Filipino Internet users depend on the cloud even if 7 out of 10 doubts its security

A new Trend Micro online poll revealed that seven in 10 Filipino internet users are worried about storing personal information on the cloud, with 65% saying they do not trust the cloud at all. Despite this, 65% of the respondents still use it to store photos and 80% of the respondents still store personal and work-related documents in the cloud.

With this in mind, Trend Micro is introducing Trend Micro Security 10 – a security and privacy solution fully compatible with Microsoft Windows 10. The new version’s security features are simple to use, yet provide state-of-the-art protection for consumers’ data, delivered with optimal performance. This allows users to securely connect and engage safely online from today’s evolving threat environment.

Trend Micro Security 10 provides protection against threats and privacy concerns regardless of the device or operating system. The software will feature protection from exposing private information or becoming susceptible to data-theft and other malicious online threats on both personal and business devices. These rank amongst the top three greatest fears respondents have in the event of an online security breach: stolen personal and financial data (79%), viruses and malware infections (70%), and identity theft (57%).

“It’s a fact of life that all laptops, smart phones, PC’s and tablets are susceptible to data theft, and stealing information from one’s digital life is easier than most people think,” said Akihiko Omikawa, Executive Vice President at Trend Micro. “People are accessing the Internet anytime and anywhere. It’s hard to know if personal or business information is being shared without permission. We want to ensure our customers are protected in this fast-changing world, providing them with advanced protection without disruption.”

With the growing number of malicious threats, breaches, and hacks, Trend Micro Security 10 helps people be safe online with its superior phishing detection and industry-leading tools. These tools block viruses, spyware, worms and Trojans, preventing their devices from becoming infected. Trend Micro is adding new features to its already award-winning protection to further protect customers from the threats of today: from additional social media protection, SSL verification, ransomware and online banking protections. With this solution, users’ personal information is far less at risk of being compromised by cybercriminals while maintaining privacy and protection of online activity.

The Microsoft Windows 10 operating system is compatible with Trend Micro Security 10 range of products. Trend Micro customers can upgrade for free to this latest version. The previous version, Trend Micro Security 2015, is also Windows 10 compatible, if updated before the user upgrades to Windows 10.

“According to our Trend Micro online poll, we know that consumers in the Philippines are spending more time in social media (98%), web-browsing (94%) and entertainment (79%) online. Despite this increased reliance on the internet, many are ambivalent towards online security,” said Andrew Tan, Consumer Marketing Manager, Southeast Asia at Trend Micro. “At Trend Micro, we are committed to securing individuals’ and businesses’ ability to do things online safely, whether it’s on Windows, Android, Mac or iOS.”
