Trend Micro

Trend Micro Antivirus is a good program with well rated antivirus protection, and a simple, straightforward interface that users will appreciate. Anyone looking for additional features will be disappointed with this suite, but it offers good protection at a fair price.
Trend Micro Antivirus does its job well, but it needs to update some of the features it no longer offers.

Plans & Pricing

Trend Micro Maximum Security has an introductory price of $40 for up to five devices for a single year—the MSRP after the introductory period is $90. If you need to cover 10 devices, the price is still $40 for the first year and $100 after that. Overall, these subscription prices are on par with many of the other major antivirus suites.


Taking a look at AV-Test’s March and April 2020 results, Trend Micro Internet Security (the lower-tiered suite with the same security engine) scored 100 percent in January and February on the zero-day and web/email threats test with 304 samples. It also achieved 100 percent in both months on the widespread and prevalent malware test with more than 20,000 samples.


Trend Micro’s pricing is good and its protection gets mostly top marks from three different testing outfits. Trend Micro employs a variety of different protection layers including regular scanning, behavioral analysis, and artificial intelligence.
While its protection is good for malware and zero-day threats, the data-protection feature needs a little work. It ignored activity inside a well-known desktop program, allowing me to send out purportedly protected data. The social networking privacy feature also needs a revamp or should be dumped.
