review continues with a detailed assessment of the solution's key technologies that, together, keep computers nearly virus and malware free.

* "Defense+" for proactive monitoring of internal systems and processes:
Defense+ is an advanced Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) that monitors and protects critical system resources which prevents system changes such as rootkit installations, inter-process memory injections, key-loggers and more.
* Patent Pending "Clean PC Mode"
With this feature, applications already on your hard drive are assumed to be safe and any unrecognized software will not be allowed to be installed unless; a) the user grants installation permissions or b) the application is recognized by Comodo's extensive white list of over one million applications (and growing).
* Advanced firewall engine for preventative management of incoming, outgoing Internet traffic:
Comodo Firewall Pro offers preventative monitoring of all inbound and outbound traffic which will prevent hackers, malware and identity thieves from penetrating a computer. The reporter, Neil Rubenking, explained, "I subjected the firewall to my usual barrage of Web-based tests, including port scans and a variety of other sneak attacks. Comodo Firewall Pro passed with flying colors. All ports were stealthed, making the computer invisible to hackers. Every personal firewall needs to pass this test."

The review continues to highlight other innovations and features such as the solution's flexible security rules interface, granular level user controls, enhanced graphical user interface, lighter footprint and event logging. With this robust and innovative set of technologies and features, PC Magazine rates Comodo as, "A well-thought-out set of protection levels [that] lets it conform to the needs of any user, from novice to über-geek."
