Ask Vic: How does Trend Micro run with MalwareBytes?


This weeks “Ask Vic” question is courtesy of Glenn.

“I am a subscriber of Trend Micro Titanium 2012. The product is excellent, IMHO. Even though I am aware that Trend Micro protects against Malware, it has been suggested that I subscribe to MalwareBytes as well for additional protection. Is Trend Micro capable of running smoothly in conjunction with MalwareBytes?  —  Or, do you think MalwareBytes is totally unnecessary?  Be honest Vic!”

Glad you like Titanium 2012.  I do too.

As to whether Malwarebytes is “totally” unnecessary, let’s look at it this way.  Titanium 2012 provides comprehensive protection, and you like it, so I’d suggest you make that your main go-to security solution. If for some reason you believe that Titanium did not detect a certain malware strain that made it onto your system, then trying an alternative security solution may make sense.  I cannot vouch for one alternative solution over another because I have not done comprehensive testing of products competitive with Titanium 2012.

However, I can point you in the direction of a discussion thread on Trend Community that discusses Titanium compatibility with other AV applications.  I think you will find this discussion useful.
