The security experts says the apps enable users to protect their digital lives on all Windows 8 compatible devices at home or on the go.

Trend Micro's SafeGuard app, is a tablet-optimised web browser with built-in security technology for use with Windows 8.

Users can experience Safe Search Results ratings on major search engines like Bing, Google, and Yahoo, as well as social networking security on leading sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google+.

Trend Micro’s Go Everywhere app is a solution that will help protect Windows 8 tablet PCs from loss or theft, locating tablets with just one click.

The final app, DirectPass will feature a new free app in the Windows Store, as well as a compatible version of DirectPass for Windows 8 desktops.

Designed for synced password protection and management across both environments, DirectPass helps make saving passwords online easy by encrypting saved passwords and helping provide an extra layer of security for banking and financial transactions.
