Trend Micro Antivirus is a powerful malware detection tool that works to boost your Mac's efficiency in identifying and blocking unwanted software and intrusive processes. It finds the right balance between protection and usability and does so in a way that is accessible to most users.
Solid malware blocking ability: Trend Micro Antivirus is incredibly efficient in detecting potential problems. This includes checking social media privacy settings, managing your passwords and other encrypted data on your machine, and ensuring proper security for your files when transferring them.
Builds on a strong entry-level tool: Trend Micro Antivirus builds up the entry-level suite in many ways, adding much-needed security tools like password management and online backup.
Not always a good tool for fixing existing problems: While Trend Micro will protect your machine against intrusion and infection, it's not as effective in cleaning up an already messy system. Additionally, there are some overzealous protections built in to the system, which can be altered but could be an impediment for some users.
If you are looking for a powerful antivirus and antimalware app combined with a number of other powerful tools to protect your personal data and your Mac, then Trend Micro Antivirus is a good fit at a reasonable price.
