Trend and tracking

Good day,

I recently have had an issue with a client questioning the use of Trend Micro worry free business. Particularly in regards to this paragraph on Wikipedia.

"Trend Micro's Smart Protection Network deploys bots to verify websites visited by users of Trend Micro Internet Security. While users of the software are visiting a website, the Trend Micro bots break security measures and rules specified by the website administrator and display malware characteristics.[3] The antivirus software uses the trust websites have for users with administrative and other privileges to circumvent website security measures to allow Trend Micro's bots the opportunity to download privileged information or to inject files to the website. This can be a major privacy and security risk for Trend Micro Internet Security users who access Internet banking facilities."

Now I realize this is a wiki and anyone can change the information on this site. However I need some more credible information. As I have already purchased this product however wish to give the client reassurance.

if any one can provide any information if this is correct please let me know. Also if there is another protection that we should be using I would be most grateful.
