    To me it doesn't even look free... they expect users to buy a limited product? Not only that... buy a subscription-based, limited product!? :gack: o_O

    Sure, good point, but I'm most of all thinking about the alternatives featuring the same thing - for free! (PCAV comes to mind - I wonder why!?) :D

    I installed it on Vista with no other security product so it was light on resource.

    We'll probably never know how business models work for these vendors - Panda obviously feel they can afford to offer a free version. Can that be said of Trend or do they just see an opprtunity to make more money?

    Good Morning! Good luck in attempting to negotiate a market competitive price with Trend Micro, I attempted to offer them pricing on their Security Suite Pro 2009, which in my opinion is overly priced, I can do without the extras included with the suite identity and system optimizer etc. and I don't need a license for 3 p.c.'s. In my opinion their pricing should be similar or identical too their basic security suite. And this observation isn't directed at Trend Micro but to all competitors, who could avail themselves of a larger mkt share if they we're more flexible in their attitude in wanting to negotiate a more moderate pricing. Merely an observation,viewed at ground level,not in the clouds. Sincerely...Securon

    I'm amazed Trend Micro is still alive as a company.

    Actually, in-the-cloud technology is nothing new for Trend Micro. It's been used in their Worry-Free Business Security line since June 2008. Reviews have been overwhelmingly favorable. For example,

    http://www.brighthub.com/computing/smb-security/reviews/35039.aspx

    Trend Micro has been doing very well, especially with their business products. Their Q2 2009 results, released a few days ago, reported a 2% increase in net income compared to Q2 2008:

    Hello,

    I just took trend-micro in the cloud beta for a stroll down malware domain list and it caught every single one that I tested from today and yesterday.

    I only tested flash exploits and exe's and only 30 or so so a very small sample.

    well I just ran it and it found TROJ_DRAGON.R which Prevx nor Eset had discovered. Intersting. Very interesting.

    Just an update. I earlier stated that trend micro blocked all the zero day links from malware domain list. I thought how were they able to do what most other AV's couldn't?

    I exited trend micro security and downloaded about 6-7 exe's from MDL today and then let trend scan computer. Trend micro only caught 1 of them. It must be using a white list to block the user from downloading them because once they are on your machine--trend micro is useless.

    Actually they use a in-cloud service (Trend Micro Smart Protection Network) which checks if the site you visit is safe.You can test your URL here on :
    http://www.securecloud.com/

    Did you try executing the files (in VM) with Trend Micro ? Trend Micro uses BB to detect many malware on-execution. I am guessing the on-execution detection will be much better.
