thesiliconreview-steve-subar-president-ceo-comodo-2018In a world where preventing all cyber attacks is impossible, Comodo Cybersecurity delivers an innovative cybersecurity platform that renders threats useless, across the LAN, web, and cloud.

The Comodo Cybersecurity platform enables customers to protect their systems and data against even military-grade threats, including zero-day attacks. Based in Clifton, New Jersey, Comodo Cybersecurity has a 20-year history of protecting the most sensitive data for both businesses and consumers globally.

Comodo Cybersecurity's technology is precise, vigorous, and tailored to solve problems without downtime or undue stress. It renders an almost immediate verdict on the status of an unknown file, so it can be handled accordingly by either software or human analysts. This shift from reactive to proactive is what makes Comodo Cybersecurity unique and gives them the capacity to protect all domains of business activity and threat—from network to web to cloud—with confidence and efficacy.

This fast and competent technology provides a seamless user experience and promotes ongoing customer trust. And, it recognizes an important reality: while you cannot prevent 100% of malware – you can render malware useless.

Comodo Cybersecurity Products: Security from Every Angle

Cybercriminals work every angle to infiltrate systems, steal data, and disrupt operations. That's why Comodo Cybersecurity offers a comprehensive platform of cybersecurity capabilities to protect your network, applications, data, and users from every angle – across the LAN, Web, and Cloud.

Endpoint Protection

  • The Risk - From a cybersecurity perspective, there are three types of files: those that are a known to be good, those that are known to be malicious, and the unknown. When you know a file is good, you can let it run. When you know a file is bad, you can block it. It's the unknown files that create the challenge—and all malware starts out as an unknown
  • The Solution - Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) delivers patent-pending auto-containment, where unknown executables and other files that request runtime privileges are automatically run in a virtual container that does not have access to the host system's resources or user data.
  • The Result - They run just as well as they would on the host system, making it seamless from the end-user perspective, but they cannot damage or infect the native system. AEP uses real-time analysis—including antivirus scanning, behavioral analysis, and a global threat cloud—to return a good/bad verdict within 45 seconds for 95% of the files submitted.

Web & Email Security

The best cybersecurity strategies include layers of security controls. Comodo Dome is a suite of modular tools offering enterprise-level security for the any-size organization.

Prevent Phishing and Email-Based Threats. Users are bombarded by a constant onslaught of spam and it's a productivity killer. But that's not the worst of it. Not only does the massive volume of spam chew up email bandwidth without adding any value whatsoever, there are a lot of malicious threats hiding in much of the spam traffic trying to get in. Comodo Dome Anti-Spam provides an array of capabilities designed to prevent unwanted email from entering your network in the first place.

Application Containment

It's one thing to secure endpoints inside your network. But what about all the customers, partners, and on-the-go employees who need to access your applications from the outside? You simply cannot ensure that all these users have implemented security controls to your standards. You can, however, protect the application itself. Comodo SecureBox uses containerization technology to "wrap" applications—such as point-of-sale systems; ATM software; and enterprise, financial, and government applications—and drop them into environments of questionable security. This allows access to users, but not to any malware that may have infected the users' systems.

PKI & TLS/SSL Certificate Mgmt.

Securing and encrypting network traffic is critical for protecting confidentiality and privacy—and requires a certificate management approach that's comprehensive and efficient. Comodo simplifies the discovery, procurement, installation, and renewal of certificates across your network.

  • Instant SSL certificate
  • Extended validation certificate (EV SSL)
  • Wildcard Certificate

Information Technology Systems Management

Today's IT environments are highly complex with a lot of moving parts that require constant updating, provisioning, and occasionally, fixing.

Comodo ONE is a complete, scalable IT management platform that offers a comprehensive suite of security and IT management tools—including remote monitoring and management, patch management, mobile device/application management, advanced endpoint security, backup, web/email protection, network monitoring, and more—under a single pane of glass.

Website Security

Whether your website is a transaction-based revenue generator or simply an online introduction to your company, it's an important digital asset that needs to be protected. A hacked site can cause severe damage to your reputation and your bottom line. Comodo cWatch gives you a team of always-on certified cybersecurity professionals to protect your website, web servers, and web applications 24x7 with early detection, immediate remediation, and proactive preventive measures.
