Comodo CA Brand Adds Data Centers in Six Countries, Helping Customers and Partners Protect Websites and Comply with GDPR
Comodo CA, the world’s largest commercial Certificate Authority and a leader in web security solutions, announced that its CodeGuard brand has expanded to six locations in EMEA and APAC in order to meet demand for its services internationally. Comodo CA acquired CodeGuard, Inc., a global leader in website monitoring, backup and disaster recovery, in August 2018.
CodeGuard enables business owners to reverse damage caused by intentional cyberattacks or unintentional impacts of development issues, content management errors and server crashes.
Founded in 2010, CodeGuard has seen increased demand from businesses seeking simple website backup and one-click recovery, as well as compliance with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). In effect since May 2018, GDPR mandates that organizations operating within the EU, as well as any organizations outside of the EU that offer goods or services to customers or businesses in the EU, ensure that personal data is gathered legally and under strict conditions. In addition, the organizations that collect and manage the data are obliged to protect it from misuse and exploitation, or face penalties for not doing so.
CodeGuard’s expansion of Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers, extends the company’s popular services beyond the U.S. to customers, hosting providers, and resellers located in:
“The tremendous synergies between CodeGuard and Comodo CA since our acquisition in Q2 are benefitting our resellers, SMB customers, and growing number of enterprise accounts,” said David Moeller, President of Comodo CA’s CodeGuard division. “2018 has been an exciting time for the company. We are on track to see over 100% YoY revenue growth, fueled by Comodo CA’s global channel team and increased demand throughout the world.”
