    Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2011

    Posted January 3, 2011 - 10:02 pm

    There is a lot to be said for minimalism, but with Titanium Internet Security 2011 ($70 for one year, three PCs, as of 12/2/2010), Trend Micro takes it to the extreme. The suite's user interface is one of the most simplistic and stripped-down of the security apps we tested. A simple summary of threats stopped, a link to the utility's parental controls, and the date that your subscription expires are all the information the primary display offers. Below that, you can choose to scan your system, configure options, or check your logs. A large blue "Tools" button is actually a red herring, telling you only whether parental controls and "data theft prevention" (a rather useless utility that mysteriously claims to "prevent hackers from stealing credit card numbers, passwords" and so forth) are turned on.
