Sectigo Delivers Record Quarter of Growth Underpinned by More Than 35% YoY Enterprise Sales Increase in Q1 2019

Addition of Top Brands, Along with New Email Encryption and Digital
Signing Product, Drive Sales for World’s Largest Commercial SSL Provider

ROSELAND, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sectigo
(formerly Comodo CA), the world’s largest commercial Certificate
Authority and a leader in web security solutions, today announced a
larger than 35% year-over-year (YoY) increase in enterprise sales during
the first quarter of 2019, fueled by the adoption of the company’s Certificate
Manager
, Private CA, S/MIME, and IoT Manager enterprise solutions.
Sectigo also kicked off 2019 with an expanded partner program, the
release of its Zero-Touch
Deployment S/MIME
product, a new strategic IoT alliance, and receipt
of numerous awards.

Sectigo’s record quarter follows a breakthrough year and a complete corporate
rebrand
in November of 2018. The company has experienced rapid
growth since expanding beyond TLS/SSL
certificates
to offer solutions that protect enterprises of all
sizes from increasingly sophisticated web-based threats across websites,
IoT devices, internal infrastructure, and cloud services.

“After delivering a strong 2018 where Sectigo’s growth was more than
twice as fast as the overall market, we have accelerated our efforts by
doubling down on addressing the enterprise’s most pressing needs through
product innovation,” said Bill Holtz, CEO, Sectigo.

“Enterprises are embracing automated certificate management to
facilitate discovery, installation, and renewal for their vast
inventories of private and public certificates across diverse use cases
and operating systems. These capabilities are essential to securing our
complex enterprise environments and their increasing use of
virtualization, containerization, mobile devices, IoT, and DevOps.
Certificate automation enables strong identity in these complex
environments and protects against costly outages caused by unexpected
certificate expirations,” Holtz added.

Sectigo highlights in Q1 2019 include:

  • Enterprise growth – Dozens of marquee brands, spanning retail
    to technology sectors, enlisted Sectigo as their trusted partner for
    certificate management. Sectigo Certificate Manager provides
    enterprises with complete visibility and lifecycle control over any

    portal.
  • Product innovation – In February, Sectigo introduced the
    industry’s first Zero-Touch
    S/MIME solution

    The innovation modernizes email security and encryption by using
    automation to deploy digital certificates across every desktop,
    tablet, and mobile device in an enterprise.
  • Expanded IoT ecosystem – Sectigo and Kyrio, a subsidiary of
    CableLabs, formed a
    strategic alliance
    to provide the expertise needed for IoT
    projects to be designed, architected, built, and deployed with
    security in mind from day one. Multi-vendor ecosystems, including the
    Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), CBRS WInnForum, and SunSpec
    Alliance, have already chosen Kyrio and Sectigo to manage their global
    PKI deployments.
