Easy setup, enhanced anti-threat protection and new TrendSecure services and customer care programmes, are the main highlights of Trend Micro’s PC-cillin Internet Security 2007.
The suite includes a host of new features addressing rootkits, spyware, phishing, spam, hackers, viruses, wi-fi attacks, smartphone threats and the growing number of identity-theft threats.
The software is packaged with Trend Micro’s new set of online security services, TrendSecure, which cater to increasingly mobile users by extending digital security beyond home-connected computers.
PC-cillin Internet Security 2007 features an entirely new integrated anti-spyware and antivirus engine, which includes technology Trend Micro acquired from anti-spyware provider, InterMute, last year. This includes tools such as Venus Spy Trap behavioural monitoring and a Rootkit Common Module that specifically blocks rootkits.
TrendSecure offers services such as Remote File Lock, allowing users to lock down sensitive files through the internet if their laptop is lost or stolen and Transaction Guard that uses a secret keyboard to protect online transactions conducted though public internet connections.
Available for download, Trend Micro Mobile Security meanwhile protects devices from viruses and spam directed at smartphones.
