Unless the Comodo Group has another 'good profit making product' to fund investment in the non CA side I don't see a bright future for these products.

I could be wrong.....lets hope I am.

I suppose I should have read the article posted:
https://www.enterprisetimes.co.uk/2017/11/01/francisco-partners-acquires-comodo-ca-business/
It's different from the other articles regarding business changes.

It does state:
What does this mean?

For staff at Comodo this is not a job loss moment. They should see greater investment in both Comodo CA and the rest of the Comodo Group. Abdulhayoglu made it clear to ET that they will continue to invest in both parts of the business

I think what's odd here is that this topic at hand has been posted by a member of the Comodo community. Why has there has been no "OFFICIAL" announcement posted from Comodo or by Melih prior?

Sounds about right to me. Let's both hope your wrong.

Eitherway more than likely with CIS controlled by a new owner (corporation) it well cease to be what it always has been. Sad if that happens. They will probaly turn it into another data mining product. Where people are the product and protection is the second concern like most IS/Malware products (excluding Emsisoft) available today.

It's been a good ride if it ends. Love CIS and this community.

Hi Guys
Only the CA (ssl certificate) business. No other business unit is affected.
CIS is still my baby :)

Valkyrie team is working day and night...literally to bring to you 4 hour SLA for any unknown executables!

When that happens, the world will be a different place in the Consumer Antivirus market.
