TrustPort Internet Security 2013 Editor's Review

Nowadays, there is hardly any computer user who does not have any antivirus or security suite installed in his or her PC. In fact, a majority of users are opting for internet security suites over regular antivirus apps for wider protection from a number of online and offline threats. The way attackers and malware are becoming more powerful, you have to invest in capable system security software no matter what you do. The question is which app you choose? There are some established names like Mcafee and Symantec but you may also pick from some lesser known contenders that offer security suites for PC users. TrustPort Internet Security is one such contender you may try.

Installation of TrustPort Internet Security is a smooth sailing event and you do not need much technical acumen for accomplishing this. It runs on PCs equipped with Windows XP and later versions. It allows you to make Windows PE-based antivirus disc so that you can boot into severely infested systems. On most malware affected system, the app manages to complete the installation as it is.

The app interface has got some tweaks in this version and does look somewhat appealing. There are 7 big buttons occupying the major part of app interface. While the revamped layout is easier on your eyes, more efforts should have been put into enhancing efficiently of the app in malware removal and other tasks. Five of these buttons are used for enabling or deactivating security components. The other two buttons are meant for updates and firewall protection level selection. For the detailed settings, you have to click link for advanced configuration.

When you install TrustPort Internet Security, better performance in detection and cleanup can be expected. On a clean system, the app offer excellent malware detection performance. Its score in independent virus lab testing is also good. Along with its signature-based malware recognition engine, TrustPort also deploys a behavior-based Application detection mechanism. It catches apps with suspicious behaviors and asks users for subsequent actions. While this feature does catch apps with risky behavior at times, it may also detect perfectly safe apps as rogue.

Nowadays, every internet security suites come fortified with firewall protection and TrustPort is not an exception. It offers 4 levels of protection from unwanted intrusion. These levels are- Deny All Connections, Use Firewall Rules, Enable Outgoing Connections and Permit All Connections. These settings are actually quite rudimentary and lag far behind settings offered by contenders from stables of Symantec and AVG. TrustPort's firewall is dated and can fall prey to latest malwares that operate in stealth mode. Even for attacks that target system vulnerabilities, this firewall is less than effective. Such attacks are blocked actually by its Web-based malware scanner rather than firewall itself. While the app resists process termination, the protection is not robust compared to other security apps that offer application self defense.

TrustPort Internet Security does come with spam protection feature but it is less than what most users will deem suitable for their needs. It checks incoming POP3 emails for spam and malware by default. The app offers integrations with top email clients including Thunderbird and Outlook Express. Spam filter does slow down mail download process to an extent but not annoyingly so. In spam filtering chore, TrustPort fares really bad with a score lagging behind almost all other contenders. What is worse, it can discard some of the valid email messages as spam. Business users should not consider using this app or their work. Internet security suites from both Norton and Mcafee put up a better show.

TrustPort also includes a phishing protection engine but it is hidden inside the app’s parental control system. It is not much functional though. The SmartScreen Filter of IE does a far better job in providing protection from phishing websites than this app.

The app comes with a separate Parental Lock component. It is quite basic and offers option to block web access to sites with 6 types of objectionable contents. Sadly, any smart teenager with tech savvy mind can bypass its defense and log into sites that his or her parents would not want. The worse aspect of this section is that it does not keep log of any websites visited by others and so you would not know if your kid actually enjoyed watching prohibited sites when you were at work.

TrustPort Internet Security offers two other features- Portunes and Skytale. The former component can encrypt your credit card numbers, passwords and addresses. However, this is nothing like feature rich password mangers that you get from Kaspersky and Trend micro security suites. It neither captures passwords nor does it fill web forms with data automatically. Skytale is meant for TrustPort users who can use its message encryption and decryption feature. These components have apps for both iOS and Android.

One good thing about TrustPort Internet Security is that it does not slow down your system much. In fact, you can turn off its barebones Parental Lock feature if speedy web browsing is your need. With TrustPort installed, most PC tasks do not become sluggish. The boot and shutdown time does not increase much either.

Positive Points:
 - Revamped interface, easy installation.
 - Windows PE bootable disc creation.
 - Does not cause system slowdown.
 - Good malware detection on clean system.

Negative Points:
 - Abysmal performance in phishing, spam control.
 - Barebones parental control and firewall protection.
 - Behavior based malware detection not accurate.

Conclusion:
If you are serious about system protection, it may not be a prudent decision to buy TrustPort Internet Security considering its average performance on most grounds. The app does not come for cheap either. It may come with a visually appealing interface in this release, but a fancy interface alone cuts no ice! The app scores abysmally in most of the sections, its high score in independent lab tests notwithstanding. In phishing protection it gets behind nearly all contenders and anti spam performance is below average. Same can be said about its parental control and firewall protection. The app does redeem itself in system performance impact segment but that alone cannot be reason enough to recommend it.

Rating: 2.5/5
