TrustPort is headquartered in Brno, Czech Republic, with sales offices located all around the world. They offer a variety of computer security products in 12 different languages. Though TrustPort was officially established in 2008, it was preceded by the AEC (Association for Electronics and Computers), a company that sold software and services related to data security before beginning to develop its own security software. TrustPort's products include home internet security, mobile security, flash drive security, electronic signing and encryption products, and office and business security products.
- Great features
- Spam filter
- Available on Android
TrustPort's antivirus products for home and small office check for viruses in every program started and every file opened. Complete with anti-phishing, antivirus, anti-spam, and firewall features, your PC will be well-protected from known Trojans, worms, and other malware with this product. The scanner filters spam from your inbox and blocks unwanted web content, with settings the user can control. Additionally, TrustPort's Android smartphone app, which uses a scanner based on the PC protection product, is extremely inexpensive. The company's data encryption and e-signing products make it unique.
- Social media protection
- Virtual footprint
- Parent lock feature
TrustPort's home antivirus products offer most of the features that are needed for a good program. However, there are a few minor gaps that prospective customers should be aware of. While the product does protect email accounts and other user names and passwords, the social media protection isn't comprehensive: it won't scan your social media account activity, notify about privacy concerns, or indicate dangerous links on your social media sites. TrustPort does a good job about tracking all the files and sites that connect with your PC, but it doesn't do anything to minimize the virtual footprint you leave on the web-a "do not track" feature-which would prevent data-collecting companies to track online activity. Finally, the parental lock feature that TrustPort offers is effective in blocking unwanted web content, but does not include summaries that track attempts to access forbidden sites.
While AV-Comparatives is just one organization that has tested TrustPort's performance speed, the results have shown that there are other products that run more quickly. Another thing to note is that TrustPort's products are not compatible with Apple devices.
The Bottom Line
TrustPort has all of the antivirus features most users need to effectively protect their PC from malware, as well as additional protection, like anti-spam and parental controls. If speed is your priority, though, be sure to check out the AV-Comparatives results yourself.
