Comodo is now Sectigo!

In late 2017, Comodo's CA was acquired by Francisco Partners. They have transformed the business to improve supporting their customers, and partners. As a result of the takeover, they have decided to rebrand, and change the company name to Sectigo

This take over has also brought new innovative solutions to Sectigo, and we look forward to new products to offer our resellers in the future. 

Product name changes will begin as early as December 17th of 2018.

The issued certificates will be rebranded as early as Q1 of 2019.


Q1: What changes will be made within OpenSRS?
A1: The reference to Comodo will be removed and replaced with Sectigo. The product names for SSL certificates will be changed as well.

Q2: Will existing certificates continue to be trusted?
A2: Yes

Q3: How will this impact my existing API implementation?
A3: The legacy comodo product names will be backwards compatible so it will not impact your existing API templates.

Please feel free to contact support at for any other questions that are not covered here.
