Trend Micro Rolls Out Updated Mobile Security Software

Dallas-based cybersecurity developer Trend Micro has updated its mobile security product aimed at both Android and iOS devices, the company said this morning. Trend Micro said its new Trend Micro Mobile Security for Android and iOS protects those devices against fake banking, shopping and financial apps, while boosting device performance and battery life. In particular, the company said the software is aimed at protecting Android users from cybercriminals who have been targeting the platform with malicious apps. On the iOS side--where Apple's app store processes more or less eliminate those issues--Trend Micro says its software helps protect against online phishing scams, privacy threats, and personal data theft via its secure browser.
