Trend Micro Releases Titanium Security 2014

Password management feature includes a secure browser to conduct safe online commerce

CUPERTINO, Calif., Sept. 5, 2013 - The social media privacy management tool is featured in today's release of Trend Micro's Titanium&trade 2014 family of consumer security products. Titanium Security 2014 is a customizable security solution built on Trend Micro's 25 years of leadership in Internet security.

Titanium Security 2014 solutions provide industry-leading, anti-virus and Web-threat protection that identifies and blocks dangerous links in websites, social networks, emails and instant messaging. It also detects spam emails containing phishing scams that can trick users into revealing private personal information. According to the August 2013 AV Comparatives report, Trend Micro Titanium offers the broadest combination of privacy and Web threat protections for Facebook, Google+, and Twitter across PCs and Macs among 31 security products reviewed (Social Network Protection Review, August 2013, AV Comparatives).

Trend Micro has expanded its unique social network privacy technology, which identifies privacy settings that may leave personal or inappropriate information publicly available or vulnerable to identity theft. Trend Micro also gives users control over which apps can access biographical data, and who can tag and see photos. These features are critical today, considering only 24% of Facebook users change their privacy settings each month or more often, according to the same survey of social media users. The same poll showed that 27% of Twitter users and 30% of Google+ users have never checked their privacy settings and 34% of Twitter users and 39% of Google + users have never updated their privacy settings. Trend Micro's robust personal privacy management tool now dramatically simplifies privacy settings on Twitter and Google+, and Facebook – for both Mac and PC. Facebook settings can also now be managed on-the-go via an Android app.

To help fight identity theft, Trend Micro's password management feature in Titanium Security 2014 includes a secure browser to conduct safe online commerce that is specifically designed to support secure online banking. Based on users from the same poll, respondents have an average of 12 accounts requiring passwords, but are using only eight passwords among those dozen accounts. An identify thief can do more damage to a victim that uses the same password in multiple accounts.

Additionally included in Trend Micro's customized solutions are robust parental controls to help families protect children from the dangers inherent to Internet use. Titanium Security 2014 empowers parents to restrict and filter their children's online access, protecting them from inappropriate or harmful websites. In addition, the security solution includes a way to monitor kids' behavior online – to help parents protect their kids from cyber bullying and encounters with online predators.

For Android smartphone and tablet users, Titanium Security 2014 includes the Facebook privacy management app within the Trend Micro&trade Mobile Security. Mobile Security is designed to find a lost or stolen device, identify data-stealing mobile apps, back-up and restore data stored on a device, and remotely lock and wipe out data.

"Life is difficult enough without having to worry whether or not your reputation, your data or your identity is protected," says Omikawa. "Trend Micro tackles this enormous challenge with Titanium Security 2014. This comprehensive solution provides users with all-in-one protection on PCs, Macs and mobiles devices for practically everything you do online, so you can enjoy your digital life safely."
