Smart Surfing /Mac ships
Trend Micro has launched Smart Surfing for Mac, offering identity and personal data protection when users shop, bank and explore online. The software blocks IM and e-mail links that lead to dangerous websites, guarding against phishing scams aimed at grabbing confidential information. Parental controls are included, which can restrict access by content, limit IM and chat access or block sites parents deem off-limits.
The software also protects a Mac from viruses, worms, Trojan horse programs and malware. It includes free automatic updates to keep the protection current at all times.
Smart Surfing requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher and works with G4 and newer processors. It is available now for $70.
