Trend Micro Revamps Entire Product Line With 'Titanium'

Trend Micro's new "Titanium" product line will use cloud computing techniques with the goal of detecting malware more quickly

Following up Norton's new product launch early Wednesday, Trend Micro announced an overhaul of its entire home user product line on Wednesday, under the moniker "Titanium." The new products, Titanium Internet Security, Titanium Maximum Security, and Titanium Antivirus+, include new features that use cloud computing for malware detection.

Malware changes quickly these days--Trend Micro notes that the average piece of malware stays in circulation for only about three days (and in some cases, it lasts only 15 minutes before a new variant comes along). Trend Micro's decision to move to the cloud is based on the idea of catching malware before it gets to your PC.

Trend Micro uses a reputation database on its servers to identify whether or not a file is safe based on various factors. The company claims that this shift to Internet-based detection should reduce its product line's impact on your PC's performance. The real test, of course, will be when we have a chance to try out Titanium for ourselves.

Trend Micro's new Titanium product line is available now through its Website. Prices start at $40 for Titanium Antivirus+, $50 for Titanium Internet Security, and $60 for Titanium Maximum Security.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
