Comodo CA will be changing its company name and debut as a new brand this fall.

Comodo CA Will Rename and Rebrand the Company in Q4
 
In fall 2017, Comodo CA was acquired by Francisco Partners. Since then, we’ve significantly transformed the business to better serve our customers and partners, while introducing new innovative solutions including IoT PKI Manager and website backup and recovery through the acquisition of CodeGuard. We encourage you to check out recent announcements highlighting this growth.
 
Now we are taking the next step towards growing our own brand. This means that Comodo CA will be changing its company name and debut as a new brand this fall.
 
The move is a key part of delivering on our mission to be the world’s most trusted, innovative, and customer-centric partner for securing every website, digital communication, and connected device — helping organizations of any size confidently maximize the digital frontier.
 
We look forward to sharing additional news leading up to launching our new brand. In the meantime, below are some answers to some commonly asked questions.
