CIS becoming paid?
« on: August 23, 2019, 03:05:04 AM »
It seems there is no way to download the Free Premium version from Official Website anymore (just a bunch "UPGRADE" buttons all over the place, which leads to CIS Pro acquisition page).

Websites for Comodo Firewall or Comodo Antivirus free versions are OK, problem is with CIS Premium page.


Mod edit
It has become very hard to find download links to free Comodo security products at www.comodo.com. We will post links to the free versions in this topic to help users to find them:
https://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/firewall-new.php
https://antivirus.comodo.com/free-internet-security-software.php
https://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/internet-security-pro-suite.php again scroll down to see the 3 different versions to choose from, one of which is the free one.

When a page changes to no longer support download of the free version I will strike it in the above list. Eric
Restored the Free AV download link which is now back. Ploget

OP edit
[at]Fatih Orhan from Comodo just confirmed at Itarian forums that CIS Free still exists, websites are being updated and Links to free version will be available on Wednesday.

Mod edit:
I got a pm from Shane:
Hi Eric,

The pages for CIS Free will go back live tomorrow.

Thanks, I will save that link for using in the future.

I wonder if the "problem" in the page Linked in my post was indeed a mistake? or are they planning to turn CIS into paid software? :o

The way still exists but more hidden:
Official Website -> "PERSONAL" page -> "PC Security Protection - Free" link.
(The same as link above)

Yes but average users or non-english speaking users might find difficult to do that trick. The page is for Downloading CIS Premium (Free internet security) yet there are only "UPGRADE" buttons in it to buy the Pro version...

Mistake? Bad marketing decision? IDK it's just not a good move from Comodo in my opinion. I hope they fix that.

I find it deplorable when a company succumbs to these type of campaigns. I recently needed to look up the standard cable tv package of the cable provider and it took me effort to locate it. It was almost buried in favor of more expensive interactive package with lot's of HD channels.

Actually I find it very normal! https://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/free-internet-security.php

You're obviously going to click on whatever heading in which you're interested, be it SSL, Enterprise or Personal. Click on Personal then all of your choices are there, including the free

There are a lot more complicated websites than that out there.  8)

I do wonder why the link was changed from "Free Download" to a link that directs to the Purchase page though.

I downloaded the installer from there and the installer said "Non 7z Archive" but the links in the Forum still work though.

I agree 100%. This is not a good marketing strategy.

Indeed, but the user accessed a page for Downloading CIS Premium (Free Internet Security) yet in this page there are just "UPGRADE" buttons, this is somewhat misleading. I remember there used to be a "Free Download" option in this page some time ago, seems it was removed/replaced by those "UPGRADE" buttons. Other users also mentioned this:

I get that they need to sell CIS Pro but they should still offer a small "Free Download" Link below the first "UPGRADE" button, would be more adequate in my opinion.
