    Wow I totally missed this news, but Comodo has rebranded itself as Sectigo now !
    Sounds like Letsencrypt's free SSL certificate model has eaten into Comodo's business so they're branching out beyond SSL ! w3tech's quarterly market share for SSL certificate authorities Market share quarterly trends for SSL certificate authorities, December 2018

    IdenTrust = Letsencrypt grew from <0.1% to 48.0% while Sectigo/Comodo declined from a peak of 44.2% in January 2017 to now 28.7% in just over 23 months!

    I am not a fan of the name.
    It fits in the list of LibreOffice where the name is awkwardly chosen (My opinion).
