Comodo CA has rebranded as Sectigo

For the past two decades, Comodo CA has provided digital identity solutions to both enterprises and small businesses, issuing more than 100 million SSL certificates across 200 countries. Now, Comodo CA has rebranded as Sectigo.

By rebranding, Sectigo is establishing itself as a separate entity from its predecessor, the Comodo Group, and emphasizing its expansion beyond SSL. The change marks a renewed commitment to innovation, digital transformation, and service.

Sectigo’s mission is “to be the world’s most trusted, innovative, and customer-centric partner for protecting organizations’ identities, web presence and connected devices – from the biggest brands to the smallest websites – so they can secure today and seize their tomorrow.”

Here’s what you need to know

This rebrand will not affect existing products and Comodo Authority roots will remain trusted. You’ll soon start seeing certificates issued by Sectigo instead of Comodo CA, however, the rebrand is happening gradually—you might still see specific certificates issued by Comodo CA during the transition.

The specs for all certificates will remain the same, however the certificate names will change to reflect the new Sectigo brand instead of Comodo. We’ve created a Product Name Changes Chart to clarify the old and new product names.

You might also find Sectigo’s FAQ to provide a helpful overview.

What’s changing at OpenSRS?

1. We are updating opensrs.com to display the new Sectigo brand and product names, removing mention of Comodo.

We will be making a few minor changes as a result of this rebrand:

2. In early 2019, we will update the Reseller Control Panel, the API, and other integration platforms and tools to reflect the new certificate names.

For Control Panel users – you will continue to still see the old Comodo certificate names until they’re updated in early 2019. Rest assured, any orders placed for Comodo certificates will provision the Setigo equivalent.

For API users – any future API changes will be backwards compatible. You can continue to use the same “comodo” product_type parameter values you do today—the Sectigo equivalent will be provisioned.

What changes do you need to make?

As mentioned, this rebrand will not impact how you register and manage Comodo/Sectigo SSL certificates through OpenSRS. However, we recommend making a few front-end  adjustments as you see fit:

1. Update any references to the Comodo brand on your website to Sectigo.

2. If you market specific Comodo certificates to your customers, please ensure you update the product names.

To help you with this, Sectigo has put together a partner resource page with their new logo, brand guidelines, and other marketing assets.
