Move reflects company growth, which includes 45 percent year-over-year growth in channel and partner business
CLIFTON, N.J. - February 20, 2018 - Comodo CA, a worldwide leader in digital identity solutions, today announced that it has expanded its global presence with a new office in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Located in the Kanata Research Park near Ottawa, the new office sits in the heart of the Canadian technology and R&D hub - recognized as a center of excellence for knowledge-based industries, innovation, and a diverse range of technology fields, from wearables to the Internet of Things, cybersecurity and more. The new location enables multi-language expansion including Spanish, Hindi, Korean, Mongolian, Chinese, Russian, Hebrew, French, Arabic, and Lebanese. Comodo CA has fully skilled support staff in the U.K, U.S, Canada and India to provide support across all time zones.
"We are seeing tremendous growth across all segments of our business and this expansion will add capacity, additional language support and senior leaders," said Bill Holtz, CEO of Comodo CA. "Expansion into Ottawa is attractive because it is a highly innovative and collaborative technology hub. This expansion allows us to continue our tremendous growth without compromising support to our customers. We will continue making investments in innovation and leadership, superior service levels and continued expansion in SSL, IoT and solutions for full certificate lifecycle management."
The expansion adds to Comodo CA's growing list of accomplishments which include:
- The company's acquisition by Francisco Partners and strategic expansion of leadership resources through the addition of industry veterans and leaders to spearhead worldwide channel and global business development initiatives.
- Addition of dozens of new channel partners attracted to Comodo's industry-leading platform and capacity, and broader product offerings that allow them to sell additional value-added security services to their clients
- Significant investment in technology that improved service levels and added the capacity and automation needed to handle the rapid growth in the CA market driven by the universal move to HTTPS website security and the need for mass issuance of certificates for IoT devices
- Competitive upgrades that included one-year free equivalent certificates for all existing Symantec, Thawte, and GeoTrust certificates affected by Google Chrome distrust issues
Google's strategy to identify all HTTP web pages as "Not Secure" and their recent action in removing trust from Symantec certificates have contributed to Comodo's extensive year-over-year growth.
