Powertech Antivirus offers server-level virus and malware protection.

MINNEAPOLIS (June 8, 2020)—HelpSystems announced today that its native virus protection software Powertech Antivirus has expanded to include coverage for IBM LinuxONE and Linux on IBM Z. This new addition means customers now have the ability to protect their Linux on Z infrastructure from viruses, worms, Trojans, and other complex malware with the only commercially available antivirus solution native to IBM systems.

In addition to LinuxONE and Linux on IBM Z, Powertech Antivirus offers server-level virus and malware protection for organizations running Linux on Power, AIX, and IBM i.

“Using a native tool that prevents scan failure and security issues helps ensure each platform is uniquely protected in a complex threat environment,” said Wenngatz. “Powertech Antivirus supports the specific requirements of each platform, and makes compliance and audit reporting easy by automatically logging all scanning activity, infections found, and malware removal.”
