Comodo Rebrand - What to Know


Sectigo Image

When a company goes through a major rebranding, people tend to have a lot of questions. For instance, with the ComodoCA Name Change that’s taking place, many Secure128.com users are wondering if the switch is simply about branding and creating a new image, or if the actual projects are changing along with the company name. Don’t panic: If you’re wondering whether your life is going to be turned upside down but the ComodoCA Name Change, we’ve got you covered. Here are some things to keep in mind during the transition.

Yes, Comodo Is Changing Its Brand Name


When the private equity firm Francisco Partners acquired Comodo Group’s certificate technology, the company felt that there might be some confusion regarding the acquired business’s two different names, Comodo Group and Comodo CA. You can imagine how having two similar names can lead to such confusion, especially online. Instead of juggling two different names and providing the same service, the company is taking this opportunity to do a full rebrand as Sectigo. There will be new logos, a new website, and a better user experience in general. While that might seem intimidating to some, here’s why the Comodo Products rebranding isn’t all that scary after all.

No, The Products Are Not Changing


While Sectigo might sound shiny and new, don’t worry: None of the actual Comodo products provided by Secure128 are changing. There won’t be any messy switchover or conversion to a new platform. What will be changing, along with the name of the brand, are the names of the products themselves to create consistency with the company’s new image. For instance, instead of ComodoSSL, the exact same product will be available as SectigoSSL.

Yes, Your Products Will Still Be Supported


What all this means for you is fairly simple: If you purchased a ComodoSSL certificate from Secure128.com, it will still be valid until the original expiration date. It will simply be known as a Sectigo product. You’ll have the same quality, the same compatibility, the same functionality you expect from Comodo Products. You won’t lose out on the same quality you’ve invested in. While a rebranding might look different and feel different, the bottom line is that your certificates will be fully supported and you won’t have to be saddled with any messy transition errors. In short: If you’ve gotten a Comodo certificate, the only thing changing will be the name and image.

What Do I Need To Do?


Not a thing. The transition, for users, will be relatively painless. What will change, however, is the appearance of the Comodo brand to Sectigo on the Secure128.com website. With the transition to Sectigo, our website will soon experience a new product page and shopping cart, so you’ll have a better customer experience using the new web interface.

Still, changes can be difficult. If you need help with the transition or have questions you need answered, don’t hesitate to reach out to us by online chat or email. As always, we’re here to help. You can also follow Secure128 on facebook for further updates.
