Reno, NV (June 17, 2009)– Bytware announces that its StandGuard Anti-Virus® solution for the System i supports Lotus Domino® 8.5. The award-winning virus detection and cleaning solution, powered by McAfee, provides protection for IBM® Power Systems™ servers. StandGuard Anti-Virus offers native scanning to detect viruses and malicious code that can use Power Systems servers as a safe haven to infect other systems. Domino support is an optional add-on to the base StandGuard Anti-Virus solution for IBM i (i5/OS).
Lotus Domino 8.5, released by IBM in May, provides greater scalability and functionality, easy administration, and additional application capabilities, including:
- Identity management, such as Shared Logon and ID Vault
- Storage reduction required for file attachments through Domino Attachment and Object Service (DAOS)
- XPages and Eclipse-based Domino Designer features
- Calendar federation and flexibility
- Nokia S60 device platform support for IBM Lotus Notes Traveler
StandGuard Anti-Virus is completely compatible with the new Domino version. Support for Domino includes:
- Mail Scanning
Dynamically scans e-mail for viruses and other types of malicious code to protect Domino mail users from receiving infected and potentially harmful e-mail.
- Database Scanning
On-demand scanning of Domino databases allows users to detect viruses and malicious code embedded within document attachments and OLE objects.
Moves infected attachments to a quarantine database where an administrator can further investigate their origin and integrity by submitting a sample to McAfee’s AVERT Labs threat center.
- Real-time Alerts
Users can configure alerts to notify IT staff when specific events occur, such as when infected messages and documents are detected, or when automatic activities take place. These alerts allow administrators to continually monitor the health and status of the system.
- Automatic Updating
The database of virus definitions is automatically updated daily from McAfee’s servers or from specified computers on the local network.
Administrators can schedule automatic database scanning and updating to occur at user-configurable times when activity is low, such as nights and weekends.
Logs all activity to a central database—including details of infected objects detected during scans and when automatic activities occur—allowing administrators to maintain an audit trail for investigations and regulatory compliance.
- Easier Management
Remote Domino servers can be configured and managed from a central administration server, reducing the time and effort required to manage them. The log database offers a consolidated view of all events occurring across multiple servers. In addition to the traditional Notes interface, StandGuard Anti-Virus also provides a browser-based interface for viewing and managing all activities across multiple remote servers.
Bytware also offers Lotus Domino support in Japanese with its Tokyo-based partner Solpac.
