CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Trend Micro™ Incorporated
(TYO: 4704;TSE:4704), a global leader in consumer digital information
security, announced three new apps for Windows 8 available through the Windows
Store. In addition to these innovative new apps that enable consumers to
effortlessly protect their digital lives, Trend Micro also made improvements
to the Titanium family of products to stay ahead of consumer concerns
regarding PC security.

Trend Micro Trio of New Apps for Windows 8

Trend Micro™ has developed a trio of new apps that are now available for
download through the Windows Store. The first app, Trend Micro™ SafeGuard, is
a tablet- optimized web browser with built-in security technology for use with
Windows 8. Users will enjoy a browsing experience that includes Safe Search
Results ratings on major search engines like Bing, Google, and Yahoo, as well
as social networking security on leading sites like Facebook, Twitter,
Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google+. In a recent survey conducted by Trend Micro
with consumers in the US, Australia and UK, 55% of respondants said that they
were likely to look for a browser that included security plug-ins like those
included in SafeGuard. Trend Micro's SafeGuard is always free for download in
the Windows Store and is also included in Titanium subscriptions.

Trend Micro's Go Everywhere app will also be released through the Windows
Store. A simple-to-use solution that will help protect Windows 8 tablet PCs
from loss or theft, Trend Micro's Go Everywhere includes functionality that
will locate tablets with just one click. Whether the missing device was
misplaced on a user's travels or as nearby as the cushions of their couch,
Trend Micro Go Everywhere allows them to locate their device using a worldwide
Google map, or by quickly sounding a one minute alarm. Either way, Trend Micro
has got users covered on their Windows 8 tablets and PCs. The beta version of
the app is available for a limited time free in the Windows Store, and is also
available to Titanium Maximum Security subscribers free of charge.

Trend Micro's DirectPass, coming soon, will feature a new free app in the
Windows Store, as well as a compatible version of DirectPass for Windows 8
desktops. Perfect for synced password protection and management across both
environments, DirectPass helps make saving passwords online easy by encrypting
saved passwords and helping provide an extra layer of security for banking and
financial transactions. Among its key features, Trend Micro DirectPass
provides in-the-cloud synchronization across multiple devices, making password
management easy while in the office, at home, or on the road.

Improvements to Titanium

Trend Micro has not only pioneered new apps to complement users' digital
experience on Windows 8, but has also made a number of improvements to its
flagship security product, Titanium, in order to give users one of the best
possible security experiences and freedom to explore with Windows 8 and Trend
Micro™ Titanium. Trend Micro™ Titanium™ makes it easy to to safely stay
connect to family friends and colleagues with its innovative social networking
security. Titanium's Privacy Scanner for Facebook is a new solution that
lets users stay on top of their Facebook settings, allowing them control of
who sees what on their online profiles. Also new to Titanium this year is
expanded social networking protection – now users can quickly and easily
identify and manage dangerous links on Facebook and Twitter but also on other
social networking sites like Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, MySpace, Mixi, and
Sina Weibo.

Trend Micro™ Titanium's protection promises not to slow users down. Using less
disk space and memory than some other competitive products, Trend Micro™
Titanium™ was built with performance in mind and is a "set it and forget it"
solution that works seamlessly in the background, allowing users to
effortlessly enjoy the protection of Trend Micro's technology.

Trend Micro™ Titanium™ makes it easy for users to share their memories and
files with family and friends in the cloud through Trend Micro™ SafeSync,
which is a standard add-on to Titanium™ Maximum Security. With a 5 GB SafeSync
account at their fingertips, Titanium™ Maximum Security users can sync and
store photos, music, videos, and other important files and easily send them to
friends on any operating system.

Titanium™ makes it easy for parents to allow their children the freedom to
explore the Internet while also staying safe with additional parental
controls. With straightforward tools to filter online content and control
application access, limit Internet time, and detailed reports about Internet
usage, Titanium's parental controls are a complement to Windows 8's built-in
parental controls.
