Native Protection for IBM Power Servers®
(IBM i, AIX, Linux, and Domino)
Stand Guard Anti-Virus™ (SGAV) offers the power and protection of the
industry-leading Intel Security scan engine while supporting the specific
features of your IBM i, such as recursive links, file structures, and
SGAV protects your IBM i data from viruses, worms, and malware threats. You’ll
have peace of mind knowing that your scan engine is backed by battle-tested
technology, advanced heuristic analysis, and generic detection and cleaning.
Prevent a cybersecurity breach from crippling your business. Virus protection software detects and removes viruses, worms, Trojans, and more so you can sleep without fear of unwelcome system visitors.
Stand Guard Anti-Virus boasts one of the most comprehensive sets of virus signatures available on any platform and keeps itself up to date by automatically downloading the latest virus definitions and enhancements.
Using only virus signatures, no scanning engine is able to detect new, previously unknown threats, but Stand Guard Anti-Virus uses heuristic analysis to detect new viruses before they become widespread so you’re never caught off guard.
Award-Winning Scanning Technology
Intel Security’s industry-leading scan engine uses a proprietary generic detection
method that ranked first in University of Hamburg Virus Test Center trials.
With SGAV powered by Intel Security, you can take control of and eliminate
potential threats like:
Most anti-virus software solutions are designed specifically for Windows, but there are significant security risks to using those solutions on other platforms. In order to find viruses where they hide, it’s important to use a native tool to prevent scan failure and security issues. Stand Guard Anti-Virus is specifically designed to scan IBM i objects, guest partitions running AIX or Linux, and Lotus Domino mail and databases.
While the comprehensive virus signature scanning engine looks for known viruses, Stand Guard Anti-Virus uses a technique called heuristic analysis to identify previously unidentified viruses by features that often distinguish them, such as unprompted modification of files or replication. Heuristic analysis helps the engine detect new viruses before they become widespread.
Tampered IBM i objects can seriously harm your system or bypass your security entirely. To guard against this, IBM and other vendors digitally sign their objects, but these objects are still at risk of modification. When you use Stand Guard Anti-Virus for IBM i, you can scan and detect changed objects, patched programs, and other unauthorized modifications on IBM i.
