Native Protection for IBM Power Servers® (IBM i, AIX, Linux, and Domino)
Powertech Antivirus for IBM i offers the power and protection of the industry-leading McAfee scan engine while supporting the specific features of your IBM i, such as recursive links, file structures, and built-in scanning.
Powertech Antivirus protects your IBM i data from viruses, worms, and malware threats. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your scan engine is backed by battle-tested technology, advanced heuristic analysis, and generic detection and cleaning.
Award-Winning Scanning Technology
McAfee’s industry-leading scan engine uses a proprietary generic detection method that ranked first in University of Hamburg Virus Test Center trials.
With Powertech Antivirus powered by McAfee, you can take control of and eliminate potential threats like:
- Macro and script viruses
- Encrypted and polymorphic viruses
- Unknown viruses and suspicious files
- Zero-day threats
- Trojans, worms, and malware
- Viruses within compressed, packed, and OLE files
By keeping virus definitions up-to-date automatically, Powertech Antivirus protects you from the 100+ new virus threats that occur each week. Powertech Antivirus also includes enhanced generic unpacking and native unpacking for newer versions of ASPack, AutoIt, and MSI, allowing it to dig deep into a wide range of files where viruses could hide.
The Great Unknown
Even when viruses are too new to be defined, Powertech Antivirus keeps you one step ahead. The McAfee scan engine uses advanced heuristic analysis to help you catch unknown viruses before they cause damage.
Heuristic analysis is a behavior-based scan of a file’s code. If the code behaves similar to a virus, McAfee takes note. When the level of virus-like code reaches a set threshold, the scanner reports a possible infection.
With Powertech Antivirus on your side, you’ll detect and clean new viruses and variants before the experts even identify them.
Object Integrity Scanning
Tampered objects can seriously harm the OS or bypass all security entirely. Unique to IBM i and not found in any other product today, Powertech Antivirus uses object integrity scanning to detect changed objects and patched programs.
Real-Time vs. On-Demand Protection
With Powertech Antivirus, you can choose to scan files dynamically as they are opened or schedule your scans outside of normal business hours to save processing power.
Powertech Antivirus works with IBM i’s built-in job scheduler or any commercial job scheduling solution—you decide which directories to scan and when to scan them.
AIX, Linux, and Domino Scanning
Don’t waste time and money installing multiple, stand-alone antivirus applications on each partition. A single installation of Powertech Antivirus ensures that all of your IBM i, Linux, and AIX partitions are free of viruses, worms, and malware.
Powertech Antivirus also has an add-on feature to expand your scanning to Lotus Domino mail and databases with quarantine protection and real-time alerts.
You've Got Mail
Powertech Antivirus scans inbound and outbound email from the IBM i Mail Server Framework before it reaches your PC clients, other servers in your network, or customers.
Keep yourself and your staff informed of potential threats at all times. Powertech Antivirus can log onto an IBM i message queue, report into job logs, or integrate with an automated monitoring solution to set up instant notification.
Powertech Antivirus provides reports on anything an auditor would ask for including directories scanned, infections found, and cleaning/quarantining activity
All virus scanning activity is recorded to the system audit journal for a clear audit trail. Powertech Antivirus also records all changes made to the product, who made them, and when in the AVJRN journal.
