Powertech Antivirus for Linux

A commercial-grade anti-malware solution built for the Linux platform

Linux Isn't Immune to Malware

The recent rise in malware attacks proves that every operating system, including Linux, needs protection from malicious programs. In fact, studies have shown that Linux malware now accounts for more than 35% of all malware, tripling in number over the past three years.

Most organizations are running some version of Linux, and for many, it is at the core of their operations. Linux is fundamental to organizations with assets running in AWS, Azure, and other cloud vendors as well. As a result, Linux has proven to be a lucrative target for malicious attackers who are finding opportunities to exploit Linux directly. Linux systems can also serve as hosts to Windows viruses. It's time for the Linux community to take these threats seriously.

Protect Your Data with Native Linux Virus Protection

Protect Data from Viruses with Server-Level Malware Scanning

Linux anti-malware software won't replace your PC software, but it a necessary layer of protection. Powertech Antivirus for Linux provides server-level virus protection that detects and removes native Linux viruses, infected files, and Windows malware lurking on your Linux servers that may be transmitted to other vulnerable systems. PC scanning alone cannot provide the same level of protection.

Stay Ahead of Threats with Leading Scanning Technology

Powertech Antivirus offers one of the most comprehensive and up-to-date sets of virus signatures available on any platform. Powertech Antivirus is a sophisticated Linux virus scanner with the ability to automatically download the lastest virus definitions and detect new, previously unknown threats before they become widespread.

Scan Your Systems Securely and Efficiently with a Native Virus Scanner

Security experts recommend organizations use malware protection software that runs natively on their servers’ operating systems. Powertech Antivirus is built for the Linux platform to avoid security and performance problems caused by Windows-based scanning programs.

Protection Without Sacrificing Performance

Enterprise antivirus software provides a critical layer of protection, but many system administrators have concerns over system performance issues that may arise from installing antivirus software across their Linux environment. Advanced malware protection with Powertech Antivirus is lightweight and has minimal impact on system performance. Flexible scanning options allow users to determine whether they want to protect their systems in real-time or schedule on-demand scans during opportune maintenance windows. However, those that choose real-time protection experience little performance impact. In fact, most hardly notice the software is running – until it detects a virus of course.

Protect Your Systems from Ransomware, Malware, and Viruses

Ransomware, malware, and viruses can cut off access to mission-critical data, causing hours of downtime and bringing productivity to a standstill. With the average cost of a data breach reaching nearly $4 million dollars in 2017, critical systems need commercial-grade protection. Powertech Antivirus is designed to protect your Linux servers from these malicious programs. Get started with your free trial today.
