IBM i Anti-Ransomware
Stop ransomware from damaging valuable data while preserving system performance

Protect against costly ransomware attacks

Ransomware is a cyber-attack that blocks access to a computer system or files until a determined amount of money is paid for a decryption key. Ransomware attacks any file it can access including connected devices, mapped network drivers, shared local networks, and cloud storage services. It encrypts every data file that it has access to, including IFS files.

Anti-Ransomware quickly detects high volume cyber threats deployed from an external source, isolates the threat, and prevents it from damaging valuable data.


Our solution protects against ransomware attacks and other kinds of malware that may access and change IBM i data on the IFS. It prevents ransomware from damaging valuable data while preserving system performance.

  • Identifies, stops, delays, and reports attacks in real-time
  • Suspends the attack and alerts the offending computer in real-time
  • Disconnects the intruder and sends email, messages and Syslog messages to up to 3 SIEMS in CEF/LEEF formats
  • Gets ransomware definitions updates every two hours


  • Automatic, regularly updated database
  • Command-line scanner
  • Database updater with support for digital signatures

Proven Results

Anti Ransomware was tested in an isolated lab and the results speak for themselves

Test Conditions

  • IBM i
  • Windows based PC with mapped IBM i folder
  • Set of 10+ real ransomwares (not emulators)

Documented Outcomes

  • PC data files are encrypted (as expected)
  • When IFS file was attacked, the Anti-Ransomware stopped the attack before even the first file was compromised
  • Alert was raised
  • IBM i was disconnected from the attacking PC
  • IBM i survived the attack!
