New York - 12 December 2003. Comodo have today finalized details of their ongoing relationship with Betrusted. In todays market where website spoofing is rife and phishing scams plague both public and professional users alike, both Comodo and Betrusted will continue to ensure the highest levels of validation are offered to their sectors of the market. Betrusted, backed by the financial security of BankOne, will ensure that the GTECyberTrust root certificate, used successfully by both Comodo and Betrusted will continue to be the preferred choice for the growing SSL protected e-commerce market.
The value of SSL can so easily be undermined by providers offering low cost alternatives on the pretence of completing a full validation of the end entity. It is imperative that the industry removes these providers by highlighting their flaws, says Steve Roylance, Technical Marketing Director for Comodo.
Comodo, through its InstantSSL range (www.instantssl.com) offers cost effective, fully-validated SSL Certificates with warranties. Comodo employs a stringent and highly efficient policy of full two-step validation for all SSL Certificates, verifying both domain name ownership and company legitimacy as part of the issuance process to ensure a safe and secure e-commerce infrastructure. Since the launch of InstantSSL in March 2002, Comodo has signed partnerships with over 2000 leading e-commerce providers.
