Powertech Antivirus

Native Virus Protection Software for IBM Systems (Linux, AIX, IBM i) and Solaris

Protect your IT environment from viruses, worms, Trojans, and other complex malware with the only commercially available antivirus solution native to IBM Systems.

Most antivirus software solutions are designed just for Windows. But many organizations have diverse technology stacks that run some combination of Windows, Linux, AIX, or IBM i.

Using a native tool that prevents scan failure and security issues helps ensure each platform in your environment is uniquely protected against viruses, worms, and malware threats.

Powertech Antivirus is the only commercially available server-level antivirus solution that provides native scanning for IBM Systems, including IBM i, AIX and Linux on Power, Linux on Z, Intel X86/64, LinuxONE, and Solaris.

With one of the most comprehensive sets of virus signatures available on any platform, Powertech Antivirus keeps up-to-date by automatically downloading the latest malware definitions.
