Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2011
3 February 2014
Excerpt: Although, some free antivirus programs are good at detecting and cleaning viruses and Trojans, you need a good internet security suite that has additional features. Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2011 is a comprehensive suite that features parental controls, system tuning utility, data theft prevention, spam blocker, and protection against suspicious links in IM and email, in addition to an antivirus program.
Conclusion: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2013 takes the already feature-filled Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2013 and adds Trend Micro's password management, backup/sync, and social networking tracking tools. It's got just about everything.
Pros: Good malware cleanup, very good malware blocking. Accurate spam and phishing filters. Tests Facebook privacy. Protects user-defined confidential data. Secure file deletion. Parental control. System tuneup. Password management. Online backup. Online Guardian for tracking of social networking.
Cons: Tough to install on infested test systems. Some false positives. Very slow spam filtering. Some effect on system performance. Password manager can be awkward. Online Guardian features other than social tracking are weak.
Conclusion: Trend Micro's 2011 suite does its protective work without hassling or slowing down the user, and its online backup system is stupendous. Weak malware removal abilities bring down its score, however.
Pros: Flexible backup and synchronization system with 10 GB of online storage. Blocks dangerous websites. Rates links in search results. Firewall blocked and identified many exploits in testing. Simple parental control. Accurate spam filter. Low impact on performance. Many security-related bonus tools.
Cons: Antivirus focuses on current threats, misses even slightly older threats. Poor phishing protection. Parental control easily hacked. Antispam works only with specific e-mail clients.
Excerpt: In today’s digital age, security and privacy are aspects one cannot compromise on, owing to the increasing number of inexhaustible threats in the form of viruses, malware, trojans, worms, etc.
Conclusion: This suite's backup and file sync feature is both powerful and flexible, vastly better than the average suite. Antispam is also great, and it offers a number of useful extras. However, its core antivirus protection rates poorly in my test and independent tests.
Pros: Simple, lightweight, easy to use. Toolbar marks dangerous links in search results and social network sites. Simple, accurate spam filter. Top-notch online backup and file sync. System tuner. File vault, secure eraser.
Cons: Antivirus scored poorly in my tests and some independent lab tests. Removal of one threat required lengthy remote-control repair session. Weak phishing protection.
Conclusion: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2013 is a good, all-round Internet Security suite with many useful extra trimmings. As well as having an above-average detection engine and a low resource hit (though with a comparatively low remediation score), it’s well organised and includes worthwhile Facebook and general social media security checks.
Pros: Lots of extras, Social media checks, Well organised, low system impact, Mobile device license
Excerpt: As anti-virus brands go, Trend Micro has been around for a while- meaning it’s a company with a fair bit of pedigree behind it when it comes to fighting the good online fight. And with this latest release, the 2012 version of Titanium Maximum Security, Trend Micro has once again delivered a product that is both easy to understand (i.e. use) and easy to install.
Pros: : Easy to use, solid protection, Mac version available
Trend Micro's Titanium Maximum Security 2012 suite has a clean, easy to use interface, and it's not overly intrusive

Excerpt: Installing and using a security suite on a desktop PC or laptop (in fact, especially a laptop) can be a frustrating experience. Pop-ups, incessant messages to update and upgrade, not to mention performance hits, are often traits of these programs. Trend Micro's Titanium Maximum Security 2012 aims to be more user-friendly on all those fronts and it's mostly successful.
Pros: Simple interface, Easy to use, Not intrusive
Cons: Could use more in-depth data logging and reporting features, Small interface window
Summary: Following on last year's big overhaul, Trend Micro makes a series of smaller changes to this year's Titanium security suites. While we loved the baked-in mobile support, free storage and file encryption, inconsistent benchmarks hold the suites back.
Pros: Lots of tools to protect privacy, Fast installation
Cons: Slow boot time, Virus and malware removal is done by Trend Micro's Housecall, an online system, rather than locally
Excerpt: If you're looking for bang for your buck, Trend Micro throws in its reworked, cloud-based solution to the typical antivirus software from last year (which runs more efficiently) alongside simple and mostly comprehensive controls that sit neatly in one of the easiest user interfaces you'll come across.
Pros: Quick cloud scanning without the upgrading hassle; simple, attractive user interface with a handful of value-adding features; bundled with SafeSync cloud storage; runs without sapping CPU power
Cons: Lacks in some in-depth controls and customisable settings
