Bytware, Inc., has released Lotus Domino support for StandGuard Anti-Virus, part of the latest release of its award-winning virus detection and cleaning solution powered by McAfee.

Lotus Domino continues to grow as the standard for mail on IBM i (IBM Power Systems, System i, iSeries, AS/400 servers), and the requirement to scan mail natively is now, more than ever, a requirement too.

StandGuard Anti-Virus offers native scanning of mail on IBM i, and with new release 6.0, it has been expanded to include support of Lotus Domino. This new add-on feature gives users the ability to manage, scan, and clean Domino mail and databases residing on IBM servers.

Recognizing the global nature of today's computing, Bytware also is pleased to announce the availability of Lotus Domino support in Japanese with its Tokyo-based partner Solpac.

"We are very excited to be launching Domino support for StandGuard Anti-Virus in Japan. The ability to do real-time and on-demand scanning of Domino databases (NSF) is something most Japanese Domino customers using IBM i are looking for in this time frame," said Solpac president Tsutomu Fujita. "And we can now set up and maintain StandGuard Anti-Virus for Domino using the Notes client interface. This is a nice interface, which we like. Domino support with StandGuard Anti-Virus is something that is great news for the IBM i users in Japan."

The Japanese-language interface is available today, and multilingual development will continue with a German-language interface planned for a future release.

StandGuard Anti-Virus Domino features include:

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

Alerts can be configured 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 be continually aware of 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 automatic 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-so administrators can maintain an audit trail for investigations and regulatory compliance.

Ease of Management

Remote Domino servers can be configured and managed from a central administration server, reducing the time and effort normally required to manage remote servers. The log database is presented as 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.

The Domino support is an optional add-on feature of the base StandGuard Anti-Virus solution for IBM i (i5/OS), Bytware's native anti-virus solution designed to scan IFS directories for malicious code and perform advanced cleaning and notification procedures on IBM System i, iSeries, and AS/400 servers.

Features of the base StandGuard Anti-Virus solution for IBM i (i5/OS) include:

  • The latest McAfee engine designed for IBM i.
  • Scanning within compressed, packed, and OLE files.
  • Decompression and scanning of files compressed in packages such as PKZIP, .LHA, .ARJ, .CHM, etc.
  • Detection and cleaning of macro and script viruses/malicious code.
  • Detection and cleaning of encrypted and polymorphic viruses/malicious code.
  • Advanced heuristic analysis to detect new, unknown, and generic viruses/malicious code.
  • Detection and removal of Trojans, worms, and many other types of malware.
  • Object Integrity Scanning to detect potentially dangerous changes to OS Objects.
  • Green screen and Navigator plug-ins.
  • Automatic downloading of daily virus definitions directly from McAfee's servers or the local network.
  • Automatic downloading of software updates and fixes directly from Bytware's servers or the local network.
  • Built-in scheduling features for scanning and updating.
  • Extensive logging capabilities.

StandGuard Anti-Virus 6.0 is part of Bytware's StandGuard Security Suite, which includes StandGuard Anti-Virus for IBM i, i5/OS, OS/400, AIX, Linux, and Lotus Domino, along with StandGuard Network Security and StandGuard Recycle Bin.

Despite these risks, 93 percent of organizations are leaving their IBM i systems vulnerable to cybercrime. In this on-demand webinar, IBM i security experts Robin Tatam and Sandi Moore will reveal:
