Comodo Trustconnect Makes CyberShopping Safe This Season

CyberShopping Safety is a Must This Holiday Season (December 08, 2010)
DMN Newswire--2010-12-8--JERSEY CITY, NJ, December 8, 2010 - Comodo, ( a leading Internet security

organization, is cautioning consumers to use an ounce of prevention while shopping this

holiday season by avoiding transactions via public Wi-Fi systems such as those found in

airports, hotels or local coffee shops due to increased Internet security risks. With

more than 35 million active users, Comodo has earned the trust of consumers around the

world, and advises them that by using products such as TrustConnect on their laptop,

consumers can be safe when making purchases online because they are protected.

CyberMonday results for previous years indicate that more and more Americans are shopping

online for holiday gifts, according to recent reports.

"During this season of holiday buying, you don't want to unknowingly give away your

credit card information by not having your laptops protected with an extra level of trust

as an added precaution" said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief security officer.

"Without Comodo TrustConnect on your laptop, hackers can have a field day with laptop

users on Public Wi-Fi systems who become easy prey to these bad guys trolling for

unprotected credit card information," he said. "You would never intentionally provide a

criminal with your personal and private information. They would probably take your

information and use it to take whatever they could from you."

Comodo TrustConnect virtual private network (VPN) keeps users information private,

secure, and out of the hands of cyber-criminals during an online session. Wherever

someone is located, whatever type of hardware, whether using a public Wi-Fi connection or

not, Comodo TrustConnect keeps users securely connected and their identity and

information private. No one can intercept or steal any information sent or received

during an online session with the software installed. They can't even determine where the

information is coming from. Comodo TrustConnect will keep information private and secure.

Comodo TrustConnect makes surfing the Web safe while at coffee shops, hotels and

airports. Website addresses, instant messaging, personal information, plain text

usernames and passwords and other important information may be broadcast unencrypted when

using these publicly accessible wireless Internet connections. Cyber criminals can easily

intercept these broadcasts. TrustConnect creates a shield around your laptop, desktop or

handheld. It prevents criminals from attacking or scanning your system from your local

network, and encrypts all of your traffic destined for the Internet.

Comodo TrustConnect also secures a customer's Wi-Fi at home as well protecting against

"Wardriving"?are attacks by people snooping in on your home Wi-Fi from the street, or if

you have systems at home that are infected with a virus, those also can have access to

your network.

Powerful Simplicity

Comodo TrustConnect is a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Virtual Private Network and uses

128-bit encryption. Setting up Comodo TrustConnect is easy, as it works on most operating

systems (Windows, Mac OS X) as well as with most firewall applications. Typical setup
