From HEXONET Wiki
Comodo's CA was acquired by Francisco Partners in late 2017. With this new partnership, Comodo is expanding beyond SSL and has demonstrate a renewed commitment to innovation, digital transformation and service. As a result of this, they have rebranded Comodo to Sectigo!
Following the rebranding, product name changes will be effective starting January 2019. You'll soon start seeing certificates issued by Sectigo instead of Comodo over time. However, this change will happen gradually and seamlessly. It will not affect existing products and Comodo Authority roots will remain trusted.
You can see a list of product name changes in the following section below.
