Launches new Trend Micro™ Titanium™ 2013 family of products for PC and
OTTAWA, Sept. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704)
(TSE:4704), a global leader in cloud security has released Trend Micro™
Titanium™ Internet Security 2013, a new security software suite that
delivers a heightened level of data protection for desktops, notebooks,
handsets and tablets to users of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn,
MySpace and Pinterest and other social networking sites on PC, Mac and
Android operating platforms.
Trend Micro protects you and your family's devices, important files and
data, through a new state of the art family of products which includes:
Titanium™ Antivirus+, Titanium™ Internet Security, Titanium™ Maximum
Security, Titanium™ Premium Security and Titanium™ Internet Security
Social Networking Security
"Canadian consumers live a large part of their lives on line - checking
email, surfing the Web and engaging with family and friends through
social networking, " says Ian Gordon, Director of Marketing and Channel
for Trend Micro Canada. "Security companies must make it simple, and
straightforward for consumers to keep their devices, data and
information safe. Trend Micro is the first to offer powerful and easy
to use social networking security to our customers—no matter what
platform they chose to use."
In Trend Micro's annual consumer security survey, 20% of consumers
reported that while on a social networking site, they clicked a link
that posted things to their wall that they didn't want shared, and 18%
reported clicking on a link that resulted in computer problems.
Titanium Internet Security not only identifies potentially malicious links, the product also lets
the consumer share this information with others, so users can help keep
family and friends safe online too.
The security survey also found that while 65% of respondents were
concerned about someone accessing their personal information on social
networking sites without their knowledge, 35% infrequently or never
check their privacy setting, and nearly half don't change their privacy
settings more frequently than every six months. It was also found
that most respondents (more than 60%) share information on social
networking sites that could lead to security breaches, like their birth
date, hometown, pet names and more.
Titanium's new Facebook Privacy Scanner for Windows provides an extra layer of protection for personal
information that is the only one of its kind in the industry. With a
single click, users can easily monitor their Facebook page settings and
control access to personal and private information. Titanium Internet
Security products identify which settings may lead to privacy concerns,
making it easy for consumers to stay on top of settings as they change.
Trend Micro Redefines Entry-level Security
With this new suite of products, Trend Micro offers more than just the
standard antivirus and spyware protection. Trend Micro's new
entry-level solution, Titanium Antivirus + goes further to protect consumers where they really need to be
protected. With Titanium Antivirus + consumers will enjoy protection
on WiFi hotspots, antispam blocking, and search engine result ratings
that will help them to decide if a website is safe to visit.
Beyond Entry-level - Titanium Internet Security, Maximum and Premium
Trend Micro has also created Titanium Internet Security to help make smart choices for their children, balancing the freedom to
explore the Internet, while providing the ability to control and
monitor kids' online access and content.
For those consumers on multiple devices that want to not only protect
their important data, but want to strengthen their passwords, secure
their photos and memories, and stay safe while on social networking
sites - Titanium Maximum Security is a perfect all-in-one security solution. Titanium Maximum Security
customers receive three licenses that can be used on multiple devices
including Macs, PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Titanium
Maximum Security users will also enjoy 5GB of SafeSync secure online
storage with mobile access. For those with more devices and data, Trend
Micro offers Titanium Premium Security that allows for two additional
licenses for a total of five devices protected, and 25 GB of SafeSync
secure online storage.
Windows 8 Optimization
In preparation for the Microsoft® Windows® 8 launch, Trend Micro
Titanium will ship Windows 8 Compatible. Whether or not they are using
the new Windows 8 operating system, or an older version of Windows,
users will enjoy the same vigilant protection and easy-to-use Trend
Micro Titanium solutions.
