Posted by Mark Raby

Tokyo (Japan) - Trend Micro's security software spans over a huge repertoire of operating systems and Internet browsers, and now it has become the first to bring similar Web safety tools to the PS3.

Trend Micro Web Security for PS3 launches today, and according to Trend Micro it is the first product of its kind for a gaming console.

Features of the software include the ability to set up password-secured content filters for parents to prevent their children from accessing certain sites, and a blocking mechanism that automatically prohibits maliciously crafted websites from loading.

Trend Micro Web Security for PS3 will be free until April 2008.  After that, it will charge a nominal fee that has not yet been determined.
