"Consumers are spending most of their time checking email, surfing the web and using social networks to stay connected with family and friends. Privacy is also a major concern as cybercriminals are scoping out the privacy of our online identities in new and more interesting ways. It is imperative for consumers in Malaysia to stay vigilant and protected with the right tools that can work easily and seamlessly across devices and platforms for complete protection,” said Terrence Tang, Regional Director & Consumer Business, Trend Micro.

Here are some of the new highlights and main features of the Trend Micro Titanium 2013 Cloud Edition:

  • Social Networking Security – Titanium's new Facebook Privacy Scanner for Windows provides an extra layer of protection for personal information that is the only of its kind in the industry. With just a single click, users can easily monitor their Facebook page settings, identify which settings may lead to privacy concerns and control access to personal and private information. This new feature doesn't just work with Facebook only as it also identifies potentially malicious links on Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest. Users can also help their friends by sharing this information.
  • Enhanced Parental Control – Designed for parents who want a peace of mind when their children are using the computer. This set of enhanced Parental Control gives parents the ability to manage specific programs that their children can access at certain times.

  • Trend Micro Mobile Security Personal Edition – Trend Micro's flagship mobile product comes with a new Privacy and Threat Scanner which warns users of apps that access and upload private data.

It also includes Lost-Device Protection that allow users to find, lock and erase data on a missing device.

So to keep Mac users safe, the new Titanium 2013 provides them with comprehensive security including protection against spam, viruses, malware, parental controls and protection on social networking sites.
