September 11, 2018

ROSELAND, N.J., Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comodo CA, a worldwide leader in digital web security solutions, and Korea Information Certificate Authority (KICA), a leading company in the integrated certification industry in Asia, today announced the extension of their exclusive relationship into two additional geographies, including Vietnam and Indonesia. As an exclusive distributor in these regions, Comodo CA will leverage KICA’s expertise with localized sales and support in the region to further expand its global web security offerings.

The expanded partnership will enable KICA to exclusively offer Comodo CA TLS/SSL certificates to thousands of businesses across the Republic of Korea, Vietnam and Indonesia.

TLS/SSL is a standard security protocol that establishes encrypted links between a web server and a browser, ensuring that all communication that occurs between a web server and browser(s) remains encrypted, and therefore private. Comodo CA’s full range of certificate types and options – now available to KICA customers in additional APAC countries, include:

-- Extended Validation (EV) Certificates -- Organization Validation (OV) Certificates -- Domain Validation (DV) Certificates -- Wildcard Certificates -- Multi-Domain Certificates (MDC) -- Unified Communications Certificates (UCC)

“We have historically had great success with our Comodo CA partnership, enabling us to sell high volumes of digital certificates to organizations of all sizes, across many industries,” said Mr. Sangjun Kim, CEO of KICA. “The expanded relationship enables KICA to exclusively offer a variety of certificates from the world’s largest and longest-standing CA.”
