Today, the growth in computer interconnectivity brings a heightened risk of disruption or sabotage of critical operations. It is comforting to know that, while there are some who still don't fully acknowledge the threat that viruses and malicious code pose to security infrastructures, those keeping watch over the Social Security information do; and they are going on the offensive against the threat. SSA found in Bytware's StandGuard Anti-Virus was a powerful yet simple solution to the special needs of the iSeries platform. Leaving the iSeries unprotected can undermine otherwise conscientious efforts on the other platforms within the organization, while even well-intentioned efforts to guard the iSeries using PC-based anti-virus software can leave security exposures open and create new risks.
