ID-Protect and Comodo Partner to Help Consumers Fight Growing Problem of Identity Theft

Jersey City, NJ (August 8, 2007) - Comodo, a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, announced today that it is partnering with ID-Protect, a U.K. based consumer advice site designed to provide consumers with information on security tactics that help prevent identity theft.

According to annual surveys co-sponsored by Javelin Strategy and Research and the Better Business Bureau, about nine million American adults become victims of identity theft each year.

"Providing unbiased information is core to our value proposition," said Julian Evan, Managing Director of ID- Protect.

We are pleased to join with Comodo and help distribute Comodo's Firewall Pro as a free security tool. Comodo provides a new level of technical expertise to benefit our audience." ID-Protect provides reviews on firewall and anti-virus software in addition to a step-by-step best practices approach for protecting identities from being stolen.

"Staying ahead of the fraudsters is a challenge for many consumers.
