Trend Micro Offers Free Trial Web Security Services for the PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable) System and Expands to Paid Security Services for the PLAYSTATION(R)3 (PS3(R)) System

Trend Micro extends protection beyond the PC; the PSP system can now be protected from malicious Web threats through Trend Micro's URL filtering and Web reputation technologies, while the PS3 system expands to a new paid security service.

TOKYO, April 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Trend Micro is offering free trial Web security services for the PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable) handheld entertainment system and paid Web security services for the PLAYSTATION(R)3 (PS3(R)) computer entertainment system from Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI).

Trend Micro Kids Safety for PSP(R) (PlayStation Portable) uses Trend Micro's URL filtering technology to prevent children from accessing Web sites that feature inappropriate content. Blocked categories include: Adult/Sex, Cults/The Occult, Gambling, Crime, Illegal Drugs, Alcohol/Tobacco, Sex Education, Weapons/Military, and Violence/Discrimination.

Trend Micro Web Security for PSP(R) (PlayStation Portable) uses Trend Micro's Web reputation technology to block PSP users from accidentally visiting a Web site that may contain malicious content designed to steal personal information and confidential data such as bank account information, and credit card numbers. Web reputation is one of the main components of the Trend Micro(TM) Smart Protection Network, a cloud-client security infrastructure that checks the security of more than five billion URL, email and file queries daily. With Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, PSP users receive instant, real-time protection.

Though most families remember to install security on their home PCs and laptops, handheld entertainment systems should also be a priority for security, as Web browsing on these devices becomes a more popular feature for many consumers. Not only should children be protected from accessing inappropriate Web sites through these handheld systems, all users of Web-enabled portable devices should be protected from accidentally visiting a Web site that contains infectious malware designed to steal personal information.

By using both services together, Trend Micro provides multiple layers of protection against malicious Web sites and Internet fraud.

Trend Micro Kids Safety and Trend Micro Web Security will be available on the PSP system as of the system software update v.5.50, which is releasing on April 21.
