Comodo, a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions, announced that it has opened its first office in the heart of Silicon Valley, in Santa Clara, California.

The new location will house Comodo’s expanded enterprise product management and product marketing team in the state-of-the-art TechMart building, which neighbors Levi’s Stadium and the Santa Clara Convention Center.

The new Silicon Valley office will be headed up by John Peterson, who recently joined Comodo as vice president of Enterprise Product Management and Product Marketing with an executive leadership background from Zscaler, Barracuda Networks, Juniper Networks, Websense, Fortinet and others. Peterson has led product innovation as part of a more than 25-year career in the IT and Security space.

“Innovation makes up the very DNA of Comodo – it’s the foundation on which the company was built, and it will continue to be a cornerstone of our IT management and cybersecurity technology,” said Peterson. “It’s a natural fit for Comodo to be in one of the global hotspots for technology innovation, building out our product roadmap.”

The new Silicon Valley office will focus on product development, roadmap milestones, and product positioning working across the global Comodo network with engineering resources in Turkey, Romania, Ukraine, India, China, Philippines, UK and the United States.

The new office will also be home to Comodo’s global business development team, led by Vice President of Enterprise Business Development and Emerging Products Paul Jespersen, who joined Comodo earlier in 2015. That team will lead all global strategic partnerships and alliances, including integrations and OEM agreements, as well as emerging product and channel market development activities, leveraging the proximity of the new office to many of Comodo’s partners.

“With many of our current and future partners having a presence here in Silicon Valley, we felt it was important to base our business development efforts out of the new office to build on our momentum in the industry,” said Jespersen.

Comodo was founded by CEO Melih Abdulhayoglu, a company that has been built upon the very foundation of trust, believing that every single digital transaction must have a layer of trust and security built in. Thousands of companies and organizations rely on Comodo’s technology to authenticate, validate and secure their most precious asset – information – and to combat the constant malware and cyberattacks that are creating havoc on a global scale.

In October, Comodo announced it had opened an office in Atlanta, Georgia to serve as an additional marketing and sales hub location for the company. Global headquarters for Comodo remain in Clifton, New Jersey.

The new Comodo Silicon Valley office is located at 5201 Great America Parkway, Suite 222, Santa Clara, California, 95054.
