Jersey City, NJ (PressExposure) October 17, 2007 -- Jersey City, NJ (October 17, 2007) -- Comodo announced today that the Comodo Forum has grown into a community of over 30,000 members and includes some of the best tips on PC/ Internet security. The Comodo Forum is a place where people share information, discuss technical security topics, and provide a venue where members can help shape the development of Comodo solutions.
Within the Comodo Forum a diverse group of members share ideas, techniques, and opportunities in desktop security. Members often assist other members in a broad array of security related topics so that members have a well informed network of people to advise them how to stay safe online. The Forum covers a wide set of topics including a feature wish list, product updates, sneak peaks at new products (BETA solutions), polls, and product reviews. Generally, topics are organized into four primary areas;
1. Input on pre-release, BETA products
2. User product support
3. community "wish list" for future product development and
4. Open forum for users to share general information.
"The beauty of the Comodo Forums is that it empowers users because we let users tell us what they like what they don't like to continually improve our product," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. "We are guided by our users' wishes in our product development and there are not many places where you can do that. We pride ourselves on the fact that we listen to everyone."
This strategy of encouraging users to help with development has been effective at creating solutions that generate significant industry awards and recognition. In fact, because Forum members are partners in the development process and often advocate Comodo solutions to the media, these solutions have garnered significant press. For example, Comodo Firewall Pro has been ranked as one of the most effective firewalls on the market today by independent sources such as PC Magazine, ComputerWorld and Matousec (http://www.matousec.com/projects/windows-personal-firewall-analysis/leak-tests-results.php#firewalls-ratings).
In addition to focusing on desktop security topics, Comodo CEO Abdulhayoglu, also shares company announcements and news through the Forum and offers members the opportunity to correspond directly to Comodo developers. "We are in constant communication with our members and I or the Comodo team often provide answers or ask questions of our members. I am always gratified at how responsive and supportive this community is to each other," continued Melih Abdulhayoglu. Further, the Forum moderators are an important part of the success of the Forum. They have gained the trust of the Forum community by maintaining full transparency and objectivity. It is through this balanced and uncensored approach that the Comodo Forum has become a âdestination of choiceâ for anyone interested in becoming informed about security and staying safe online.
