CLIFTON, N.J., June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Comodo, a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions and the worldwide leader in digital certificates, today announced that a total of seven former Symantec and Verisign SSL certificate industry veterans and leaders have now joined the company to spearhead worldwide channel and global business development initiatives.
Collectively, this team was the driving engine behind Symantec's Website Security channel business, a unit that at one time represented about a quarter of the total revenue for the company's Website Security business. Together, they bring more than 80 years of experience to Comodo, and have used that expertise to accelerate channel innovation and hyper scale Comodo's revenue and market share growth.
Today, Comodo is the industry's leading SSL certificate authority worldwide, with a market share of 41 percent, and is used by 15 percent of all SSL websites, according to research from W3Techs.
"The creation of this brand-new team is one of many moves Comodo is making to develop a world-class partner organization," said Comodo President Michael Fowler. "In addition to bringing on some of the best in the industry, we have big plans to make a sweeping set of changes to our partner program, create innovative marketing tools and programs, improve how we support partners and become the easiest to do business with in the industry. We are thrilled to have brought this entire high-powered team on board. They will provide invaluable insights into security channel needs and execution, as well as how Comodo can accelerate its already rapid worldwide growth. It's an exciting time to be a Comodo partner."
The new channel team will also lead bringing Comodo cWatch Web to market through the channel. Comodo cWatch Web is the only Managed Security Service (MSS) for websites and applications that combines a Web Application Firewall, malware detection and removal, PCI scanning and compliance, a secure Content Delivery Network and Security Information and Event Management, all in a single solution that is fully managed 24x7x365 by a team of certified security analysts from a centralized Security Operations Center. "Comodo cWatch Web will enable our partners to grow beyond offering encryption for websites and capitalize on a booming MSS market without taking on additional costs or infrastructure. It's a game changer for our partners," Fowler continued. cWatch Web will be available to partners in the coming months.
