AIX Malware and Virus Protection Software

Windows-based antivirus software is not designed for AIX, causing additional security and performance issues. The best way to avoid these scanning and stability problems is from native malware protection offered by Powertech Antivirus for AIX.

Leverage Enterprise-Level Malware Protection

Powertech Antivirus Key Features

Native Protection for AIX Servers

If your antivirus 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 antivirus 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 antivirus.

Behavior Based Detection

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 for AIX 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.

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 Native AIX Antivirus Software

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 antivirus 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. Natively built antivirus for AIX avoids these problems.
