DirectPass follows Trend to using password managers

By

As the number of passwords we need to remember grows, so does the motivation to use a password manager, but such products tend to come from smaller developers or are bundled with security suites. Trend Micro's new DirectPass comes from a brand name and is offered as a standalone product.

Trend Micro DirectPass works on a variety of devices and provides a cloud-based approach to storing and managing passwords.

"We know that most security threats arise when passwords are forgotten or because users try to remember them by writing them down or worse, making them weak in order to easily commit them to memory," said Carol Carpenter, general manager of Trend Micro.

"With the introduction of DirectPass, Trend Micro's goal is to lower users' risks of running into malicious intent by heightening the security of their passwords in an easy way that also doesn't interfere with their day-to-day digital life," she added.

It also provides an automatic form filler, and a secure browser for visiting banking and financial web sites.

DirectPass is available for Android, iOS and Windows, but (curiously) not for Mac OS X, and stores an unlimited number of passwords. A one-year subscription costs $19.95, and DirectPass will be bundled with Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security and Maximum Security beginning in May.

A free trial version allowing the storage of up to five passwords is also available.
