Jersey City, NJ (May 31, 2007) - Comodo, a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, today announced that its Firewall Pro topped the list in Matousec's (www.matousec.com) May 24, 2007 leaktest of 11 leading firewalls, and was one of only two to receive an "excellent" rating. Of a possible total score of 9,625 based on 77 various leak scenarios, Comodo scored 9,475, making it the highest scoring firewall available on the market today. Comodo offers Firewall Pro for free in its commitment to ensure that every computer has the best protection possible.
Symantec, widely known for its Norton suite of products, did not perform as well. Norton Internet Security 2007 scored only 3,100 of the 9,475 possible points, earning it a rating of "very poor". Previously, Norton's standalone Personal Firewall 2006, when independently tested, scored 4,600, thus making its latest version an even weaker solution than previous versions according to the Matousec leaktest. McAfee's Internet Security Suite 2006 placed even lower in the leaktest than Norton, scoring only 2,325, also earning a spot in the "very poor" category.
"It's a wonderful two-part story," says Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. "The first is the fact that we offer a firewall for free, when many competitors charge for theirs, and often too much. The second part is the fact that Comodo's Firewall Pro is the best available, and you don't have to take our word for it. The results speak for themselves."
