Editors' Review

+

Trend Micro Maximum Security is a complete personal security package. Combining the precise scanning engine of Trend Micro Antivirus+ and the comprehensive toolkit of Internet Security, Maximum Security covers not only Mac and PC but also your Android device.

Pros

Nice interface: Maximum Security's gray-white background, expandable menus, and oversized buttons stay in line with Trend Micro's minimalist design. A large Start button performs a quick scan, and there's a drop-down menu to select full or custom scans.

XP tested and 7 and 8 secured: Trend Micro's prowess was praised by AV-Test in its recent comparison of Internet security suites that still support Windows XP. The corporate version was ranked as the top-performing suite in AV-Test's XP comparison tests, while the consumer package earned a protection rating of 97 percent via AV-Comparatives -- and without significant impact on system resources.

Comprehensive online protection: True to its name, Maximum Security aims to protect all aspects of your online life and prevent problems before they happen, through features like password filling, site-reputation checks, a privacy scanner, and social networking protections. Parental controls allow you to lock down Net activity and programs based on your family computer usage and habits. Password filling mean you don't have to remember authentications, and site reputation keeps you away from the more questionable domains.

Cons

No prescan: Trend Micro's installation process is usually pretty quick; however, if the system is already under duress from malware attacks and takeovers, setup can be painfully slow. Without the prescan ability like that found in other antivirus suites, installing on a troubled system and performing a cleaning operation is more time consuming.

Multiple packages: The installer for Maximum Security is separate from the Password Manager. To get the website security check and password filling to work, additional extensions/add-ons and a toolbar are required post-installation. Uninstallation of the Password Manager is also separate from Maximum Security removal.

Bottom Line

Trend Micro Maximum Security offers exceptional protection for both consumer and business users. By continuing to support Windows XP, as well as keeping current with stylish UI updates, Trend Micro demonstrates awareness of customer needs. Parental settings limit your exposure to malware. First-time setup can be a chore, due to the lack of a prescan option, making cleanup jobs difficult. Multiple service setups are the price you pay to get comprehensive coverage of your digital life. These minor flaws are temporary, as after the initial setup, Maximum Security's day-to-day performance is more than satisfactory.

"Mostly fine, occasional let-downs"

September 18, 2014  |  By tarachos

 |  Version: Trend Micro Maximum Security 8.0.1133

Pros

Set and forget
Low hit on resources

Cons

Crashes
Hit and miss on filtering dodgy emails
Failed to detect malicious browser add-in
Costly renewal

Summary

Most of the time Trend Micro does its work admirably in the background. However, after two years of using it I shall almost certainly change back to something like Kaspersky when my renewal comes up. Why?
1. Soluto regularly reports that TM has crashed. This is unacceptable for such vital software. I would say that occurs around once a week.
2. Too many obviously spammy emails are allowed through. At present it's a plague of emails claiming to send me invoices. I've also lost the integration with Microsoft Outlook that provided an additional tab, but I'm not clear whether the fault is with TM or MS.
3. The other week, I suddenly found that the snap.do toolbar and search engine had installed itself in all my browsers - this despite TM scanning all downloads. Googling the issue shows that it is very well known. I am highly surprised that TM didn't detect it.
4. When I renewed last December, processes meant that I was unable to do so by purchasing the software at a discount. I was forced to use their direct renewal, which was buggy and meant paying the full price of £60 to cover our PCs. I don't think it's worth that, sorry.
