StandGuard AntiVirus - Overview

Modern virus threats represent a major risk to your corporate data and security. Today’s multi-platform networks and connectivity mean that your System i, System p, and Linux servers can host viruses and spread them to other systems in your network. StandGuard Anti-Virus provides native protection for these platforms.

Designed for business, StandGuard Anti-Virus is built from the ground up for IBM's System i and System p servers, as well as for Linux on x86 and Domino. Powered by McAfee, StandGuard Anti-Virus provides the specialized protection and management that you need to effectively protect the key components of your network.

At the heart of StandGuard Anti-Virus is McAfee's industry leading scanning engine, ranked first in University of Hamburg Virus Test Center trials. Behind the consistent success of McAfee scans is AVERT Labs, a team of researchers spread across the globe who monitor malicious activity 365x24x7.
