Trend Micro Announces New Apps for Windows 8
Trend Micro has announced three new apps for Windows 8 that will be available through the Window Store in November, as well as improvements to the Titanium family of products.
Trend Micro SafeGuard is a tablet-optimized web browser with built-in security technology for use with Windows 8. Users will enjoy a browsing experience that includes Safe Search Results ratings on major search engines like Bing, Google, and Yahoo, as well as social networking security on leading sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google+.
The Go Everywhere app helps protect Windows 8 tablet PCs from loss or theft, with a functionality that locates tablets with just one click. It allows users to locate their device using a worldwide Google map, or by quickly sounding a one minute alarm. The beta version of the app is available for a limited time free in the Windows Store, and is also available to Titanium Maximum Security subscribers free of charge.
Trend Micro’s DirectPass, coming soon, will feature a new free app in the Windows Store, as well as a compatible version of DirectPass for Windows 8 desktops. Perfect for synced password protection and management across both environments, DirectPass helps make saving passwords online easy by encrypting saved passwords and helping provide an extra layer of security for banking and financial transactions.
Titanium’s Privacy Scanner for Facebook is a new solution that lets users stay on top of their Facebook settings, allowing them control of who sees what on their online profiles. Also new to Titanium this year is expanded social networking protection - now users can quickly and easily identify and manage dangerous links on Facebook and Twitter but also on other social networking sites like Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, MySpace, Mixi, and Sina Weibo.
Trend Micro Titanium makes it easy for users to share their memories and files with family and friends in the cloud through Trend Micro SafeSync, which is a standard add-on to Titanium Maximum Security. With a 5GB SafeSync account at their fingertips, Titanium Maximum Security users can sync and store photos, music, videos, and other important files and easily send them to friends on any operating system.
