- To help fight password and ID theft, encrypts all online passwords
TREND Micro Inc has launched a security solution available that offers protection from cyber-threats for PC, Macintosh, Android and iOS platforms to protect consumers from the perils of Internet across multiple devices anytime, anywhere.
Trend Micro Maximum Security 2015 Cloud Edition is an all-in-one consumer solution that helps resolve both security and privacy issues that continue to plague Internet users, the company said in a statement.
“Consumers today are very reliant on their devices, with an average Malaysian owning four digital devices each,” said Terrence Tang, senior director of the Asia Pacific Consumer Business at Trend Micro.
“Yet, they often forget that having more devices also increases their exposure to cyber-attacks,’ he said, adding that an online poll conducted by the company showed that only half of the respondents have installed security or antivirus apps or software on both their mobile devices and personal computers.
The poll, which surveyed close to 600 respondents in Malaysia, also indicated that 73% Internet users are concerned about sharing private information on social networking sites, and as many as 69% of respondents deleted or hid timeline posts they had shared previously.
“To users, securing all of their personal devices can be a huge challenge especially when devices today usually run on various operating systems,” said Andrew Tan, product marketing manager for the South-East Asia Consumer Business at Trend Micro.
“With this in mind, Trend Micro has expanded the Maximum Security 2015 Cloud Edition to offer a complete set of features to protect users from privacy and security breaches across multiple devices and on different platforms including PC, Mac, Android and iOS.
Trend Micro said its Maximum Security 2015 Cloud Edition helps protect Internet users from potentially harmful activities online. It provides industry-leading antivirus and Web-threat protection that identifies and blocks dangerous links in websites, social networks, emails and instant messaging.
It also detects spam emails containing phishing scams that can trick users into revealing private personal information.
Trend Micro also found that 46% of surveyed respondents let their browser save their passwords online, a dangerous practice susceptible to being hacked, especially in the wake of online data breaches.
To help fight password and identity theft, Trend Micro Maximum Security 2015 Cloud Edition includes a password manager which encrypts all online passwords, enabling customers to easily log into websites without the fear of password theft.
The password manager also works across multiple devices and provides a password generator to stop the common, but unsafe practice of using the same password for multiple accounts.
The new solution has also expanded its social network Privacy Scanner to scan LinkedIn, in addition to Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Users can now rely on Trend Micro’s technology to help maintain privacy, security and positive online reputations.
Trend Micro’s Maximum Security 2015 along with the Trend Micro Internet Security 2015 are available now at all leading IT retailers and the Trend Micro website.
