Summary Bullets


Protect Data from Viruses

Prevent a security breach from crippling your business. Virus protection software detects and removes viruses, worms, Trojans, and more so you can sleep without fear of unwelcome system visitors.

Stay Ahead of Threats

Stand Guard Anti-Virus boasts one of the most comprehensive sets of virus signatures available on any platform and keeps itself up to date by automatically downloading the latest virus definitions and enhancements.

Ward Off Unknown Threats

Using only virus signatures, no scanning engine is able to detect new, previously unknown threats, but Stand Guard Anti-Virus uses heuristic analysis to detect new viruses before they become widespread so you’re never caught off guard.

Key Features

Native file system scanning

Native file scanning is secure and reliable

Most anti-virus software solutions are designed specifically for Windows, but there are significant security risks to using those solutions on other platforms. In order to find viruses where they hide, it’s important to use a native tool to prevent scan failure and security issues. Stand Guard Anti-Virus is specifically designed to scan IBM i objects, guest partitions running AIX or Linux, and Lotus Domino mail and databases.

Heuristic analysis

Identify new malware with heuristic analysis

While the comprehensive virus signature scanning engine looks for known viruses, Stand Guard Anti-Virus uses a technique called heuristic analysis to identify previously unidentified viruses by features that often distinguish them, such as unprompted modification of files or replication. Heuristic analysis helps the engine detect new viruses before they become widespread.

Object integrity scanning

Avoid the damage caused by tampered IBM i objects

Tampered IBM i objects can seriously harm your system or bypass your security entirely. To guard against this, IBM and other vendors digitally sign their objects, but these objects are still at risk of modification. When you use Stand Guard Anti-Virus for IBM i, you can scan and detect changed objects, patched programs, and other unauthorized modifications on IBM i.

Automatic updating and scanning

Automatic DAT updates protect your system from viruses

Simplify your virus protection through automatic DAT updates, product enhancements, and system scans. Stand Guard Anti-Virus automatically updates virus definitions to provide the latest protection against current virus threats.

“Maybe Alon didn’t have anything occur in the last ten years, but they had it on that particular day—which was the third day after I started. Now, whether it’s five years or ten years from now, by deploying Powertech we now have security in place for our IBM i. Stand Guard Anti-Virus is easy to deploy and the automation feature is not only beneficial but paramount.”

Stand Guard Anti-Virus for IBM i

Scan the integrated file system (IFS) for hidden viruses

Designed specifically for the file systems used by IBM i, Stand Guard Anti-Virus provides native file system scanning allowing you to scan the operating system’s structures not found on other platforms, such as recursive links, in order to uncover viruses and malicious code wherever they may be found. In addition to understanding recursive links, Stand Guard Anti-Virus for IBM i allows you to scan IBM i objects for modified digital signatures (a sign of tampering).

Stand Guard Anti-Virus for AIX, Linux, and Domino

Scan guest partitions, mail, and databases for malware

Stand Guard Anti-Virus protects AIX, Linux, and Domino

Stand Guard Anti-Virus isn’t just a solution for the IBM i. You can also scan guest partitions running AIX or Linux, as well as Lotus Domino mail and databases.

Email remains one of many ways in which viruses and malicious code can find their way into your company. With the Domino add-on, Stand Guard Anti-Virus gives your staff the ability to dynamically:

  • Scan mail and databases
  • Identify and remove malicious code embedded within document attachments and OLE objects
  • Quarantine infected files
  • Alert administrators to problems
