Comodo and CONDYN announce strategic partnership

Issue 2 2020 News

Comodo has announced a new partnership with Connectivity Dynamics T/A CONDYN, a provider of security, productivity and data protection solutions to South Africa and selected other African markets (Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Zambia, Mauritius, and Malawi). The partnership allows CONDYN to promote Comodo’s portfolio of security and threat-intelligence to South Africa and neighbouring territories.

The Comodo platform is an ‘Active Breach Protection’ platform. Built on a portfolio of patent pending technologies, Comodo uses the three pillars of endpoint security, managed detection and response, and network/perimeter security, to implement a highly secure, ‘zero-trust’ protection framework on customer networks. Its ‘never trust, always verify’ approach means all network traffic is continuously inspected, that every file is treated as potential malware, and every user viewed as a possible threat agent.

Only after proving themselves trustworthy are these actors given network or endpoint access. This prevents breaches and infections from day-zero malware which evade the ‘detection-only’ mechanisms of other systems, minimising risk and removing security complexity for clients. This contrasts with platforms whose security is derived from detecting already-known threats, an approach destined to fail.

“We are delighted to forge this new relationship with CONDYN and look forward to years of mutual success with a partner who truly understands the unique challenges of the African market,” said Fatih Orhan, SVP of Technology at Comodo. “We’ve seen tremendous adoption from MSPs across the globe, who are taking advantage of our platform to help clients of all sizes to reduce licensing fees, improve security and increase business performance. As a long-established and successful IT solutions provider, CONDYN has demonstrated it has the market knowledge, technical expertise, and relentless drive to tailor our services to the needs of its clients.”

“Comodo’s active breach protection platform offers our clients an unparalleled level of security and a truly ‘set-and-forget’ experience which is unique in the industry”, said Jorina Van Rensburg, CEO of CONDYN. “We are elated to partner with Comodo and proud to offer a platform that actually takes security seriously and delivers on its promise!”
