Trend Micro® Home Network Defender Virus Check
Learn about Trend Micro Home Network Defender and its virus checking capabilities.
Changes in technology has seen a boom in the number of home networks being set-up where multiple computers and other communicating devices i.e. phones, faxes, modems, and Playstations® are linked together to form a mini home LAN. This has made it possible to not only use the Internet for traditional e-mail communication, but also to telecommute, do online banking, e-commerce, and video chats among other online activities, just as one would from an office or a cyber café network. However, with this advancement comes the headache of protecting user privacy as well as data and application programs against possible threats and unauthorized intrusions. Trend Micro Home Network Defender is a software that is specially tailored to safeguard home networks against Internet security threats, cyber criminals and allow for safe browsing.

Benefits of Trend Micro Home Network Defender
Supervision of online activities if truth be told is not an easy task. The need to effectively manage the websites that one can visit and the timings for accessing web have been provided for in the application via the Parental Control feature. This enables parents and guardians to successfully manage the use of their home networks even in their absence. In addition, the application not only protects home networks against viruses, but also against malicious security threats that are disguised as useful applications and may not be detectable by the antivirus installed i.e. spyware, Trojans, and worms.
How does the application help in checking virus infections?
The application provides an added feature of antispyware, providing the user with options of either on-demand, real-time, or scheduled system scans to check the computer for existing viruses, spyware, Trojans, worms, and other emerging new threats. To help guard the system from viruses that mutate to avoid detection, the Behavior Monitoring feature continually monitors for changes that might occur in the computer operations without your knowledge. The Parental Control feature has been designed to assist parents as well as guardians to manage web content that the users can view using the home network. It includes features that allow the setting of time for accessing web, website categories that can be viewed, as well as web addresses that can be accessed. Malicious websites, such as phishing websites that are out to trick users to disclose personal information like credit card details, bank account numbers, and social security numbers, are automatically blocked before they can open.
Upgrading the application
Software updates are accessed and installed automatically by the application. This enables the application to update its database definition files with new information about malicious websites, mutating viruses, and spyware. Failure to update the application leaves it obsolete and it can no longer provide the needed security against possible new threats.
