Jersey City, New Jersey – (The Hosting News) – January 10, 2006 – Global identity and trust assurance company, Comodo Inc., has launched an initiative to help charitable organizations protect their donors from website data theft and online fraud.
The initiative was the result of extensive research into identifying Internet fraud segment clusters. Based on experience as a certification authority, Comodo was able to ascertain that Not-for-Profit organizations were the new targets of phishers and pharmers.
Judy Shapiro, VP of Marketing at Comodo explained, ”We’ve noticed a huge increase in attacks on charities by an ever more indiscriminate cyber-criminal fraternity. As a certification authority, we have a duty to help these worthy organizations get the donations they urgently need. Our free identity and trust assurance solutions will quickly provide complete transactional, infrastructural and anti-phishing protection for non-profit websites.”
Comodo expects that over 3,000 Not-for-Profit organizations will benefit from this initiative.
Comodo’s identity and trust assurance offering enables Not-for-Profit organizations to enjoy the same total security as high profile retail and banking websites worth thousands of dollars and includes:
Free High Assurance SSL Certificate – High Assurance SSL certificates ensure any data passed between the donor and the server is 256 bit encrypted and cannot be intercepted. Furthermore, that the charity has been vetted and is a legitimate entity.
*Free Content Verification Certificate – CVC’s give donors the ability to unequivocally ascertain the authenticity of charity websites by simply moving their mouse over the website logo. Only the genuine site will display a green border around the browser.
*Free Daily Server Vulnerability Scanning – Comodo’s HackerGuardian service will conduct daily scans of the target server to identify and eliminate potential weaknesses. Charities will also receive an unspoofable site seal that certifies their servers as secure.
*Online fax service, TrustFax, at cost – Comodo will offer the service, which features fax broadcasting and high volume traffic capabilities, at cost price.
