Titanium 2012 Internet security software adds new line of defence

Titanium 2012 adds mobile device protection to its PC range. Download the free trial here.

Internet security company Trend Micro Incorporated has released its range of products, which have been extended with a variety of new features.

Malware detection has been improved with some interesting new technologies. Perhaps the most useful of these allows Titanium 2012 products to detect applications which have been packed (encrypted), in an effort to bypass your defences; once the file has been unpacked, it’s then scanned in real time using file-based signatures, which greatly improves the chance of detection.

Elsewhere, a new Fake AV Cleaner focuses on malware which poses as legitimate security software; proactive botnet detection can uncover even previously unknown botnets and other network threats; and a new Social Network Security module visually identifies safe and malicious links in Facebook, Twitter and Myspace.

Some features previously available in the high-end Titanium Maximum Security suite are now also available in the mainstream Titanium Internet Security. Every Titanium suite now includes the System Tuner, for instance, which optimises your PC by cleaning up the Registry, hard drive and more.

Titanium Internet Security users now get 2GB of online storage space, courtesy of Trend Micro SafeSync (though Titanium Maximum Security provides a 10GB account).

And there are smaller but still welcome additions throughout the package, including the ability to preserve your privacy by cleaning up cookies, internet histories, and securely deleting confidential files.

Perhaps the most significant addition, though, is the new Mobile Protection feature which is available with Titanium Maximum Security only. This provides further security software for up to three mobile devices: Android, Symbian, iOS or Windows-based gadgets are supported.

As with previous editions, Titanium 2012 is available in three main varieties. Titanium Antivirus Plus 2012 provides the core antivirus engine, and blocks malicious links; Titanium Internet Security 2012 is the mainstream security suite, and adds a spam filter, parental controls, firewall options, identity theft protection and more; and Titanium Maximum Security 2012 adds social networking protection, wireless hotspot authentication, file encryption, mobile protection and more. And if any you’d like to explore any of this further, trial versions of each package are available now.
