Trend Micro launches free web browsing security application

The new browsing tool protects iPhone and iPod touch users from web threats by blocking access to malicious websites

By CBR Staff Writer

Trend Micro has launched its Trend Smart Surfing, a free web browsing security application for iPhone and iPod touch that is reported to offer another layer of protection against web threats by blocking access to malicious websites.

According to Trend Micro, Trend Smart Surfing is an internet browsing tool, which uses its web reputation technology, a component of the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, to block users of iPhone and iPod touch from unintentionally visiting websites that may contain malicious content designed to steal confidential information and personal data.

The Trend Micro Smart Protection Network is a cloud-client infrastructure that checks the security of more than five billion URL, e-mail, and file queries daily, providing customers with real-time protection against web threats, said Trend Micro.

The company said that key features of Smart Surfing include: in-depth browser security powered by the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network that blocks access to malicious web pages; color-coded search results that make it easy to identify harmful web pages; three protection strength levels that users can modify according to their needs; and able to support browsing of multiple web pages at the same time.
