AV-TEST Product Review and Certification Report – Jul-Aug/2012

Trend Micro: Titanium Maximum Security

Version Tested
2012 & 2013
Website Platform
Windows XP (SP3, 32 bit)

During July and August 2012 we continuously evaluated 23 home user security products using their default settings. We always used the most current publicly-available version of all products for the testing. They were allowed to update themselves at any time and query their in-the-cloud services. We focused on realistic test scenarios and challenged the products against real-world threats. Products had to demonstrate their capabilities using all components and protection layers.
