To Help eMerchants Combat New Types of Online Fraud, Comodo Delivers New Classes of Online Protection within its Identity and Trust Assurance Suite of Security Solutions.As fraudsters get more funding and sophistication, SMBs need best practices and best technology to compete

PR9.NET June 05, 2007 - Jersey City, NJ - Comodo, a global Certification Authority and leading provider of Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, today announced that it is committed to protecting online merchants from a new wave of fraudsters who are better funded and are using newer technology and techniques. These emerging classes of fraudsters are especially targeting the smaller or newer merchants because these enterprises seldom have the financial or IT resources to protect themselves against the increasing levels of scammer sophistication. Some recently publicized frauds include the use of Google AdWords where they drive traffic to mimicked sites, thus potentially damaging the reputation of legitimate eMerchants (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18348120/). In another new scam variation, fraudsters are threatening smaller eMerchants with a denial-of-service (DOS) attack if these merchants do not pay heavy "fees". Recently, such a gang was sentenced to 8 years in prison by Russian authorities for this type of activity, (http://www.newbusiness.co.uk/article/17/05/2007/virus_vulnerability.html. Both are examples of a step change in the level of confidence fraudsters have and the resources available to them.

Comodo has responded with its cutting-edge suite of Identity and Trust Assurance (ITA) products and solutions to mitigate online threats. Comodo's ITA for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) is a suite designed to address diverse trust threats. The suite includes:

* EV SSL certificates that deliver new level of site identity assurance through a highly visible green indicator delivered through the new security browsers such as Microsoft IE7.
* Built on the research which confirms that site seals increase customer conversion, Comodo TrustLogo provides verifiable proof of the merchant's authenticity and the authenticity of the TrustLogo on the site with a simple mouse-over. No other site seals provide this level of verifiable trust.
* To protect servers from hackers, HackerGuardian, a vulnerability scanning solution, performs more than 14,000 daily tests and offers remedial advice when a threat is detected. Servers that are secure display a HackerGuardian TrustLogo providing visible reassurance of a site's server safety.
* PCI scan compliancy certification to prove adherence to PCI industry standards which assures secure handling of sensitive customer credit card information

"Internet scammers are increasingly well-funded and well-organized to launch sophisticated social engineering attacks, abusing the trust that consumers have in businesses of any size. These risks threaten to strain the Internet's growth as consumers cut back their online transactions and move toward more conservative online behavior," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, President and CEO of Comodo. "Comodo developed its ITA solutions to keep small and medium-sized businesses one step ahead of the criminals."

Comodo offers the ITA suite at retail prices starting from $79 so that businesses of all sizes can deliver a highly trusted online environment that is authenticated and secure. The ITA suite is one of part of Comodo's strategy to transform from a security-oriented model into a strategic conversion process using authentication for increased trusted transactions.
