Comodo, a certificate authority and Internet security company, announced it has secured an exclusive agreement to provide SSL certificates for one of Europe's largest Web-hosting companies: Host Europe. The partnership will enable present and future clients of Host Europe to benefit from the security and assurance generated by Comodo digital certificates.

It provides a comprehensive range of services including shared server hosting, dedicated servers, managed services, server co-location, global domain name registration and a bespoke range of e-services to the enterprise and SME markets.
Host Europe won the German Internet industry Award as Best Internet Hoster in 2005 and Webhoster with the Best Technical Performance and Usability and Best Business Hoster in 2007. A driving factor behind Host Europe's continued success has been the development of close working relationships and key partnerships with leading technology companies that help it provide its customers with unrivalled levels of reliability and quality of service.
"As one the largest Web-hosting service providers in Europe, we are constantly looking for new technologies, products and solutions that can benefit our customers," said Patrick Pulvermüller, managing director at Host Europe. "Comodo's long experience in provisioning core PKI infrastructures and great depth of products made them the obvious choice of partner when we decided to enhance our value proposition by offering SSL certification."
The partnership supplies Host Europe with the immediate ability to sell a wide range of SSL certificates whilst Comodo operates the entire certificate back end issuance and validation processes.
"We are delighted that Host Europe has exclusively selected Comodo to be the CA infrastructure provider for their new SSL certificate offering", said James Langman vice president of business development at Comodo. "There is a clear synergy between the core values of our companies: to provide the highest-quality services and products whilst maintaining superlative levels of customer support. This agreement reinforces Comodo's commitment to provide hosting companies with the state of the art tools, products and services that help their customers create more trusted Web sites."
