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

Powertech Antivirus 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 Powertech Antivirus uses heuristic analysis to detect new viruses before they become widespread so you’re never caught off guard.

Key Features

Native file system scanning for IBM i, AIX, and Linux

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. Powertech Antivirus is specifically designed to scan IBM i, AIX, and Linux operating systems for optimal performance and protection.

Leading scanning technology

Powertech Antivirus offers the power and protection of the industry leading McAfee scan engine while supporting the specific features of your operating system. Powertech Antivirus protects your servers running Linux, AIX, and IBM i from a comprehensive set of viruses, zero-day threats, worms, and malware. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your scan engine is backed by battle-tested technology.

Heuristic analysis

Identify new malware with heuristic analysis

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 malicious program, McAfee takes note. When the level of malware-like code reaches a set threshold, the scanner reports a possible infection.

Automatic updating and scanning

Simplify your virus protection through automatic DAT updates, product enhancements, and system scans. Powertech Antivirus automatically updates virus definitions to provide the latest protection against current virus threats.

On-demand or real-time scanning options

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 any commercial job scheduling solution, so you decide which directories to scan and when to scan them.

Compliance Reporting

Many regulations today require server-level malware protection and Powertech Antivirus makes compliance and audit reporting of scanning activity, infections found, and malware removal/quarantining easy across your environment. In addition to reporting, all malware scanning activity is recorded in the system audit journal and your syslog archive for a complete audit trail. Powertech Antivirus also records all changes made to the product, who made them, and when.  

I’m very happy with the simplicity and the effectiveness of Stand Guard Anti-Virus. HelpSystems has great people and the support is second to none. The product is very easy to install, very easy to comprehend, and very easy to maintain. There was no reason to consider any other options.
