Updated July 21st, 2015: We are mid-way through summer and that means that we are getting closer to all of the 2016 antivirus and internet security releases from the major computer protection companies. And while you’ll see some of the releases already occurring later in July, like Bitdefender for example, most of them happen in September. That rings true for Trend Micro and some of their major competitors like Norton, McAfee and Webroot. Watch for all Trend Micro 2016 versions to be in mid-September (last year it was on September 16th).
