Comodo Partnership
Multiple surveys have shown an increasing level of consumer concern related to online data protection and security. SSL Certificates are used by online businesses to protect customer transactions and allow for secure connections from a web server to a browser. They are most commonly used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer, and logins. Recently, Google announced that it will be incorporating the presence of an SSL certificate in its search algorithm, elevating the importance of website security in search engine results. Endurance's partnership with Comodo will allow its customers to easily obtain an SSL certificate and tailor a package of security technology through the Endurance platform.

Comodo's SSL certificates are currently available on Endurance brands Bluehost and HostGator, and are currently being implemented on iPage, IPOWER, FatCow, BigRock and ResellerClub.
