A key part of an overall complete user protection strategy, Trend Micro Mobile Security greatly reduces complexity and costs compared to standalone mobile security and MDM solutions that require new management infrastructures.
Antivirus Protection When it comes to testing the effectiveness of a company's mobile antivirus engine, I rely on the results from independent labs. It's just safer than working with live malware samples. In AV-Test's(Opens in a new window) latest round of Android security testing, researchers found that Trend Micro detected 100 percent of the 2,186 malware samples used in the evaluation. This beats the already very high average detection score of 98 percent. Remarkably, AV-Test reports that Trend Micro generated no false-positive alerts.
Safe Browsing and Parental Controls Not every attack comes from malware. Malicious code hidden in websites can hurt your Android phone the same as your desktop, and phishing scams are just as dangerous on mobile. Trend Micro provides a Safe Browsing feature that scans websites as they load for anything malicious, and protects you from known phishing sites. In my testing, the app easily blocked the Anti-Malware Test Standards Organization's test site, which is designed to trigger phishing detection in security apps.
Call Blocking, Back Up, and Social Scan In addition to defending against the usual threats, Trend Micro has followed the trend set by other security apps and included a tool for blocking calls and text messages. You can configure what you want the app to do when a blocked caller tries to reach you, including sending out custom automated SMS messages. The tool can also be set to block only numbers you've blacklisted, accept only numbers you've whitelisted, or accept only whitelisted numbers plus anonymous callers.
Trend Micro acquired Identum in February 2008 for an undisclosed sum. Identum, which was founded in and later spun-off from the University of Bristol cryptography department, developed ID-based email encryption software. Identum's chairman was serial entrepreneur, Steve Purdham. The two companies were originally in talks for Trend Micro to license Identum's technology, but Trend Micro later decided to purchase the firm outright. Identum was renamed Trend Micro (Bristol) and its encryption technology was integrated into existing Trend Micro products. Existing Identum products were continued but sold under the Trend Micro brand. Also that year, Trend Micro sued Barracuda Networks for the latter's distribution of ClamAV as part of a security package. Trend Micro claimed that Barracuda's use of ClamAV infringed on a software patent owned by Trend Micro for filtering viruses on an Internet gateway. On 19 May 2011, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a Final Rejection in the reexamination of Trend Micro's U.S. patent 5,623,600.
Trend Micro acquired UK-based humyo in June 2010 for an undisclosed sum. humyo provided cloud-based data storage and synchronization services to small businesses and individuals. Later that year, in November, Trend Micro acquired Mobile Armor. Mobile Armor was a developer of full disk, file and folder, and removable media encryption for mobile devices. Trend Micro integrated the company's technology into a centrally-managed platform for mobile device security.
In June 2008, Trend Micro introduced Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, a cloud-client content security infrastructure that delivers global threat intelligence to protect customers from online threats, such as data stealing malware, phishing attacks, and other web, email, and mobile threats. In 2012, Trend Micro added big data analytics to its Smart Protection Network. Big data analytics allow the network to use behavioral-based identification methods to identify new security threats. The network also combines in-the-cloud technologies with other client-based antivirus technologies to reduce dependency on conventional pattern file downloads on the endpoint. Threat information from Trend Micro's Smart Protection Network is deployed in real time to the company's security software portfolio. Trend Micro's report on EU's General Data Protection Regulation showed an increase in extortion attempts as organizations try to comply with EU privacy laws.
The main advantage of using Trend Micro Mobile security is, you get easy password management access. Moreover, the application is capable of working and protecting multiple devices.

Trend Micro Maximum Security leaves out many features you might expect from a high-end security suite, like a firewall, backup or webcam protection. Its multi-platform support and five-device license puts it ahead of the lesser packages, though, and the suite is also easy to use, with an accurate engine, quality URL blocking and some capable mobile apps. If its feature set matches your needs, take the 30-day trial for a spin, see how it works for you.
Malicious apps are not the only concern on your mobile phones, it is also capable of storing large amount of data. Nowadays, mobile phones can keep photos, text messages, audio and video files, as well as other important documents for your work and your personal life. Having so much data on your mobile phone is already a good reason to think of security and privacy. Thus, we encourage you to install an Antivirus software on your mobile phones.
Upon completion of the install, user is prompted to accept the license agreement, privacy and data collection notice. While the user is given a short tour of the app, an initial scan will run on the background to identify security and privacy concerns on your mobile phone. The result of the initial scan is summarized in a report together with recommendations that you can review later. 2b1af7f3a8
