Company Raises SSL Slice to 16%

Comodo Inc., based in Jersey City, NJ, with additional offices in the UK, Japan, and Israel, has established itself as the second largest High Assurance Certification Authority, a market that provides SSL certificates to Internet businesses.

“The SSL protocol, when delivered via an efficient and cost effective High Assurance authentication system continues to prove itself as an effective ubiquitous solution to the issue of privacy on the Internet”, said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect at Comodo. “We are pleased to see the recognition from the market of the Comodo value innovations of price performance and delivery.”

Silicon Valley-based Verisign, for its part, states that it secures more than 450,000 web servers with SSL, and that “47 out of the (world’s) top 50 e-commerce websites trust Verisign SSL technology.”
