Trend Micro updates security ahead of Windows 10
FYI, this story is more than a year old
With the lead up to the Windows 10 release in full swing, Trend Micro has today announced the launch of a new fully compatible security solution, Trend Micro Security 10.
The security firm says the 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 all devices.
“It’s a fact of life that all laptops, smart phones, PCs and tablets are susceptible to data theft, and stealing information from one’s digital life is easier than most people think,” explains Tim Falinski, director, consumer, at Trend Micro ANZ.
“People are accessing the internet anytime and anywhere. It’s hard to know if your information is being shared without permission.”
Current Trend Micro customers can upgrade for free to the latest version. The previous version, Trend Micro Security 2015, is also Windows 10 compatible, if updated before the user upgrades to Windows 10.
“We want to ensure our customers are protected in this fast-changing world, providing them with advanced protection without disruption,” Falinski says.
“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,” Falinski continues. “These tools block viruses, spyware, worms and Trojans, preventing their devices from becoming infected.
“Trend Micro Security 10 has also added additional features to protect against the increasing ransomware and online banking threats consumers are facing,” he says.
“At the end of the day, we are committed to securing individuals’ ability to do things online safely,” Falinski adds.
“We know users are socialising, banking and working more online, and our solutions make it possible to do these things with the confidence that Trend Micro Security 10 is helping you stay safe.”
