Titanium Maximum Security 2014 Key Features
Titanium Maximum Security 2014 is loaded with features that will help keep your computer, your data and your family safer. Features include:
- Comprehensive cloud-based Internet security – Titanium Maximum Security is powered by Trend Micro’s cloud security infrastructure, Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™, that stops threats in cyberspace. You will get real-time antivirus and malware scanning to provide always-on Internet protection to keep you safe from the latest threats. Pre-set web threat protection blocks malicious links in emails, instant messages, or websites, in order to protect you from online phishing scams from stealing credit cards or other personal, financial information.
- Two-way firewall – Titanium’s easy to use bi-directional firewall stops hackers from getting into your PC and stops malware from “phoning home” without your knowledge. Firewall comes with a number of pre-configured rules, making it easy to use for people of all skill levels.
- Parental controls – Trend Micro’s parental controls give you an easy way to protect your children from inappropriate websites, get reports about what they do online, as well as limit Internet time. You can choose from a number of pre-configured profiles – Child, Teen or Mature Teen – each of which can be customized to block access to particular types of content. The settings can be applied to any or all users of the computer/device.
- Data protection – With Titanium Maximum Security’s data theft prevention features, you can easily prevent hackers and spyware from stealing credit card numbers, passwords, email addresses, and other sensitive data. Specify what types of information that is not to be permitted to leave your computer (e.g. a credit card). The tool can be limited to particular users and/or particular communication methods (web, email, IM).
- Encrypted storage – Create encrypted and password-protected areas on your PC – known as Trend Micro Vault – where you can store your most sensitive files. In addition to protecting your data, the Vault also performs a periodic check with Trend Micro’s servers to see whether your computer has been reported as lost or stolen (something which you can easily do via an online web form). If it has been, the Vault will be automatically locked and inaccessible – even to somebody using the correct password. After recovering a lost computer, you can unseal the Vault only once you have validated your identity.
- Make sure deleted files stay deleted – Deleting a file from your computer will just remove the directory information used to find it, but not the actual data. With Trend Micro’s Secure Erase feature, deleted files get overwritten with random data, making sure the contents can’t be retrieved. Still not sure it’s gone? Use the Permanent Erase option to overwrite files seven times, meeting United States government data security standards!
- 5 GB of online storage space – Titanium Maximum Security software includes 5 GB of SafeSync online storage space to keep your important files backed up, synchronized, and secure. Trend Micro™ SafeSync™ provides protection and allows you to share all of your files, photos, videos and music. You will have access to your multimedia and private files from any online device anywhere, and at all times. For additional online storage space (and protection for more devices), see Titanium Premium Security.
- System Tuner – The Trend Micro system tuner provides you with a one-click way to tune up your PC, for example by recovering disk space, making Microsoft Windows start faster, cleaning out your instant messaging history, and optimizing your computer’s performance. Even schedule regular, automatic tune-ups of your operating system to make sure your PC runs smoothly at all times.
- Smartphone & tablet security – With Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security, you can extend Trend Micro’s Internet security tools to your Android smartphone or tablet. The mobile security feature provides protection from viruses and SMS spam and works with various versions of the Windows Mobile and Symbian operating systems.
- Easy-to-use interface – Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security has a clean and simple interface that is very easy to use. Easy to read graphic reports will give you the details about any Internet threats that attack your computer. Drill down into detailed logs with just one click. To make Internet security a bit more “fun”, Titanium can also very easily be personalized by use of included images, or your own photos.
- …and much more including the ability to remotely lock files in case of computer theft, authentication of wireless hotspots and WiFi networks, and robust anti-phishing features to keep you safe online, and antispam to keep your email inbox clean.
Trend Micro also offers a Premium Service Plan for Titanium Maximum Security. This optional service plan includes support to get your product up and running, emergency 24/7 support, and virus & spyware removal. The price of Titanium Maximum Security with Premium Service Plan is $109.95.

Getting better and better!
This product is only getting better and better. For a while I tried another brand, but I'm happy to be back with Trend Micro. It seems like some other companies get worse and worse as they get more popular, but Trend Micro has always been a big company, and always been good. No surprises!
Works great on my computer and smartphone
I am using Titanium Maximum Security by Trend Micro on my computer and on my Android smartphone. It’s working great! No problems installing either, and it’s working well with Windows 8. I’m happy!
Happy that it works for Macs AND PCs
I started using Titanium Maximum Security when it was just a great, easy-to-use security solution with integrated PC tuneup tools. Since then, I have switched to a Mac, but the kids still have a PC for school work and play. I was very happy when I realized that Maximum Security now works for Macs AND PCs (as well as tablets, but we don’t have any of those). The kids and I also think it’s fun that we can use our own photos to “customize” the software. Not a crucial thing, obviously, but fun!
I really like that it leaves me alone!!
What I like the most about Trend Micro Titanium is that it leaves me alone!! I was using another Internet Security program in the past, and it was constantly bugging me and giving me notifications of updates and things like that. Titanium Internet Security doesn’t do that (phew!!)!
The interface confused me a little at first
The interface confused me a little at first but that’s just because I was used to another program. Now I find it super easy to navigate and I like the frequent updates and that the program seems to be doing its job.
Trend Micro life-timer
I am a Trend Micro life-timer – I have used it for years and never ever had a virus. The new version has only got easier to use and more effective. I’m very happy!
A couple of friends recommended Trend Micro
A couple of my friends recommended Trend Micro when I was looking for a new Internet security program. Now that I have tried it myself I’m happy that I followed their advice. I like how I can use it on three computers too. Now my wife’s PC, the kids’ computer, and my own laptop are protected.
Easy to install and to use
Titanium by Trend Micro is super easy to install and to use, and I feel safe knowing my computers are protected by one of the world’s largest antivirus brands.
Will be renewing my subscription
Easy to use, light on computer resources, great price. Pretty fast compared to other products I have tried. I haven’t had any problems with Trend Micro Internet Security, and will be renewing my subscription when it runs out.
One of the largest Internet security companies in the world
I like the fact that Trend Micro is one of the largest Internet security companies in the world. This way I can get top level security without being yet another Norton user. PC-cillin doesn’t seem to slow down my computer.
