Prevent viruses and malware from spreading throughout your system and protect files with antivirus software that runs natively on your IBM i, AIX, and Linux servers.
- Protect your servers from viruses and malware.
- Avoid the cost of downtime and remediation.
- Stay compliant with security mandates that require virus protection.
No System Is Immune to Viruses
Many of the security breaches making news every day start with viruses and malware. Victims often experience financial losses, reduced customer confidence, and even fines stemming from compliance violations. The consequences can be serious, but many still believe viruses are only a Windows problem.
That’s not true in today’s connected environments. Viruses can hide inside Java and Unix files and your operating system can execute them. On IBM i, your integrated file system (IFS) can act as a host for viruses and malware. In short, the IBM i, AIX, and Linux operating systems are all vulnerable to viruses—no server is completely safe. But PC-based virus scanning and firewalls aren’t enough—today’s virus threats call for a multilayered approach that includes native virus scanning.
