Trend offers Windows 8 apps
The new apps from Trend are intended to give users better security online and on social networking sites.

Trend Micro has announced three new Windows 8 apps that will be available through the Windows Store.

The apps include features for safe web browsing, password management and a function to find lost mobile devices.

Trend Micro SafeGuard, which is free to download, is a tablet-optimised web browser with built-in security features, including Safe Search Results ratings for search engines and social networking sites.

The Trend Micro Go Everywhere app provides location tracking for lost mobile devices. Users can track enabled devices using Google Maps, or if the device has been misplaced in an office or home, they can activate an audio alarm to locate it by sound. A beta version of the app is available for a limited time free in the Windows Store,

The company also plans to release DirectPass, a password management and synchronisation app, that allows users to synchronise passwords in the cloud, for free on the Windows Store.

Trend has also announced a number of improvements to its Titanium series of products for consumers. Titanium now includes SafeSync cloud file sharing service, improved security for social networks, including identifying dangerous links across a range of social networking sites, and Privacy Scanner for Facebook, to control access to user's profiles. The SafeGuard and Go Everywhere apps are also included in Titanium subscriptions.
