Three things define Trend Micro. The first one is that Trend Micro can search, detect and destroy common viruses. Once you install the program on your device, the program runs silently and scans your system and the web repeatedly to detect any threats that you may face as you use your device.
Second, Trend Micro has a built-in firewall. The firewall works to protect you against malware-infested websites. Third, this antivirus program protects you against other different types of cyber malware such as keyloggers and spyware.
Remember that as much as you use this antivirus program; you may find it necessary to complement it with other specific malware-protection programs such as anti-spyware and anti-keyloggers.
