Trend Micro Incorporated has reaffirmed its commitment to providing security and peace-of-mind to its customers with the release of Trend Micro Security for 2017.
The new range of software has expanded capabilities that safeguard users from ransomware, malicious threats, identity theft and new malware varieties by providing reliable protection against 250 million threats a day.
Trend Micro’s comprehensive security solution defends users against well-known dangers, but it also addresses the risks of new attacks, including the extremely disruptive online threat called “ransomware,” which locks computers or mobile devices and can encrypt files, holding them for ransom unless victims pay a set fee. Attackers can then delete photos and documents, or permanently lock a computer. Industry experts recently recognised Trend Micro Security as blocking 100 percent of ransomware threats and 100 percent effective protection against web threats as well, ensuring customers can effectively protect their valuable personal data with Trend Micro.
“Cybercriminals are everywhere, watching and waiting for their next victim to get too comfortable and relaxed with their digital footprint,” said Eva Chen, CEO, Trend Micro. “With Internet accessibility at the push of a button, falling into a ransomware trap or finding your devices riddled with viruses is easier than ever. We think the best defense is a good offense. Our security software ensures users are fully protected and able to access the Internet without fear of losing their private information, identity or money.”
With the growing presence of ransomware and other malicious threats, the latest version of Trend Micro Security provides an additional layer of protection for your most valuable files and memories. Its robust security features block ransomware threats lurking on compromised websites, hidden in spammed emails, or wrapped in other malware. Trend Micro’s new Folder Shield feature also prevents ransomware from maliciously encrypting irreplaceable PC files.
Trend Micro Mobile Security for Android, included with select Trend Micro Security subscriptions, delivers 99.9 percent malicious app detection and keeps its users safe from ransomware attacks while online. In addition to tailoring new and updated mobile security features to protect specifically against ransomware, Mobile Security now offers new defenses, including notifying you before connecting to an unsecured wireless network and scanning apps for vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities could be exploited by cybercriminals hijacking your phone or files. Mobile Security also blocks users of WhatsApp from dangerous links, helping keep them safe from identity theft.
