Trend Micro Antivirus Security 2016 Review

Introduction

Even though Trend Micro Security was released a couple of years back, it was able to establish a prominent place among other similar applications due to effective performance. It can look for potential threats and eliminate malware from your system without causing much hassle. It causes a very low impact on the system performance as well. However, it is not the cheapest antivirus product that you can download from the internet and you will have to pay around $100 per year for the subscription.

Protection

Trend Micro Security can look for all malware hidden inside all the stored files in your system. In addition, it keeps an eye on all the code running in your computer. Once the detection engine identifies a threat, you will be notified and you will have to take necessary measures to eliminate it. The virus database of Trend Micro Security is updated on a daily basis in order to help the users stay away from a majority of risks.

Performance

The performance of Trend Micro Security is impressive as well. You can access the PC Health Check functionality from the Device Screen and optimize your entire system. This can assist you to make your computer run better. You can also start scanning your system with just a single click. The Trend Micro Security is in a position to help you clean your privacy data. People who installed Trend Micro Security
Features have said that it functions very smoothly.

Features

Trend Micro Security does not offer many different impressive features. For example, you will not be able to receive backup software, webcam protection, virtual keyboard, software firewall or a vulnerability scanner along with Trend Micro Security. The main objective of Trend has been to deliver a powerful antivirus tool for the people in need and that’s why they have not included all those extra features. The company is planning to introduce them in the near future and they are trying hard to integrate them to the software without causing a major impact on system performance while running.

Easy To Use

Trend Micro Security has a blue and grey colored interface. It does not look bold and people can figure out what they are supposed to do. There is a button on the main interface and if your system is all right, you will be able to see a green colored circle around it. This button can be used to access full, quick or custom scan based on your requirements. However, it does not come with a 60 second scan, which can be seen in other competitor applications.

PC Load

Trend Micro Security has one of the fasted antivirus detection engines. You will be able to do a quick scan on an average computer within 4 minutes. Likewise, you can run a complete scan on your system in less than one hour.
