Newest innovation enables users to safely interact with mission-critical applications on malware-infected devices, including PCs, Point-of-Sale systems and ATMs
Clifton, NJ, July 28, 2014 – Comodo, a leading Certificate Authority and Internet security provider, today announced the availability of Comodo SecureBox, a secure desktop application that enables users to safely interact with mission-critical applications on malware-infected devices, such as company computers, Point-of-Sale (POS) systems and ATMs, among others. Built on Comodo's highly robust application containment technology, Comodo SecureBox is part of Comodo's suite of leading enterprise security solutions.
Hackers and cybercriminals are constantly targeting end users through phishing and other attacks that use sophisticated malware to gain deeper access to sensitive data and corporate networks. Closing the gap left by traditional endpoint security solutions and anti-virus technologies, Comodo SecureBox protects users against these threats – such as keylogging, SSL sniffing, remote screen viewing, memory scraping, man-in-the-browser/middle attacks, zero-day malware, fund transfer fraud, data exfiltration and others – by providing a layer of protection that ensures certain activities are secured.
"SecureBox is particularly well-suited for businesses who need to ensure the security of third-party endpoints that are beyond the control of their IT organization," said Kevin Gilchrist, Comodo Vice President of Product Management. "Financial services companies, healthcare or health insurance companies, or any company that has a large supply chain where the supplier represents a possible vector for malware would benefit from SecureBox."
Unlike existing endpoint security solutions that seek to protect the device, Comodo SecureBox is designed to protect and run only trusted applications and assumes that the host environment is hostile or malware-infected. This unique approach to containerization differs from traditional containment solutions that seek to sandbox only malicious or untrusted applications.
Comodo SecureBox includes the following features:
Comodo SecureBox can be custom-built as a company-branded application for unique security needs and specifically tailored for end users.
Comodo SecureBox is part of Comodo's portfolio of products that provide businesses and consumers with the intelligent security, authentication and assurance services necessary to establish and ensure trust in online transactions.
