Jersey City, New Jersey (PressExposure) October 23, 2007 -- Comodo, a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, announced today that Info Security, a leading publication on security-related products and technologies, has named Comodo a finalist for the 2008 Global Product Excellence Award in the Authentication (Two Factor) technology category. Finalists were chosen based on a worldwide popular vote of end-users, channel partners and readers of Info Security Products Guide who were asked to choose finalists based on their innovation and ground-breaking approaches.
Comodo Two Factor (TF) Client Certificates User Authentication Solution is a high-performance two-factor solution that delivers innovative benefits to financial institutions and enterprise customers requiring a high level of user authentication. Key solution benefits include:
* Two factor authentication solution that leverages core PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) services. PKI is recognized as stable, mature, and one of the strongest forms of authentication available
* The low cost of the solution due to an established PKI infrastructure and digital certificate lifecycle management processes
* One of the easiest solutions for customers to adopt since once customers create their Digital IDs, they conveniently continue to use their existing usernames and passwords
* A highly flexible and configurable solution that can be deployed in days
Comodo's authentication solution was developed specifically to address the diverse, complex, and urgent needs of financial institutions. "The continuing need to authenticate online users is a critical business function that many customers have. Our goal with TF was to create a solution that adheres to the highest level of secure authentication practices but is also easy on consumers", commented Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. "This solution delivers as promised â an authentication solution that is secure, easy to adopt and easy to deploy. We are proud to be recognized as a key industry player whose products have been named finalist by Info Security Products Guide".
2008 Global Product Excellence and Outstanding Award winners will be honored on January 30, 2008 at Technosium 2008 during the Info Security Products Guide Global Awards ceremony at the Santa Clara Convention Center located in the heart of Silicon Valley, California, USA.
