AUCKLAND, November 22, 2018 – Trend Micro, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced Trend Micro Security for Microsoft Edge. This world first app provides consumers with an additional layer of security for Windows 10 in S mode devices sold across Australia and New Zealand by extending the protection of Trend Micro’s flagship multi-device consumer security solution, Trend Micro Maximum Security.
Kiwis have lost over $26 million to online scams and fraud in so far this year, and cybercriminals see the Internet as an attractive access point to contact, trick and prey on unsuspecting consumers. Trend Micro Security makes browsing safer and more enjoyable on operating systems such as Windows 10 and is the world’s first Windows 10 in S Mode security solution sold through retail, reinforcing Trend Micro’s leadership and commitment to providing the most comprehensive protection across every aspect of consumers’ digital lives.
“Everyday consumers are expected to remember a multitude of passwords, are interrupted by annoying and intrusive ads and are faced with “device agnostic” threats such as phishing and identity theft scams,” said Tim Falinski, APAC Senior Director, Consumer for Trend Micro.
“All of these factors affect the way consumers go online and the experience they have. It’s important that security underpins all online activity, and with Trend Micro Security for Microsoft Edge, consumers will have a greater peace of mind that they are protected – however they choose to go online.”
“I see security as playing an important part of the complete package for any new PC or device sale. With an increasing proportion of new PCs now including Windows 10 in S mode, it has become essential for customers to have a compatible security solution, such as Trend Micro Security, when purchasing these new devices in store and online.” said Glen Gregory, Harvey Norman National Business Manager.
The Trend Micro Security Edge Extension provides enhanced protection to Microsoft Edge, the default web browser available on Windows 10 in S mode, and has the following features:
“It’s been great to work side by side with Trend Micro, to expand the ecosystem of security applications in the Microsoft Store to include “Trend Micro Security” for Windows 10 users, particularly those using devices in S mode. This application provides an additional layer of protection to keep customers safe and secure.” said Darin Fish, Partner Group Program Manager, Microsoft.
Trend Micro Security for Microsoft Edge is available now for new and current Trend Micro Maximum Security customers as part of their license, and is also available via the Microsoft App store.
