I still cannot see how all the other Comodo products are going to survive.

Francisco Partners bought ONLY the CA business.
They are going to want a Return On Investment.

If the CA side profits were funding the R & D of the free or semi free products
how is the same level of investment going to continue?

One or two products have been mentioned by Melih, but this forum has a lot longer list.

I find it so strange that you guys didn't publish anything regarding this matter on your website.

So just a blog post....nothing on the comodo.com newsroom section.

And still no assurances regarding the bulk of the Comodo products.

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

If Melih sells COMODO as a whole one day, I believe that will be it for me and COMODO. It is because NO ONE has the mind, good intentions and success in creating Real Trust as Melih does/will.

Wish you all the best Melih in all your projects! :-TU

Its impressive  :)  When it comes to Certificates, Comodo slaps the competition around.   Comodo doesn't set the bar for standards, Comodo is the bar

It's hard being a crooked Admin when the files won't pass an md5checksum test.  But like any other good crooked Admin it can be done, it just takes time(and lots of it) and a few aspirins

Hi Melih

I'm sorry to hear that you (Comodo) are leaving the CA market :'(. I guess when you've reached the top, you need new challenges ;D. I wish you all the best in your new venture and hope to hear one day, that you reach #1 in that area too.

A big THANK YOU for all the great products you have provided us over the years for free and continue to do so :-TU. As a Linux user now, I can honestly say, the main reason I use Windows at home now is because of your products (CIS/CCAV). Good luck!!!

Could someone please let me know who bought Comodo and if it is sold will the next company still further develop CIS and will it still be free. Melih was always the driving force within the company and when its all said and done Melih will always be Comodo just like Steve Jobs is Apple even though he isn't with us anymore. I am not happy to hear about this if it is true. Can somebody please confirm my questions.

Thats is great to hear. Now the question is how will Comodo make money considering the CA part of the business was a major source of revenue. Will we start having to pay for CIS. I sincerely hope not.
