New York 19th January 2005. Comodo, the security infrastructure specialists were delighted to be awarded the title of the worlds fastest growing CA in 2004 - a feat they also achieved in 2003.
The independent research carried out by Esoft inc analyzed servers worldwide and indicates that Comodos share of secured servers grew at a faster rate than any of its competitors and now accounts for over 8% of the total market. Steve Roylance, Technical Marketing VP Comodo Inc, commented that repeating the previous years successes demanded proactive measures in the increasing competitive CA marketplace:
Rock bands often complain about the difficult second album. Although the comparison may seem glib, the theory holds true for any business hoping to build upon an initial success. Maintaining the momentum we generated in 2003 involved a company wide commitment that Comodo was not going to rest on its laurels.
During the 2004-2005 period, Comodo successfully expanded and improved its business model - extending their portfolio of solutions whilst taking steps intended to ensure they become the pre-eminent force in the CA industry. Notable moves included the acquisition of high profile CA UserTrust and the provisioning of a fully integrated CA infrastructure for the new .pro TLD registrar Registry Pro. The continued development of complementary products such as VerificationEngine and TrustToolbar formed key strands in Comodos strategy to improve the transparency and security of online transactions. Anti-Phishing technologies such as Content Verification Certicates were developed to provide real time verification of website content such as brand logos and graphics.
