Trend Micro protects personal data and files with enhanced security software
Posted on 15-Sep-2016 10:16 | Tags Filed under: News



Trend Micro released its updated Trend Micro Security for 2017, with expanded capabilities that safeguard users from ransomware, malicious threats, identity theft and new malware varieties.

 

Trend Micro’s comprehensive security solution defends users against well-known dangers, but it also addresses the risks of new attacks, including the extremely disruptive online threat called “ransomware,” which locks computers or mobile devices and can encrypt files, holding them for ransom unless victims pay a set fee. Attackers can then delete photos and documents, or permanently lock a computer. Industry experts recently recognised Trend Micro Security as blocking 100 percent of ransomware threats and 100 percent effective protection against web threats as well, ensuring customers can effectively protect their valuable personal data with Trend Micro. 

 

“Cybercriminals are everywhere, watching and waiting for their next victim to get too comfortable and relaxed with their digital footprint,” said Tim Falinski, consumer director, Trend Micro New Zealand. “With Internet accessibility at the push of a button, falling into a ransomware trap or finding your devices riddled with viruses is easier than ever. We think the best defence is a good offense. Our security software ensures users are fully protected and able to access the Internet without fear of losing their private information, identity or money.” 

 

With the growing presence of ransomware and other malicious threats, the latest version of Trend Micro Security provides an additional layer of protection for your most valuable files and memories. Its robust security features block ransomware threats lurking on compromised websites, hidden in spammed emails, or wrapped in other malware. Trend Micro’s new Folder Shield feature also prevents ransomware from maliciously encrypting irreplaceable PC files. 

 

It’s important to keep mobile devices protected as well. Android™ mobile ransomware threats have grown 15 times higher than they were in April 2015. Mobile ransomware masquerades as a legitimate app or can be distributed to visitors of forum sites, SMS texting spam, and third party app stores (No ransomware currently found on Google Play app store). 

 

Trend Micro Mobile Security for Android, included with select Trend Micro Security subscriptions, delivers 99.9 percent malicious app detection[iv] and keeps its users safe from ransomware attacks while online.  Mobile Security now also offers new defences, including notifying you before connecting to an unsecured wireless network and scanning apps for vulnerabilities. 

 

These vulnerabilities could be exploited by cybercriminals hijacking your phone or files. Mobile Security also blocks users of WhatsApp from dangerous links, helping keep them safe from identity theft. 

 

From safeguarding your digital photo collection to protecting sensitive financial records, Trend Micro Security protects the information and files dearest to you. 

 

“As technology and cybercrime continue to evolve, so do the security threats that come with it,” said Falinski. “It’s our goal to not only continue offering our customers the best in threat defence, but to also stay ahead of the curve and ensure our customers are able to safely enjoy all facets of an online, cloud-connected life. We believe Trend Micro Security for 2017 provides the comprehensive protection needed in today’s digital landscape.”
