Bzz Review: Trend Micro Titanium Max Security

I'm not sure if I mentioned it or not, but I was offered a really awesome Bzz Campaign a month or so ago and I was give a free subscription to Trend Micro's new security software: Trend Micro Titanium. I didn't want to just jump in and say how great it was. I tend to have a lot of problems with spyware, etc. So I really wanted to put this program through its paces before I made my judgement. The result: I am really happy with this program!
Trend Micro Titanium can be purchased at different levels of security, but for this trial I was given the Maximum Security Version (yahoo!) so I could really give this baby a try. Installation was very easy - I did have to remove my free version of AVG before it could install - you just open up the installer and let it do its thing. Upon opening for the first time, you can go into your account and select the different things you want the program to focus on or you can just go with the suggested setup (that's what I did - I'm not confident enough to know I set things up right).

What are the benefits of Trend Micro Titanium?
Well, one thing that really stood out with this program is that is actually works through your entire network of devices in your house - not just your main computer it's installed on. This covered my desktop, my husband's laptop, and even our smart phones! How cool is that?

Of course, you get protection against malware, spyware and other threats like programs that capture your passwords and credit card numbers. You can also set up parental controls for your network to keep your kids safe online. Titanium also defends your computer from issues that can infiltrate your system through social network sites like Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter.

How does it work?
I will not lie, I'm not so internet-security-savvy. I know my way around the things I need to use on my computer, but other than that I am kind of a ditz. This program took care of that for me by knowing what it was doing :) Even if I don't do anything else with the program, it always scans my computer 2 times a week to make sure my system is clean. The coolest thing = since I started using Titanium Max Security, I have had no threats found on any of the scans. The program keeps my computer clean without having to ask me constantly if I want to allow things like other software - those annoy the heck out of me - this one just does the work it knows it should to keep my info safe. I just set it and forgot about it :)

What are the extra features?
A neat feature about this software is that you can actually do a system tune up! You just choose the option from the menu and let it go so gain improved performance from your machine.

Also, if your laptop is ever stolen or you leave it somewhere and you're worried about someone getting into your files, you can actually locate and lock your files remotely or even wipe your data if you have to. I had never heard of a security program with this option before and it is really a comforting idea. This remote file deletion is available on your smartphone too so all your devices are safe even if they are taken.

How can you get in on this?
Currently, you can get $30 off Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security on the Trend Micro Website using code BZZ30 at checkout. This can make for a really great deal on this software. If you're more of an in-store purchaser, Trend Micro Titanium can be found at most mass retailers such as Best Buy, etc.

What's my final verdict?
I have to say, I am really glad Bzz Agent chose me to try this program. This has really turned out to be the perfect software for me - it's very user friendly and you can literally set it up once and forget about it! You can involve yourself with the program as much or as little as you want and it will still keep your computers and devices safe and sound. My recent scan speaks for itself: Not Threats Found :) That's a beautiful phrase. I have felt the horrible sinking in my stomach when I got a virus (I've had a few, including win32 <--- a really nasty one), and now I feel like I don't have to worry about that anymore because this program has really got my back :) I highly recommend Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security for both computer geeks and casual device users alike. It has great features that really set it apart from the competition and it has worked great for me.
