Testmypcsecurity.com has become a respected "Virtual Security Community Watch Group" that is reflective of a diverse set of testers who better represent real world environments.

PR9.NET April 09, 2008 - Jersey City, NJ - Comodo, a leading security company, announced today that the recent launch of Testmypcsecurity.com has ignited a new model in security that is, in effect, acting as a "Virtual Security Community Watch Group", helping community members with issues and questions about computer security. Importantly this site, which will house one of the largest collections of computer security tests, provides an independent presentation of test results from a diverse set of community testers. Its credibility is driven by the fact that all information is gathered and created by the users, for the users and does not promote any specific commercial interest whatsoever. Comodo provides the infrastructure for the site but in no way affects the information represented.

Testmypcsecurity.com was launched as a new website to address an emerging concern in the security industry - the lack of an independent testing resource that gathers all of the tests and testers needed to objectively assess the effectiveness of PC security solutions. Existing testing sites provide a limited number of tests with information that is often dated and reflective a very limited set of testers. The appeal of Testmypcsecurity.com is that it provides a broad array of computer security tests, including firewall leak and Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) tests that all community members can use for testing purposes. The tests were created as a safe way for users of all abilities to determine the effectiveness of their security software at preventing viruses from damaging a computer system. This approach permits a broader set of testers that can post their results for all community members to see and is likely to be more representative of the "real world". Further, results are posted almost immediately and are more current than many other testing sites that delay posting results for weeks or even months at a time. The site been highly successful at attracting a wide variety of testers and the site actively encourages site visitors to join the community as testers.

Testmypcsecurity.com was designed to be both a testing and education resource for users and includes:

* Detailed and technical explanations about firewall leak tests and HIPS testing,
* Downloads of individual and batch security individual tests,
* Information on other people's test results and comments, and
* The ability to become part of the Test My PC Security testing community.

"Testmypcsecurity.com creates a new type of community - a virtual community of like minded people concerned with creating better desktop security for all." said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. "The power of a community to test security software and help other community members stay safe represents the new way forward in online security. This type of community can only operate effectively if the environment is independent of commercial interests. That's what we created with Testmypcsecurity.com and it's why the site has exceeded our expectations in terms of impact and influence within the security industry."
