Comodo Acquires Assets of Privacy Software Corporation

Comodo announces the acquisition of the assets of Privacy Software Corporation (PSC), a privately-owned company that develops security technology for the detection of malware, trojans, spyware and rootkits. Acquired solutions include NSClean, IEClean, BOClean and FileVac.

The acquisition extends Comodo's leadership in threat management, which began with firewall technology and has continued with recent moves into anti-spyware, anti-virus and anti-spam technology. Comodo will continue to market the former PSC solutions as standalone offerings as well as incorporate these products into Comodo's desktop security solution suite.

This acquisition reinforces Comodo's commitment to provide a tightly integrated approach to desktop security through technologies that develop extensive white lists in combination with superior approaches for malware detection. Helping customers protect their computers with the highest quality desktop solutions is an important objective for Comodo so that consumers can interact online with trusted access while also dynamically responding to threats.

Sold via the Web, PSC will continue to support current customers without any disruption to services or scheduled updates. The company intends to release BOClean 4.23 in April. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
