Dell To Preload Trend Micro Software On PCs

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 6:12 am

Starting next week Dell will load free 90-day trial versions of PC-cillin on PCs shipped to North American consumers.

In February, the computer maker will designate Trend Micro’s PC-cillin software as “Dell Recommended” on its Web site catalog, said Trend Micro’s president of North American operations, Lane Bess. Dell currently recommends a rival product from McAfee Inc. It puts Symantec Corp.’s second.

The arrangement does not automatically funnel sales to Trend Micro, but could help the Japanese software company’s efforts to boost its North American market share, which stands at 7 percent — far behind Symantec and McAfee.

Dell has been selling PC-cillin with its PCs since July.
