Editors' review

Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security is the second-highest antivirus offering from Trend Micro. In addition to a robust malware scanner, Titanium Maximum Security offers a built-in password manager, an in-app Web browser, and a packaged set of tools for protecting and managing your Android device. This review focuses on desktop performance.

Pros

Design: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security shares the same interface as its lesser brothers, the Antivirus and Internet Security editions. The interface has a clean, organized menu layout. Tabs have nice mouseover effects, and the overall app has a modern feel and original visual direction. Though not exactly minimal, Titanium Maximum Security's five-tab header layout feels uncluttered and easy to navigate.

Scanning: One option we appreciate is the ability to shut down the PC after finishing a scan. This is present during the scanning process, so you don't have to dig through menus. That's great, because we often want to shut down after running long tests, especially full scans -- this way you can initiate overnight scanning and go to bed. Though full scans are naturally longer, we found the quick scan especially fast and responsive.

Security: Trend Micro quickly responds to security vulnerabilities and automatically removes suspected Trojan horses and malicious files. When we plugged in an infected disk, Titanium Maximum Security quickly deleted the file and displayed a notification from the taskbar with assuring language. Third-party tester AV-Test confirms Titanium Maximum Security's effective protection: It scored a perfect 100 for protection in malware scanning and beating industry averages.

Cons

Default toolbar installation: Titanium Maximum Security installs a toolbar in popular browsers like Chrome and Firefox without opt-in or -out during installation. Though that practice is common, it's annoying, and you may be caught by surprise. Luckily, uninstallation is as simple as unchecking the box in the settings panel.

Aggressive: Titanium Maximum Security sometimes considers certain legitimate programs to be malicious and prevents them from running, taking a "better safe than sorry" approach. Quitting notifications individually can be a chore, though you can switch out this behavior in the settings menu.

Bottom Line

Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security combines good design with excellent malware protection. Apart from a few quirks, it demonstrates a nice balance of considerate features, and it really shines in up-to-date security, with the numbers to prove it.

    Version: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2013 6.0.1215

    Pros

    Great features!
    Great Protection!

    Cons

    Summary

    I have use Trend Micro for a long time and have not experience a virus or any security issues while using this service. I have enjoyed using the Safesync feature to back up important file off the computer which I can access on my phone. This was helpful when I went to the Animal Hospital for an emergency and of course I didn't have time to bring any files and I had fill out paperwork asking for my pet's medical history. I was able to access all the files on my phone in order to correctly fill out the paperwork.

    "Install and let it do its job"

    June 24, 2013   |   By Pastor_Geek

    Version: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2013 6.0.1215

    Pros

    Install is straightforward.
    Auto updates.
    Updates regularly generated by Trend.
    Reliable.

    Cons

    None I can think of...I want an install-and-forget a/v solution that doesn't impede performance and this is it.

    Summary

    I became a fan of Trend Micro products from the business-side of life first, through using Server Protect and Office Protect. I don't recall encountering any problems with the software, updates, etc. and a user had to try very hard to infect a box. That experience, plus another a/v provider's software literally bringing my home PC to its knees even when running in the background, brought me to Trend's "PC-cillin." And I haven't looked back and continue to upgrade within Trend's product line. I want a/v protection that is reliable, constantly updating, install-and-forget, affordable, and takes no prisoners if a bug appears: Trend lives up to that in every product. Their's is the only product I recommend. Ever.

    "Complete Transparent Coverage"

    June 20, 2013   |   By GWizmo

    Version: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2013 6.0.1215

    Pros

    Easy Multi-license options for households with more than one computer.
    Very transparent updates and protection.
    Very easy to setup and renew.
    Also very complete on the protection and the options for how you wish to resolve conflicts.
    Not as heavy as others on false positives!!

    Cons

    Compared to others, I have no complaints at all.

    Summary

    I use it on our home computers and strongly suggest it on computers I have setup for friends and family.
    Happy customer for more than 6 years!

    "Light weight with heavy performance"

    June 01, 2013   |   By linnemeyerhere

    Version: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2013 6.0.1215

    Pros

    Easy to use, powerful, customize-able, automatic updates

    Cons

    Well it's not free.....but I've always used paid versions.
    Seems second to the age old AMD vs Intel arguments nothing gets computer people talking like asking "what AV are you using" and then stand back.

    Summary

    I've tried literally 80% of all the AV's out. But I was running XP. Since switching to W7 64 I've used 4 different AV solutions. I have to say they all had pro's and cons except for one which was the worst. My web designer had me switch back to TM and it's been rock solid for many years. I've always said that the first line of defense online must always be the operator and then the AV. Trend Micro has been there for me when even my judgement wasn't the best and that's what it's all about.

    May 16, 2013   |   By lrwillie520

    Version: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2013 6.0.1215

    Pros

    Affordable
    Constantly running in background

    Love the Mobile App

    Cons

    None at this time.

    Summary

    Trend Titanium is the best protection. I have been using Trend for several years with no problems or issues. Protection is very, very good!! My family use it and love it better than what we were using before at which we had several issues with protection. I do and have recommend it to all my family members and friends!

    "Truly Maximum Protection"

    May 13, 2013   |   By balrog9

    Version: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2013 6.0.1215

    Pros

    Comprehensive Cyber Security Suite
    Very effective
    A Lot Of Flexibility
    A Product I Trust
    A Reasonable Price
    Various Scan Settings, Scan In Background, Scan Email (Windows Mail Only)

    Cons

    Sometimes Heavy Handed On Websites Not On The Approved List
    No Option To Automatically Add The Blocked Page To Approved List and Open.
    Sometimes Is Triggered By Actions Of Unsigned Software And Must Have Exceptions Added Or Deactivated Until Install Is Complete.
    No Support For Mozilla Thunderbird Or Other 3rd Party Email Clients.

    Summary

    I have used Trend Micro Security Suite since it was PC-Cillin back in '95. This is definitely the most comprehensive suite for security in its price category that I have seen. It is very thorough, sometimes a little too heavy handed in blocking programs from installing even though they are from a trusted source and I am required to enter an exception, or two or three but that minor annoyance is worth it to have a product that I am confident and comfortable with to protect my systems and network from the various cyber-threats that exist today.
