Slightly Overloaded System Security Guardian
Trend Micro Internet Security Pro is an all-in-one security solution that has been developed to keep your PC trouble free by taking care of all possible threats of all kinds.
If the suite finds that your system does not have enough memory to run it, it warns you. If there are other anti-spyware programs such as Spybot for example, it will uninstall it if you allow it to.
Once installed, it’s a good idea to register the program as a few additional features are given access to. Trend Micro Internet Security also scans Windows for any vulnerability fixed that you may have not updated to.
There are a few features like Data Theft Protection, which stops any credit card number or personal information from being sent out through instant messengers for example. You can also add information to be protected. There are some other features for stopping any unwanted access to your PC. Any new computers that appear on your LAN can be scanned after every few minutes and you can choose to stop them from accessing your PC—this is useful if you’re on a public LAN or WAN. The Parental Controls are also pretty advanced in the sense that you can simply check the boxes of the types of content you want to block. You can also manually make changes to add or remove sites from the block list.
The memory consumption of the antivirus is pretty high and we recorded around 55—60 MB on idle state. Even after you stop the suite, there are still a few running services consuming some memory like most other suites of its kind. A screenshot-filled manual with an explanation of features is provided with the software, but the software itself is fairly easy to use after a few minutes.
Trend Micro Internet Security Pro is just another security suite, which doesn’t really stand out among the rest. It does the job of handling viruses and security threats well but is a little heavy on the system. The price tag of Rs. 2,760 is asking a lot, especially when there are free alternatives available online.
