Group Of Multi-Ethnic Group Of Business People Holding PlacardsFor the first time in almost 20 years, Internet trust has a new leader!

This month, Comodo surged past perennial chart topper Symantec/Verisign in market share for issuing SSL Certificates. Today, one third of all web sites using SSL have chosen Comodo to protect their critical communication and build trust with customers.

At Comodo, we are deeply gratified that in these troubled times for Internet security so many have turned to Comodo for protection.  According to CEO Melih Abdulhayoglu, “we’ve done it through organic growth; by being committed to our customers and providing them the most trusted security solutions in the industry.  We’ve clearly done this for consumers and businesses, and now we are going to do this for the enterprise. “

Comodo CA is a trusted third party, trusted both by the subject (owner) of the certificate and by the party relying upon the certificate.  A W3Techs survey from February 2015 shows:

Comodo recognizes that this milestone has been made possible by our partners and customers who have placed their trust in us.  Comodo is striving to provide all enterprises with a rich ecosystem of interconnected, inter-operable security products and services that will help them succeed in the cyber war we are now engulfed in.

Never has the threat to civilized communication and free commerce been greater. Like the great navies of global powers past, Comodo secures the digital sea lanes of international commerce.

At the dawn of the industrial revolution Edmund Burke said “For evil to flourish, all that is necessary is for good men to do nothing”. Since 1998, we have known that doing nothing is not an option if the Internet Revolution is to achieve its full potential and enrich the lives of all of the citizens of planet earth.
