Comodo Unveils Free Products and Strategies for Creating a Highly Secure PC
On BreakfastBytes, a Popular NPR Show, Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO of Comodo, Describes How Consumers Can Keep their PCs Protected.
PR9.NET August 09, 2007 - Jersey City, NJ - Comodo, as a group of Internet security companies, announced significant enhancements to their portfolio of free desktop security and trust assurance solutions. The Comodo companies are committed to transforming desktop security from a "detection-based" model to a "prevention-based" model and have developed new technologies to encourage this change.
In a recent interview with National Public Radio's (NPR) BreakfastBytes hosted by Felicia King and Ray Koukari that aired on WGTD in Wisconsin (8/04/07), Melih Abdulhayoglu CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo explained how recent innovations in Comodo's desktop security solutions are changing the face of desktop security. Unlike other security vendors, Comodo's approach uniquely identifies safe applications rather than simply detecting and blocking harmful applications. This approach employs a white list technology and only allows trusted applications access to the PC.
