Bytware renames, positions security product


Bytware, Inc., the award-winning developer of monitoring, security, and notification solutions for the iSeries and eServer i5, announced that it is shortening the name of its ServerProven flagship security product from StandGuard Network Security to simply StandGuard.

"We decided to make the change to better position the StandGuard product at the head of our growing family of security solutions," explained Christopher Jones, Marketing Manager for Bytware. "Network Security implied a niche role that did not truly encompass the broad power of StandGuard."

Additional offerings, including StandGuard Anti-Virus for iSeries and StandGuardAudit, can be combined to enhance overall protection to an extent not previously available on the platform. StandGuard Anti-Virus is the world's first and only native virus protection solution for the iSeries. A fully-functional 15-day trial is now shipping with all i5/OS systems and upgrades. StandGuardAudit is a free assessment utility available directly from Bytware.

Bytware pioneered automated monitoring and notification in the late 1980s with its Messenger product and revolutionized iSeries security at the start of the new millennium with StandGuard, followed by the release of StandGuard Anti-Virus, powered by McAfee. Bytware is committed to providing its customers with new, innovative and cost effective means to managing system events and security, and devotes 100% of its development and marketing resources to this end. Bytware is an Advanced Business Partner with IBM.
