Nowadays, we constantly hear news about various cybercrimes. It is not that you are completely secure from these kinds of attacks. In fact, the general people are more vulnerable to hacking than big corporations and organizations.

Trend Micro has set a new benchmark in Cyber security solutions with its new Trend Micro internet security software. It halts unauthorized programs from making any changes due to its folder shield component.
