Eastern Maryland County Commissioner Chooses Comodo Extended Validation SSL Certificates to Verify Site Identity

<p><strong>Jersey City, N.J. &mdash; Aug. 6</strong><br />Comodo, a global provider of identity- and trust assurance-management solutions, has announced that the Commissioner&#39;s Office of Carroll County in Maryland has chosen Comodo&#39;s EV SSL certificate to verify its Web site identity thus protecting taxpayers and residents&#39; sensitive information during online transactions. </p><p>The commissioner&#39;s office will employ EV SSL on its Web site in a concerted effort to heighten its online security and protect Carroll County residents from fraud and theft of personal information such as social security numbers and telephone numbers.<br /><br />&quot;Hackers and fraudsters run their operations everywhere, 24×7,&quot; said Mark Ripper of the commissioner&#39;s office. &quot;We have to go the extra mile to keep our residents&#39; personal information out of the wrong hands, and Comodo&#39;s EV SSL certificate provides an important safeguard to prevent this type of identity theft.&quot;<br /><br />EV SSL builds on the trust that the marketplace has in traditional SSL protection by adding a visual confirmation of a site&#39;s identity to end users through a green &quot;good to go&quot; indicator displayed in the Microsoft IE7 browser address bar. </p><p>Because EV SSL certificates help Internet users easily distinguish legitimate sites from phishing sites designed to steal sensitive information, Carroll County residents will now be better protected from such scams when conducting business online with the county government.<br /><br />&quot;Authentication as a standard should start at the top, with government agencies and authorities,&quot; said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief security architect. &quot;The commissioner&#39;s office of Carroll County is a stellar example of a local government that cares about the safety and well-being of its constituents.&quot;</p>
