Comodo Automates SSL Deployment

Launches EV AUTO-Enhancer for automating the deployment and expanding the usability of EV SSL Certificates for Windows XP users

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Comodo, a global Certification Authority and leading provider of Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, announced today the successful deployment of a new patent-pending technology, EV AUTO-Enhancer™ - Automatic Deployment and Maintenance Technology. This patent-pending technology maximizes the value of using a Comodo EV SSL or EV SGC Certificate by automating the deployment and expanding the usability of EV SSL Certificates for Windows XP users. Now, no web design experts or added financial resources are needed to successfully deploy these high-security certificates, because this new technology eliminates the need for the extensive webpage updates required by our competitors' "EV beacon" solutions.

EV AUTO-Enhancer™ provides two further benefits: it ensures that the EV "green bar" is always seen the first time a user visits your website, and it enables the EV "green bar" to be seen even by those users to have disabled Javascript in their browsers. Our competitors' "EV beacon" solutions cannot offer either of these guarantees. Websites of all sizes can benefit significantly from the ease of integration and high level of effectiveness of Comodo's EV SSL and EV SGC certificates with EV AUTO-Enhancer™. In other words, not all EV SSL Providers are created equal and the introduction of Comodo's EV AUTO-Enhancer™ technology has widened the gap.

What is Comodo's EV AUTO-Enhancer™ and How Does it Work?

In order for end-users to instantly see the much-talked-about EV "green bar", a new EV root certificate for the relevant Certification Authority must be installed in the certificate storage facility of Internet Explorer 7. EV AUTO-Enhancer™ automatically installs Comodo's new EV root certificate into the trusted root store of the user's browser whenever an https session is initiated. This process is seamlessly carried out during the SSL handshake with the web server and is completely transparent to the end user. Unlike most EV certificates issued by other companies, our Certificates can see the green bar immediately.

Availability details:

  • Apache EV AUTO-Enhancer™: available now, compatible with Apache versions 1.3.x (with mod_ssl), 2.0.x and 2.2.x
  • IIS EV AUTO-Enhancer™: under active development or for compatibility with other webservers, please contact us.
