Trend Micro’s Titanium Internet Security 2013 is said to be the answer to social networking safety. It identifies potentially malicious links on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, MySpace and Pinterest. How does Titanium do this?  When Titanium identifies a bad link, it will let the consumer share this information with friends, so users can help keep friends safe online too.

Technology enables people to keep up with friends, family and colleagues around the world via social networks. Unfortunately, there is a dark side to social networking. Billions of people are socialising on websites, creating a large pool of potential victims that attract cybercriminals. Click-jacking, fake applications and social engineering are just some of the tactics used in order to deliver malware. In Trend Micro’s annual consumer security survey, 20 percent of consumers reported that while on a social networking site, they clicked a link that posted things to their wall that they didn’t want shared, and 18 percent reported clicking on a link that resulted in computer problems.

The security survey also found that while 65 percent of respondents were concerned about someone accessing their personal information on social networking sites without their knowledge, 35 percent infrequently or never check their privacy setting, and nearly half don’t change their privacy settings more frequently than every six months.  It was also found that most respondents (more than 60 percent) share information on social networking sites that could lead to security breaches, like their birth date, hometown, pet names and more.

Titanium’s new Facebook Privacy Scanner for Windows provides an extra layer of protection for personal information.  Users can monitor their Facebook page settings and control access to personal and private information. 

In preparation for the Microsoft Windows 8 launch, Trend Micro Titanium will ship Windows 8 compatible.

Titanium Antivirus + offers protection on wifi hotspots, antispam blocking, and search engine result ratings that will help them to decide if a website is safe to visit. It offers protection to all users using social networks with its Facebook Privacy Scanner and Social Networking Security that identify settings that may leave personal information vulnerable, allowing users to make changes to keep private information private. 

In a recent survey conducted by Trend Micro, 71 percent of respondents were concerned about the things children are exposed to online.  Titanium Internet Security enables parents to help make smart choices for their children, balancing the freedom to explore the Internet, while providing the ability to control and monitor kids’ online access and content. With a three-PC license, parents can use Titanium Internet Security to protect multiple devices in their home. In addition, Titanium Internet Security offers data theft prevention that protects private information such as credit card numbers, email address and passwords, while also optimizing PC performance and safeguarding users’ privacy.

Another product is Maximum Security, whereby consumers can utilise Trend Micro’s Online Guardian, a parental control software that provides Internet monitoring for social networking and content; Trend Micro DirectPass, a password manager; and Trend Micro SafeSync, a secure online storage vault that will keep up to 5GB of important documents, pictures and videos backed up in the cloud. Titanium Maximum Security customers receive three licenses that can be used on multiple devices including PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Titanium Maximum Security users will have access to the Trend Micro Vault, which keeps important documents secure, and allows users to remotely lock it if the computer is lost or stolen.  For those with more devices and data, Trend Micro offers Titanium Premium Security that allows for two additional licenses for a total of five, and 25GB of SafeSync secure online storage.

Finally there is Titanium Internet Security for Mac, which provides Mac users with security, including protection against spam, viruses, malware, parental controls and protection on social networking sites.
