Trend Micro has updated its Titanium security suite for home office users.
The company said that the suite, which includes Windows, MacOS and Android security components, would provide a unified security platform across desktops, notebooks, handsets and tablets.
In addition to traditional anti-malware and web security tools, the Windows package provides users with access management tools. Also included are free utilities for Facebook which can check profile pages for possible privacy exposures and alert users of suspicious or malicious links in news feeds.
For Mac users, the update will also bring protection against malware and phishing, with the ability to scan for both OS X attacks and Windows malware, which could be passed along to PC users.
On the mobile side, the company is tying its Android application to the Smart Protection network. That will allow users to instantly profile applications and check for reports of suspicious behaviour or data harvesting.
The company is also debuting Longevity, a management tool which allows users to conserve battery life by shutting down non-essential components and activity.
Customers will also be able to purchase all three versions of the Titanium security package through a single licence.
Trend Micro consumer security advocate Shannon McCarty-Caplan told V3 that the move was part of a larger effort by the company to unify its mobile and desktop brands for multiple platforms.
"What you will see across those product lines is solutions for PC, Mac and mobile," Caplan explained.
In addition to protecting from external threats, Trend is also looking to protect users from their own behaviour. Caplan said that the 2013 Titanium release bundles tools such as password management utilities to help protect against bad password practices.
"What we have found is only 11 percent of consumers proactively purchase password management software, and over half have reported having to change their password because an account has been hacked," she said.
"There is a real disconnect between who is being affected and who is doing something to make sure it does not happen to them."
