Powertech Antivirus for AIX
Commercial-grade AIX malware defense
Anti-Malware Software for AIX
Organizations all over the world have fallen victim to malware, viruses, and ransomware attacks. In this threat landscape, server-level malware protection is critical for all operating systems, including AIX. Powertech AntiVirus is designed to provide the reliable AIX malware protection today’s businesses require.
AIX is one of the most powerful operating systems around, but it’s not immune to malicious programs. A virus or malware infection that renders critical data or applications inaccessible can result in downtime with a total cost reaching six figures or more. No one budgets for an attack like this—and some organizations never recover.
Powertech Antivirus protects your mission-critical AIX systems by identifying, quarantining, and removing malicious programs before any harm is done. Because Powertech Antivirus integrates with the AIX platform, you have peace of mind knowing it’s stable, reliable, and secure.

AIX Malware and Virus Protection
In today’s threat landscape, malicious programs like viruses and ransomware are targeting servers like AIX and crippling businesses. But organizations still rely on malware protection that runs on an end user’s work station.
This approach creates serious security concerns for your AIX servers. Confidential data is visible on the network because files are transferred between your AIX server and the work station without encryption. Windows-based anti-virus software isn’t designed for AIX, so scans often fail. Scanning AIX servers with Windows software is slow and dramatically increases the network load.
The best way to avoid these security and stability problems is native malware protection, like Powertech Antivirus. Powertech Antivirus is enterprise-level malware protection that’s built to integrate seamlessly with your AIX servers. It boasts one of the most comprehensive sets of virus signatures available, and keeps itself up to date by automatically downloading the latest virus definitions. A technique called heuristic analysis detects previously unidentified viruses by features that often distinguish them, such as unprompted modification of files or replication. Powertech Antivirus has the power to discover viruses and malicious code wherever they may be found on AIX. Start protecting your organization today with a free trial.
Powertech Antivirus Key Features
Native Protection for AIX Servers
If your anti-virus software doesn’t know to look for malicious programs, it won’t find them. A native scanning solution is one that’s designed for your operating system. Because Powertech Antivirus is built for AIX, it avoids scan failures and the security problems caused by non-native solutions.
Protection Without Performance Problems
Using anti-virus software that isn’t built for AIX will slow your system performance and increase network load. These problems can be avoided by using native AIX virus protection.
Advanced Heuristic Analysis
Replication, unprompted modification of files, and other characteristics typically differentiate malware from other files. Through a strategy known as heuristic analysis, Powertech Antivirus for AIX leverages these characteristics to identify previously unknown malicious programs.
Dynamic and Scheduled Scan
Powertech Antivirus works with job scheduling solutions, so you can choose whether files are scanned as they are opened or schedule file scanning at a predetermined time.
Powertech Antivirus is designed to run natively on the AIX, Linux, and IBM i operating systems, so you can ensure all your mission-critical servers are protected from ransomware, malware, and viruses.
Quick and Easy Deployment
Powertech Antivirus for AIX is simple to install and deploy across your environment. It’s also very easy to use, so the time investment from your team is minimal.
Full Audit Trail
Protecting AIX is only half the battle. You also have to prove to auditors that your systems are protected. Powertech Antivirus makes it easy to report on which directories were scanned, how many infections were discovered, and when those malicious programs were quarantined and removed.
Advantages of Antivirus Software Built for AIX
Virus Protection Built for AIX Avoids Security Concern
To scan AIX for malicious programs using software built for PCs, you need a file share and a work station logged on to the server with privileged access. The data transferred between the work station and the server is unencrypted. This leaves it vulnerable to malicious actors.
Improve AIX System Performance
Using malware scanning that’s not built for your operating system can be slow. Transferring data between AIX and the PC increases the network load. These factors make it difficult to scan your system for viruses and malware on a regular basis, which increases the chances of malware spreading throughout your environment.
Ensure the Reliability and Stability of Malware Scans
PC anti-virus software isn’t able to scan every part of the AIX OS. When the non-native program runs across a file structure it doesn’t recognize, the scan can fail and trigger an alert. Responding to these alerts is a time-consuming, manual process. Virus protection software built for AIX avoids these problems.
