Comodo agrees to pay AV-Comparatives.org $50,000 for 3rd party auditors to validate AV-Comparatives.org tests.
None of the AV-Comparatives.org tests are validated by a credible, independent 3rd party. It is in the end user interest to have the tests validated. There are many respectable independent and qualified organisations who can audit and validate AV-Comparatives testing methodologies and financial transactions.
This offer of payment is a goodwill gesture to AV-Comparatives.org so that they can prove to end users their testing methodologies and their financial relationships with Anti virus vendors. Its a win-win for everyone!
We are hopeful that AV-Comparatives will accept this offer and allow an independent third party audit and validate their claims in the interest of end users.
