It’s that time of year again—time to launch the newest version of our security software for home and home office use. We’re always excited to introduce new and improved security products that will help make the cyber-world and your digital life safer. And this year is no exception. Watch the overview video to learn more.
What’s New for 2015
Our Trend Micro Security 2015 products have expanded to offer comprehensive privacy and protection anytime, anywhere, and on any device. Trend Micro Security now works across a whole range of the most popular digital platforms, including your PC, Mac, and mobile devices (Android™ and now Apple iOS). In short, this new version of Trend Micro Security will help protect against threats, regardless of your device or operating system.
To improve online privacy protection, the Trend Micro Security 2015 Privacy Scanner analyses your settings on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and now LinkedIn. Managing your online privacy and security in this highly connected world is something you can’t afford to overlook. With Trend Micro Security 2015, it’s easy to optimize your privacy settings to keep strangers and cybercriminals out of your private business, and to maintain your online reputation.
The risks are real: According to a 2013 report on fraud by Javelin Strategy and Research, there is a new victim of identity fraud every 3 seconds.
In addition to adding more and better security to our family of consumer products, we’ve also added other advanced features that we know you will like—starting with a PC Health Checkup. This tool will help fix common PC problems while cleaning and optimizing your computers to restore them to their top speed.
Another key feature of our latest product is a powerful password manager. A recent online poll sponsored by Trend Micro revealed that more than 66% of Internet users let their browsers save their passwords. This is definitely not a good practice because a cybercriminal could easily hack your browser and steal your passwords, which can lead to identity theft and worse.
The password manager in Trend Micro Security software encrypts all your online passwords, allowing you to easily log into websites without fear of password theft. It also works across multiple devices, and provides a password generator to stop the common but very unsafe practice of using the same password for multiple accounts.
Mobile Security Enhancements
The Maximum and Premium versions of Security 2015 include licenses that can be used for security on your mobile devices (Android and iOS) too, and even has tools to optimize battery use for your Android. This latest version of Trend Micro™ Mobile Security also makes mobile device switching easy, letting you back up and transfer contacts between your Android and iOS devices, whether iPhone or iPad. This is perfect if you are considering switching smartphone platforms or telecom carriers. Watch the video to learn more about mobile security.
We believe you should be able use the Internet easily and fearlessly, and our updated products reflect that belief. We’re committed to helping make your online experience safer—without complicating things or slowing down you or your devices.

Why Security Is as Necessary as Ever
If you have been following the news, you can’t have missed the long string of cyber-attacks and hacking incidents at major retailers over the past year. Cybercriminals aren’t going away. In fact, they seem to be multiplying and become more audacious and successful in their hack attacks. So the need for online security remains strong.
