Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus utilizes the cloud to leave a light footprint on your hardware, and it combines signature-based security with real-time protection. This program also takes advantage of the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, its cloud-based antivirus element, to gather information on new viruses from its online community. Then you are alerted of potential new threats through the software. Trend Micro Titanium doesn't simply rely on a local signature database to detect threats; it searches for patterns in file behavior and matches them with those of potential threats.

This antivirus software allows you to safely search the web by protecting you from malicious websites and online threats such as drive-by downloads. The unique Protection Network protects you from digital threats by assigning a score to websites, domains and individual pages. This score is based on factors like a site's age, location changes and other elements that could provide insight to a potential threat.

This program is very user-friendly. The interface is simple and easy to understand. The main console provides you with the current security level and the software scans for threats as you go. You can perform a manual scan at any time, choosing a quick scan or an in-depth scan. You can also do a custom scan, searching for threats in specific locations.

Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus + has solid online support options. The service hosts a searchable knowledgebase along with a discussion board, where you can discuss potential threats and compare notes on internet security measures with other users. You can also submit a case online for personalized assistance, or get in touch directly via telephone or live chat.

Despite an AV-Test certification, this antivirus software did not receive the highest scores we've seen, and other independent labs have not recently tested it. However, Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus + is easy to use, and it has plenty of features and good customer service.
