FNTS, a managed services provider with decades of experience supporting mainframe environments across the nation, has launched Advanced Threat Protection for IBM i.

“In recent years, advancements in cloud technology, remote access and other innovations have opened IBM i’s distributed environments and networks up to the rise of ransomware, latent threats and viruses waiting to spread,” said Robert LaMagna-Reiter, Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer for FNTS. “Advanced Threat Protection for IBM i is the latest security offering from FNTS that helps mitigate and address vulnerabilities to prevent IBM i machines from becoming a source of infection.”

The new service provides intuitive anti-virus and anti-ransomware protection backed by FNTS’ certified expertise that closes security gaps with real-time monitoring, threat detection and triage.
