Trend Micro Internet Security 2010

The Good Trend Micro Internet Security Pro 2010 has one of the most comprehensive security suites we've seen, with everything covered from basic threat detection to a behavior-based prevention system and security for Symbian and Windows Mobile devices.

The Bad Virus detection and removal efficacy is hard to determine, its service is acceptable but not stellar. While Trend Micro Internet Security Pro offers browsing protection, launching a link from within the program feels sluggish and awkward.

The Bottom Line Trend Micro Internet Security Pro's broad feature set combined with its look and feel make it a serious contender, but its questionable efficacy and middling performance make it a program we're not recommending.

Trend Micro Internet Security 2010

If you're looking for a robust feature set from your security suite, and you're looking for an affordable price, you could do worse than Trend Micro's 2010 products. Trend Micro has refreshed it Internet Security Pro, Internet Security, and the stripped-down AntiVirus plus AntiSpyware packages; and according to the publisher, they gain significant performance enhancements.

According to Trend Micro, the programs boot times are 20 percent faster and use 40 percent less RAM, the download size is 25 percent smaller, and that the quick scan on Windows XP and Vista is 20 percent faster. There are new features, too. Although, many of them didn't make it into Trend Micro Internet Security or Trend Micro Antivirus and Antispyware suites. This is problematic because the feature set is Trend Micro strength, but to get it, you have to pay for the Pro version.
