Support National Cyber Security Awareness Month
<strong>Jersey City, N.J. — Oct. 24</strong><br />Comodo, a security company, announced that it is participating with the National Cyber Security Division (NCSD) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) to support National Cyber Security Awareness Month. This effort is a national campaign focused on educating the American public, businesses, schools and government agencies on ways to secure their computers against all forms of online threats and is an important initiative that helps protect people from malware and other online threats that undermine online security.<br /><br />The goal of National Cyber Security Awareness Month is to educate everyday Internet users on how to “Protect Yourself Before You Connect Yourself”, by taking simple and effective steps. These steps teach Internet users how to safeguard one's computer from the latest online threats and offer advice on responding to potential cybercrime incidents. One important component of safe computing includes using prevention security software such as Comodo's free suite of security products. This security suite includes Comodo's award-winning firewall, Comodo Firewall Pro, which was named an Editor's Choice in PC Magazine. Comodo's firewall has been tested by independent labs and found to be “leakproof” — a technical metric that tests the protection strength of the firewall.<br /><br />”Our philosophy of empowering end users to be proactive in cybersecurity is very much in alignment with the National Cyber Security Division,” said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and chief security architect of Comodo. “We support these types of initiatives by offering a full array of free desktop security products that are often better protection than paid versions. There is no charge to use our solutions. To date, nearly 3 million users have downloaded our free solutions, but our goal is to protect every computer around the world. That way people can use the Internet as it was originally intended: to promote education, information and commerce collaboration globally. We are proud to be actively working toward that goal.”<br /><br />Comodo Firewall Pro is a free solution that has been ranked as one of the most effective firewalls on the market today by independent sources such as PC Magazine, ComputerWorld and Matousec.<br /><br />Comodo firewall is available for free download at http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com.
