Trend Micro, a provider of network antivirus and internet content security software, has announced a new total web security service for Playstation3, released by Sony Computer Entertainment.
This service is the first globally supported web security service for a home game system. By using this service, a wide range of PS3 users can feel safe to browse the internet. It blocks malicious and harmful websites. When a website is accessed from PS3, Trend Micro in-the-cloud databases are looked up. The URL filtering database classifies websites into categories, and the web reputation database is highly immediate in evaluating web pages, domains and IP addresses. By using both capabilities together, malicious web pages and websites that were previously difficult to handle only with URL filtering can also be blocked.
