Allow me to say that Melih's message was a bit vague from the beginning regarding future CIS development.
It would only take a few minutes of his precious time to enlighten us all on this discussion.
Not only vague but its from a year ago. Things do change over time.
Quoting comments from over a year ago, even if they are from Melih himself is irrelevant to the current situation and may not reflect their current intention with CIS.

Instead of relying on things of the past, communication should be clear from Staff to userbase regarding the plans for the future of CIS. Would cost nothing for Melih or another high ranked Staff member to write a post here explaining what actually is happening and what are their plans. Comodo is now Xcitium and based on Xcitium website, there is no such a thing as Xcitium for home customers.

So CIS future seems to be endangered. I would expect some people to show love and care for the CIS product and this cause and try to reach out to Melih or some other person (politely of course) to know more details.

But instead let's rely on the past and cherish it, seems like the Comodo Forums is made to live off of past things, just look at the huge list of products that are actually not supported anymore and not moved to the archived section. Even certain members quoting completely out of context and Off-topic comments from months ago, thinking they are making a point, and now even a Mod quoting an old comment. Almost everything here is old, to the point the Comodo Forums are beginning to look like a museum. No intention to offend anyone of course. :-TU

I think a bit much to ask. Do you read such plans from Kaspersky, from Symantec, from F-Secure, etc..? From past to  present at this time, comodo offers 100% protection. I repeat myself, that's all I need.  And again, what is the use of reading that CIS will be further developed, but we can't improve much at the moment, or no, CIS will not be further developed.

You can draw your own conclusions now. At the present time:

- no reactions
- no update

What does this mean for you? Time to go?

or:

- protection still at the highest level

- - PC, software - everything works
- no bluescreen (for me this was an annoying bug)
- firewall- disconnect/allow internet connection works (not before, I missed this functionality)

Either was worked on the last two bugs or this are signs that CIS was not abandoned.
What was the reason why it works now, I don't know.

The same thing is chewed over again and again. Decide. I did and now stay with comodo, unless security drops. A better feeling. Done.

Kaspersky, Symantec, F-Secure and the like get regular updates because those brands know that hackers don't sleep and are very good programmers.
Believing that CIS will protect forever 100% without further updates or improvements is like playing Russian roulette with your system.

'CIS protects 100% so we don't need updates' is the same logic as leaving the door of your house or your car unlocked because you live in a place with a low crime rate. :-X

Yes, I agree that CIS WONT protect you forever without further updates or improvements.  Thats is a fact.

comodo offers 100% protection.
My opinion is that currently comodo is as good as it gets, but I wouldn't say 100%.  I do get your the point

Currently, comodo is fine for now and they are behind on where it needs to be.  Eventually somewhere in the future it wont provide great protection. (nobody knows when that will be).  If and only If they eventually do provide a update, it'll be good to go.  If they don't, you eventually need to switch to something else.

But at the end of the day, complaining and whining about you want to hear from the CEO or about comodo is dead or it needs to be update (Post after post, month after month isnt going to get you anywhere)  Your point is well made here

I agree with you on that, there is no discrepancy. For me still 100%, but of course I do not know when a hacker discovers a hole. That would be a desaster if only then would be "fixed".

What I wrote is:

- in all the years more then a decade I never had malware on my PC = 100% protection by now for me

- Hackers don't sleep, updates therefore are necessery

- if the level of protection level gets lower I change to another program

No one says comodo don't need updates, but some find that the protection is still there (for me

My opinion is that currently comodo is as good as it gets, but I wouldn't say 100%. 

That was based on tests (100% of the used threats found) and my own experience (never problems with malware until now, so 100% protected, last 3 intusion attemps on my PC prevended).
But you are right: there is no 100% security anywhere.

last 3 intrusion attempts on my PC prevented
That sucks,  I had to deal with those issues too in the past, as for the rest of your post.  Thats better then I could ever write, Well said

This is everything I know

Comodo CIS Free version   v12.2.2.8012 (currently) - I have no idea when or if they will update it again

Comodo CIS PRO (the paid version) is currently on v12.2.4.8032 - The only difference between Free and PRO is the $500 guarantee not to be infected and tech support.  AS for the CIS component itself, i dont know the technical difference is as there is no change log for the Pro edition (It feels more polished, but it could be all in my head)  Comodo has always been horrible about giving update info on anything

Comodo's business side (Comodo client endpoint) which is basicly same as CIS but controlled by admins in a corporate environment (knows as itarian.com) is updated like every 2 months (I cant recall where I got that info from).

Please note I did not say the quote was a replacement but as close as you will get.

Also if you are waiting for a new release of CIS or any information about one, do not bother nothing is likely to happen in the near future.

The answer to that question is also encapsulated in this message written by anonymous :

The statement  "isnt going to get you anywhere" means there is no CIS roadmap nor a business plan, no CIS future, no new CIS releases, CIS isn't going anywhere anymore, there's just nothing but emptiness. This statement is inline with futuretech's statement.

You have to take care of your gloom Mr.
Your answers correspond to spam towards Comodo
It's not good of you
I invite you again to change protection and forget about Comodo
Thanks

You're not entirely wrong about that. Not a joke:

We travelled once to Italy with a bus company. In a parking space the driver said: "We arrived here." We wanted to get out with our bags. He went on to say: "You can leave them in the bus." When we were outside, he shut the doors and wanted to go with us to the guided tour. We said: You forgot to lock the bus. Answer: "Don't worry, nothing gets away here, the place belongs to the Mafia."

No  sources, only experience over the years I have been here.

I have learned the hard way over the years I have been here never expect anything and you will not be disappointed.

They have surprised me in the past, but I do not think it will happen this time.

I believe unless something bad happens with CIS it could be 6/12 months before the next release if then.
