Ok, we all love FREE, if you are reading my blog, you know how often I like to put FREE in my blogs, ‘cause WE ALL LOVE FREE.
Well, this time it is the jackpot, FREE & USEFUL!
Comodo may be one of those companies you have never heard of and now you will wish you had. They offer a wealth of free software that focuses on security. Their catch phrase is the Trusted Internet. Basically what they want is to increase trust in use of the Internet and the businesses that operate on the Internet. They do have products they sell (hey they are a business) but they want to facilitate the Trusted Internet concept by providing software tools to protect computers. If people feel their computers are protected they are more likely to use the Internet and Internet businesses, thusly the Trusted Internet. If more people trust the Internet and use Internet businesses, Comodo will sell more of their products and make more money and therefore will be able to support all of their FREE software.
Get this they have ten (10!) FREE applications you can download. Perhaps more importantly they have very good overviews of what you are getting and a wealth of FAQ to support each product.
The ten applications are:
Comodo Firewall Pro
Comodo Memory Firewall
Comodo Verification Engine
Comodo Registry Cleaner
And as an added bonus Comodo AV Scanner which is not a download, it scans your computer from the Internet.
I did some research on Comodo and found they are a big wheel in the Certificate business. I read some reviews of the products and found some big time positive reviews. I also read that some of the software, in some cases, is perceived as too good. The Firewall got some criticism for intrusiveness. I guess there may be some folks who don’t understand that firewalls are designed to protect and may be intrusive. Overall, I suggest you go to their site Comodo, check out the software, see what you can use and try it for FREE!
Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!
