Anti-virus & Anti-Ransomware solutions are commonplace in desktop, network, and Internet/cloud environments. But what about IBM i servers?

While admins almost always deploy Anti-Virus & Anti-Ransomware software on non-IBM i systems, many organizations still don’t deploy Anti-Virus & Anti-Ransomware solutions on their IBM i servers. This is in spite of the fact that IBM i IFS files contain critical business assets that are attractive targets for cybercriminals.

Join SEA on June 14th to learn more about how virus & ransomware attacks affect IBM i servers and how to enhance IBM i cybersecurity & protect IFS assets against AV/AR threats.

Here’s what you’ll learn about managing IBM i virus & ransomware threats:

  •         Where IBM i systems and applications are most exposed to virus & ransomware attacks and their effects
  •         Regulatory compliance requirements for Anti-Virus and Anti-Ransomware protection that mandate Anti-Virus & Anti-Ransomware protection
