Trend Micro releases netbook security software
Trend Micro Titanium Security for Netbooks designed to be easy to use, low footprint
Trend Micro has launched a new dedicated security solution for netbooks. Trend Micro Titanium Security for Netbooks has been designed to provide protection from malware without taking up too much hard drive space or processing power.
The new software includes anti-virus, anti-spyware and web threat protection, with automatic removal of harmful files and an easy to use security widget to control the software.
In order to minimize the footprint of the software on the client device, and to provide real time protection, Titanium Security for Netbooks uses Trend's Smart Protection Network, a cloud-based security service that uses reputation technology, feedback loops, and TrendLabsSM researchers to provide a constant watch for emerging threats.
Anthony O'Mara, VP of EMEA at Trend Micro said: "Trend Micro identified that for everyday tasks such as email and surfing the web, netbook users need easy-to-install, easy-to-use powerful protection that automatically detects and removes the latest viruses and spyware. Trend has responded to that need with Titanium."
The software has already been endorsed by Asus, which has announced that it will ship Titanium as standard on all of its eeePC netbook range.
"Netbooks are often used to surf the internet and many people may not be aware of precautions they need to take to protect themselves against online threats", said John Swatton, marketing specialist at Asus. "Low computing power also means savvy netbook users may shut down critical security programs to boost speed. Titanium runs in the background providing comprehensive, up-to-date protection against online threats without slowing down the system."
