Bytware, Inc., a leading provider of monitoring and security solutions, has announced the expansion of the StandGuard Anti-Virus family of products to include a module for scanning of IBM Lotus Domino mail and databases residing on the System i.

An optional add-on for StandGuard Anti-Virus System i, StandGuard Anti-Virus for iSeries Domino (powered by McAfee) includes the following features:

Mail scanning. The application dynamically scanning email messages for viruses and other types of malicious code, protecting Domino mail users from receiving infected and potentially harmful e-mail messages.

Database scanning. The application provides on-demand scanning of Domino databases, detecting viruses and malicious code embedded within document attachments and OLE objects.

Quarantine. The application 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 threat center.

Real time alerts. Alerts can be configured for when various events occur, such as when infected messages and documents are detected, and when automatic activities occur. These alert administrators to be continually aware of the health and status of the system.

Automatic updating. The antivirus databases are automatically updated daily from McAfee's Internet servers or from specified computers on the local network.

Scheduling. The administrator can schedule automatic database scanning and automatic updating to occur at user configurable time periods, such as nights and weekends when activity is low.

Logging. All product activities are logged to a central database, including details of infected objects detected during scans and when automatic activities occur.

Ease of management. Remote Domino servers can be configured and managed from a central administration server, reducing the time and effort normally required to mange remote servers. The log database is presented as a consolidated view of all events occurring across multiple servers. In addition to the traditional Notes user interface, the product also provides a Web browser interface to view and manage all activities across multiple remote servers. The Domino module requires StandGuard Anti-Virus for System i, Bytware's native System i virus detection solution designed to scan IFS directories for viruses and perform advanced cleaning and notification procedures.

StandGuard Anti-Virus for iSeries (powered by McAfee) provides the following:

•Native OS/400 McAfee scanning engine

•Scans within compressed, packed and OLE files.

•Decompresses and scans files compressed in packages such as PKZip, .LHA, and .ARJ, .CHM, etc.•Detects and cleans macro and script viruses.•Detects and cleans encrypted and polymorphic viruses.

•Uses advanced heuristic analysis to detect new/unknown and generic viruses

•Detects and removes "Trojan horses", worms, and many other types of malicious software (malware).

•Green screen and iSeries Navigator plugins provided.

•Automatic download of daily virus definitions directly from McAfee's servers or the local network

•Automatic download of software updates and fixes directly from Bytware's servers or the local network
