Trend Micro Titanium Max Security strengthens the cloud Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Seth Rosenblatt for CNET, and this first league video, I'll be showing you Trend Micro's Titanium Maximum Security 2012, which you can get from download.com. Trend Micro kept the new name and new interface and instead focused on expanding security features for 2012. Two new engines have joined the fold. One is designed to detect and remove the fake antivirus malware that plagues many people while the other actively stops botnets that might have been infected your computer. Value-added enhancements covered both useful like bundling 1 free license for Trend Micro's Smart Surfing for Mac and the gimmicky like a selection of new interface skins for the Windows version. There is safe sink for storing files online and sinking them amongst new various devices and Trend Micro considerately gives you a decent 10 gigs to play with Krates. You also get a local encrypted vault for file protection. There is PC optimizer that cleans your registry and temp files and deletes browsing history and cookies. Of course, your browser kind of does that too. One excellent extra is mobile security. Titanium comes with free licenses for IOS and Android security apps, which offer lost phone tracking, antivirus, and SMS blockers. The Trend Micro Toolbar for FireFox and Internet Explorer warns you about malicious links posted to Facebook and Twitter as well as in your search. When it comes to benchmarks, Trend Micro was strong, but could be better. It's got a quick scan that finishes in about a minute and third party efficacy tests say it does very well at avoiding false positives and blocking threats, but it's not so good at according to those tests is removing Malware. Basically, Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security is a good solid security option. You've got a nice, new shiny computer and you don't want anything to happen to it. For CNET, I'm Seth Rosenblatt.
A new name heralds some big changes for Trend Micro's Titanium suites. The overhaul to Maximum Security 2011 brings users a faster suite with a smaller system impact. There's a lot of top-shelf extras to like here, too, but that's not enough to sell security on.
