According to CEO Melih Abdulhayoğlu,

“Comodo has earned each point of market share one by one. One user at a time, and one business at a time. Each established by trust. Trust in our innovative products, trust in our customer support, trust in our mission to create security online. Each individual, each business…they chose Comodo. Trust doesn’t only grow linearly, it fosters a network which expands exponentially into an ecosystem, leading up to a global force of 85 million installations of our security products. It’s hard to grasp sometimes. Because it begins with a vision, something intangible. But you can breathe life into that vision with diligent work, and with the user in mind, their security, the work becomes a mission, one that people believe in with you. They share your values. And they march alongside you. We’re grateful for their choice, their trust in us, and we won’t forget it.
