Bytware Releases Enhanced StandGuard Anti-Virus for V5R2
RENO, Nevada—Bytware, Inc., developer of the award-winning StandGuard Anti-Virus solution for OS/400 and i5/OS, announced today that a new version of the application has been released for OS/400 V5R2. This V5R2-only version brings the advanced features previously available only in the i5/OS V5R3 version to users of the earlier OS release. Enhancements include: improved management of product and virus definition updates; an enhanced graphical user interface; the ability to work in mixed V5R2/V5R3 environments; menus in English, French, and Japanese; and improved configuration options.
The highlight of the new enhancements is the addition of Object Integrity Scanning (OIS), previously available only in the V5R3 release. OIS gives StandGuard Anti-Virus the ability to alert iSeries managers to changes made to IBM’s digital signatures by patched programs. Many applications modify the operating system in order to achieve functionality not available on a given release of the OS. Regardless of whether a “patched” program does something good or something bad, such programs can create potential problems for the integrity of the operating system.
In addition to being key to a healthy iSeries, awareness of modifications to the system is an important aspect of compliance with new regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley.
