Does a virus have your server down? Perhaps it’s the latest worm, Trojan horse, buffer overflow or denial of service attack that’s got you or one of your servers down. While one of these bugs may be affecting one or more of your servers in your enterprise, it is highly unlikely that the server affected is a Power server running IBM i. IBM i may be running your core business applications or it may be hosting your web site or running Domino. Whatever its function within your enterprise IBM i has remained unaffected by virus and malware attacks. Why is that?
Viruses and other ailments spread by infecting a host that is vulnerable. Let’s take a look at how IBM i and the applications running on it can remain unscathed by the viruses and malware that are so prevalent today.

The surge in data breaches and cyber attacks over the past few years has spurred organizations to cast a wider net when it comes to security. In particular, they are more keen to purchase cyber insurance policies that cover a comprehensive range of liabilities, including malware-infected mainframes, distributed denial of service attacks, and other issues that could trigger unplanned downtime.
One of the most telling revelations of the holiday breach at Target was that the retailer had purchased at least $100 million worth of cyber insurance. The incident exposed data on as many as 70 million payment card accounts, but Target’s insurance purchases could be a sign of things to come. Going forward, more organizations may sign up for policies as insurers get better at quantifying breach risks and IT departments seek an additional layer of protection to cover key assets.
