JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Comodo, a global Certification Authority and leading provider of Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, announced today that Apple Federal Credit Union, a not-for-profit member-owned cooperative serving more than 77,000 members in the Northern Virginia community has selected Comodo’s new technology, VerificationEngine (VE) to protect members from phishing and pharming attacks. In addition, Apple FCU will utilize other elements in Comodo’s flagship S.A.F.E. Solution (Secure and Authenticated Financial Engagements) including High Assurance SSL certificates, email certificates and HackerGuardian to ensure that Apple members can experience increased verification and security in online banking. Apple FCU chose Comodo as its authentication partner because Comodo’s credentials and expertise as a Certification Authority uniquely qualify it to deliver new technology for ensuring mutual authentication.

“The VerificationEngine solution that Comodo has introduced provides our members with a truly user-friendly authentication solution that allows them to conduct online transactions confidently”, said Mr. Juan Batista, VP of Information Technology of Apple FCU. “In today’s digital world, online fraud is dampening our members’ adoption of online financial services. This solves our customers’ issues while providing us with a solution that can be deployed quickly and for less than we thought possible.”
