Trend Micro Announces New Mobile Security for Consumers with Privacy Protection for Facebook
Trend Micro is taking a fresh approach to protecting Android smartphones and tablet (running Android 2.2 Froyo and above)users with the release of the Trend Micro Security 3.0. The 3rd gen personal edition of Trend Micro Mobile Security advances security to a new level by extending protection to Facebook information. This new version also includes faster malware scanning and the ability to backup all of the user's data in Trend Micro's secure cloud.
According to Facebook, 680 million of the 1.06 billion monthly active Facebook users access the social networking site via their mobile devices. Although Facebook has recently updated its security settings, quite a number of Facebook users aren't aware about the privacy settings, which puts them at a much higher risk of privacy violations.
To counter this, Trend Micro Mobile Security incorporates the recently released Trend Micro Privacy Scanner. Also available as a free app, the Trend Micro Privacy Scanner that's designed for use with Facebook provides an additional layer of protection for personal information on the social networking site. With a single click, users can easily monitor their Facebook page settings and control access to personal and private information, improving both customers’ digital and personal safety.
Also included is the Trend Micro Mobile Backup and Restore, which is also available as a standalone app. It provides integrated data backup into Trend Micro’s secure cloud system. Contacts, pictures, videos, music, text messages, call history and calendar entries can all be automatically backed up via Mobile Backup and Restore. On top of this, a new enhanced scanning engine also provides faster and more effective protection, developed to help mitigate any impact on the device.
Trend Micro Mobile Security v3.0 is available at major retail stores at S$29.90.
A trial download, as well as the Trend Micro Privacy Scanner, are also available on Google Play.
Trend Micro Mobile Security v3.0 is available at the IT Show happening from 7-10 March 2013, at a special 50%-off introductory price of S$14.95. Trend Micro is located at Booth #B2-40, Marina Bay Sands, Basement 2.
