Virus Protection

Native enterprise virus protection solutions for IBM systems (Linux, AIX, and IBM i)

Server-Level Enterprise Virus Protection


Organizations today typically have diverse IT environments that run a combination of Windows, Linux, AIX, or IBM i. But these diverse operating systems are vulnerable, and PC-based scanning and firewalls are not enough to detect viruses and malware that may hide within servers and files.

The goal of native enterprise virus protection software is to ensure that each platform is protected against viruses, worms, Trojans, and other complex malware. Prevent threats from spreading throughout your infrastructure and protect files with virus protection software that runs natively on your IBM i, AIX, and Linux servers.

What Should a Virus Protection Solution Do?

Viruses, worms, ransomware, and other complex malware are malicious code that can target critical servers within organizations. But it can be difficult to discover where they are lurking with antivirus software designed just for Windows environments. Enterprise virus protection offers powerful, native software to help your business:

Detect and Neutralize Threats

Virus protection should detect and neutralize threats to your Linux, AIX, and IBM i servers. It should protect your critical infrastructure by offering native virus scanning to support specific features within your environment.

Safeguard Critical Assets

Enterprise virus protection should safeguard your most critical assets by providing unlimited virus scanning and staying up-to-date on the latest virus definitions and enhancements.

Ease the Burden of Compliance

Make compliance and audit reporting easier by logging all scanning activity, infections found, and malware removal—lifting the load off your IT or security teams—and enabling your business to operate more smoothly and efficiently.

Protect Your System from Viruses and Malware

No server or platform today is completely safe. Today’s threat landscape requires a multilayered approach that includes native virus scanning to protect against viruses and malware. Enterprise virus protection should leverage the power of a commercial grade scan engine, while supporting the specific features of your operating system.

Protect Business-Critical Data

Without antivirus software, data can be stolen or destroyed.

Avoid Costly Downtime

Viruses and malware can damage your bottom line as well as your systems.

Meet Compliance Requirements

PCI DSS, HIPAA, and other security mandates require virus protection.
