Trend Micro has announced its new range of internet security solutions aimed at protecting different aspects of technological life, right from the computer to the smartphone.
V5 is designed to empower consumers against malicious threats in a variety of devices, including smartphones, notebooks, tablets and gaming PCs.
The software builds on the company’s award winning protection introduced last year, safeguarding finances, online shopping, social networking, mobile computing, game playing and even digital photographs.
“Trend Micro is committed to empowering online users and their families to live their digital lives to the fullest, without fear or hesitation” said David Peterson, its Consumer Sales Director ANZ.
The new series is powered by Trend’s Smart Protection Network infrastructure, which has been ranked first in protection by three independent labs across ten separate tests. The secret to its success is its proactive identification of threats, stopping them before they reach users through up to the minute protection.
“As consumers continue to take advantage of all the Internet has to offer, we continue our commitment to enhancing the protection our products provide. Now we are adding up-to-the-minute features such as web threat protection, signature-based and behaviour scanning, which will ensure multiple ways of identifying a threat as it tries to attack.”
V5 features some new security enhancements including a tool that recognises viral threats that masquerade as antivirus agents (Fake AV), proactive botnet, PE virus protection, protection against malware packer technology and a tool that identifies malicious links on social networking sites.
The new software also gives users greater control, with enhanced behavioural monitoring, parental controls, rootkit detection and removal.
Available in three packages, the Titanium V5 packages include Smart Surfing for PC ($59.95), Internet Security ($99.95) and Maximum Security ($129.95). For Android users, a Mobile Security Personal Edition is also available, with a two year subscription costing $49.95.
