Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, announced the launch of Trend Micro Security Suite, its most comprehensive protection for home users. In addition to a wide range of Trend Micro's leading existing consumer security products, the new suite's key added feature helps combat identity theft.
According to a recent survey done by Trend Micro, 85 per cent of Singaporeans are very worried about identity theft, and 88 per cent of home users are concerned about the risk of cyberthreats on their home computers (PC and Mac). They are equally concerned (87 per cent) about cyberthreats on mobile phones and tablets.
Trend Micro Security Suite includes the following products to provide complete identity and device protection:
Maximum Security provides protection for PC and Mac®
Mobile Security protects Android™ and iOS devices
ID Security provides dark web monitoring to protect users against identity theft
WiFi Protection helps secure personal information via VPN on public WiFi
Password Manager helps keep passwords safe and secure
"As our lives and activities have moved increasingly online, so too has the risk and rise of identity theft. The consequences of this malicious activity can have a significant impact on the lives of the victims for years to come," said Tim Falinski, managing director, consumer business APAC for Trend Micro. "The vast amounts of personal data available online is not protected at a level that matches that same volume. With our new Trend Micro Security Suite, we are offering our customers the ability to protect their personal information online – in an easy way that does not require an advanced IT degree."
Although concern for cyber threats remains high, recent Trend Micro research also found that, it is the user's behaviour that puts them at risk. Nearly half of the respondents confirmed they don't use a password manager, which puts them at risk of weak or reused passwords. Nearly two thirds of the respondents said they use public WiFi, which potentially also puts their personal information at risk.
"In the first half of this year alone, Trend Micro blocked over 27 billion threats, confirming that threats such as viruses, malware, and ransomware continue to be a major concern for consumers. Including our award-winning consumer product Maximum Security into our new Security Suite ensures that our users continue to receive the strongest protection against all threats," Falinski added.
