Nice job guys, keep it up.

BUG: >:(

I am testing CESM on a “Windows Home Server HP-EX-470” running Windows 2003 SBS. The CESM installs fine, but will not manage “Windows 7 Home Premium” clients due to the fact that the option “Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level” cannot be set to “Send LM & NTLM, use NTLMv2 if negotiated”, on Windows 7 Home Premium, due to the lack of “Local Security Policy” (secpol.exe) not included in this version of Windows, but “Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate” do have access to “Local Security Policy” (secpol.exe).

So, in conclusion, there are two problems.

1)Your documentation and users guides for CESM “DOES NOT STATE” which versions of “Windows 7” can be managed by CESM, and CESM WILL NOT manage Windows 7 Home Premium.
2)You should notify customers, before installation begins, which OS’s can and cannot be managed by Endpoint Security.

I will now have to Uninstall CESM from my server, as all of my client computers run “Windows 7 Home Premium” unless you fix this bug.

There are also a great number of “English miss-spellings” contained in both the .pdf’s and the “User Dialogs” of CESM, which need to be corrected to provide clarity to end users on technical issues.

This product is not ready for release to the general public and should not be sold until these items are addressed.

I would like to become a “Formal Beta Tester” for Comodo, specifically on both “CESM” and “Comodo Internet Security Pro” in exchange for free licensing of your products.

I think I can help you solve these issues and make your product a first rate security suite.

Just a mental note. Comodo uses “too much of the color RED in both its website and product. The color RED scares most folks, as they are used to seeing RED as a WARNING and as a DANGER SIGN, especially when used as a logo to verify a “Website” as SAFE. You should consider changing this color to BLUE or some other neutral color.

Feel free to contact me for more information.
