Offline protection


Does Trend Micro Maximum Security offer strong offline protection when not online?

Due to limited internet access and policies implemented in our office staff are able to access emails and domains that have been given permission for work. Due to this TM does not get updated during office time and I generally let the updates happen after work. During office hours, we open email attachments and other documents on USB with the risk of getting our pc's infected.

In such a scenario where TM cannot access the cloud to determine new malwares, will I still be protected offline with new day zero threats or recognized malware?

Thanks in advance

Hi Nabeel Mansoor,


Welcome to Trend Micro Home Users Community!


Trend Micro Security is equipped with special protection features to address specific need. Even without internet Trend Micro will continue to protect your device but it will be not able to update.


Also, it has a feature called Folder shield where it protects your selected files/folders as well as a USB Scanner feature for you external drive.


We still recommend connecting to the Internet, to get the latest updates for your maximum protection.


Hope this helps!
