Trend Micro’s Titanium Maximum Security 2012 does a lot more than just protect your system against malware.
Running an anti-malware application is vital, but it’s not your last line of defense when it comes to protecting your PC. Full-featured security suites, such as Trend Micro’s Titanium Maximum Security 2012 ($79.99; www.trendmicro.com), provides all the tools you need to secure your PC, lock down your wireless network, protect mobile devices, make your online shopping sessions safer, scour downloads, inoculate your Web browser, and more.
As a security suite, Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security includes an anti-malware component that protects your system from viruses and spyware, so there’s no need for a redundant program such as Microsoft Security Essentials.
Trend Micro’s offering also protects your system from spam, includes a fake antivirus program removal tool, provides identity theft protection, secures your social networking profiles, and lets you remotely lock sensitive files if your computer is ever stolen.
The new System Tuner automatically clears out unnecessary browser histories, cookies, temporary files, registries, and the start-up manager to make sure your system stays fast and responsive for a good long while.
