WNMU picks Comodo Cybersecurity as its endpoint security provider

Clifton-based Comodo Cybersecurity, a cybersecurity solutions provider, announced that Western New Mexico University has picked Comodo to secure university information technology assets and those of its student body.

Comodo’s solution, the Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection, isolates resources and user data from harmful executables, it said.

“An endpoint security solution is the best way to go,” Jason Collet, WNMU chief unformation officer, said. “Comodo had the best footprint for their endpoint client, the best method for stopping malware and was the best value for the price.”

“We looked at the footprint usage for each of the endpoints and the method [that] the different solutions were using,” Collet said. “Comodo’s method of containing viruses in a virtual environment before they ever write to the hard drive seems to be the best method for stopping malware. Quite frankly, a default-deny approach is the only way we are going to be able to stop threats from coming in.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
