DALLAS, July 27, 2015 – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704) continues to focus on making everyone’s digital lives easier and safer. To offer consumers optimal protection, the global leader in security software today announced Trend Micro Security 10 – a security and privacy solution fully compatible with Microsoft Windows 10, which will be launched later this week. The new version’s security features are simple-to-use, yet provide state-of-the-art protection for consumers’ data, delivered with optimal performance. This allows users to securely connect and engage safely online from today’s evolving threat environment.
Trend Micro Security 10 provides protection against threats and privacy concerns regardless of the device or operating system. The software will feature protection from exposing private information or becoming susceptible to data-theft and other malicious online threats on both personal and business devices.
“It’s a fact of life that all laptops, smart phones, PC’s and tablets are susceptible to data theft, and stealing information from one’s digital life is easier than most people think,” said Kevin Simzer, chief marketing officer, Trend Micro. “People are accessing the Internet anytime and anywhere and it’s hard to know if personal or business information is being shared without permission. We want to ensure our customers are protected in this fast-changing world, providing them with advanced protection without disruption.”
With the growing number of malicious threats, breaches, and hacks, Trend Micro Security 10 helps people be safe online with its superior phishing detection and industry-leading tools. These tools block viruses, spyware, worms and Trojans, preventing their devices from becoming infected. Trend Micro is adding in new features to its already award-winning protection to further protect customers from the threats of today: from additional social media protection, SSL verification, ransomware and online banking protections. With this solution, users’ personal information is far less at risk from being compromised by cybercriminals while maintaining privacy and protection of online activity.
The Microsoft Windows 10 operating system is compatible with the following Trend Micro Security 10 products: Premium Security 10, Maximum Security 10, Internet Security 10, and Antivirus+ Security 10. Current Trend Micro customers can upgrade for free to this latest version. The previous version, Trend Micro Security 2015, is also Windows 10 compatible, if updated before the user upgrades to Windows 10.
The following are a few of the new features added to the award winning solution:
- Cloud Storage Scanner protects users from malware that may have infected files stored in the cloud on Microsoft OneDrive.
- Secure Browser in Password Manager. Trend Micro Maximum and Premium Security 10 come bundled with Trend Micro Password Manager, which helps users manage all their passwords while employing a Secure Browser to protect them against code injections, keyloggers, and man-in-the- middle / browser attacks while conducting their online banking.
- Ransomware Protection provides a focused defense against the growing variations of ransomware worldwide. With Trend Micro Security 10, the solution protects documents from unauthorized encryption or modification.
- Within the “Trend Protect Toolbar,” the SSL Checker protects users visiting financial or shopping websites by verifying the certificate being used is authentic and, warning them if it’s not.
“At the end of the day, we are committed to securing individuals’ and businesses’ ability to do things online safely,” said Simzer. “We know users are socializing, banking and working more online, and our solutions make it possible to do these things with the confidence that Trend Micro Security is helping you stay safe.”
