Malware Defense for IBM i
The recent rise in malware and ransomware attacks has thrown a spotlight on the need to protect servers—including Power Systems servers running IBM i—from malicious programs. Powertech Antivirus for IBM i is a scanning solution built for IBM i to provide the security, stability and reliability modern organizations need.
IBM i includes built-in functionality to support native anti-virus scanning, but the platform doesn’t contain a scan engine. As the only commercial anti-virus scan engine native to IBM i, Powertech Antivirus fills that gap. By integrating seamlessly with the IBM i operating system Powertech Antivirus eliminates many of the problems that can be introduced by scan engines that don’t run natively on IBM i.
No OS can afford to be unprotected. IBM i is typically used for critical data and applications. This means the threat of viruses, malware, and ransomware pose a significant risk to your organization. Powertech Antivirus is designed is designed to provide the level of protection your Power Systems servers need.

I’m very happy with the simplicity and the effectiveness of Powertech Antivirus. Fortra 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.
