Brings its Cloud-based Security to Netbooks.
Trend Micro™ Titanium Security for Netbooks debuts today, bringing the power of the cloud to protect netbooks, and further strengthening Trend’s position as the leader in advance netbook security solutions. With many netbook users new to the personal computing experience, Trend Micro Titanium brings robust security features that are easy to use, easy to install and packed with power. Expected to be available from April 15, Trend Micro Titanium Security for Netbooks is priced from £39.99.
Trend Micro Titanium Security provides powerful protection against viruses and spyware. Using the latest scanning technology, it automatically finds and removes malware, including viruses, spyware, phishing and pharming attempts. It also blocks untrustworthy links from activating in emails or IMs. Trend Micro Titanium Security automatically finds and uninstalls existing security software, while its installation is smooth and glitch free.
Despite its sophisticated security, Titanium remains light on the device’s memory, and does not frustrate users by slowing down their netbooks when browsing the Internet, or sending or receiving email. To further enhance the user experience, Trend Micro Titanium boasts a sleek and intuitive widget like interface, which is a perfect fit for netbook machines. Always on, it operates discreetly in the background, so there’s no need for users to worry about whether they are protected or not.
Validating its position as the best security solution for netbook applications, ASUS has endorsed Titanium by partnering with Trend Micro to ship all its eeepc netbooks with Titanium as standard.
“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”, says 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.”
Netbooks offer an affordable entry into portable computing especially for buyers with tight budgets. “Netbooks have enjoyed an ever increasing popularity over the past 18 months”, said Marie-Christine Pygott, senior analyst at market research specialists Context. “As expected, Netbook sales in the UK reached a peak pre-Christmas last year, and momentum continued into this year. In February, for example, Netbook sales across Context’s UK Distributor panel grew by more than 90% compared to the same period last year.”
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, while ASUS’ decision to protect its netbooks with the solution, is an industry endorsement that validates Trend’s position as the provider of the best threat protection for portable netbook devices.”
