Comodo innovates new automated provisioning tools

In addition it explained that it developed specific tools to meet the server specifications of Apache and IIS 6.0 servers. Further the automation process to support Apache servers include auto generation of the private key, creation of the CSR automatically and the ability to automatically collect the certificate.

The company described that this auto process is delivered to customers in one file for simpler and faster deployment.
