Comodo the leaders behind the Comodo Antivirus, and Firewall suite is the first company to pass over 50% market share in the SSL market for the first time ever. Through the integration withe CPanel and CloudFlare, the market share for Comodo has ballooned to over 53%.
These largest gains were for domain validated certificates and not for EV SSL’s. This partially due to pressure from Google for every website to encrypt their traffic in order to improve user’s security and privacy. While this is becoming easier and the number of encrypted traffic is becoming larger with each passing day. Two certificate holders are responsible for this Comodo, and Let’s Encrypt both who are offering free SSL certificates in one way or another to every website on the internet and they are making it incredibly easy to integrate with your website.
