This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

This is a very important need for the small IBM i shops out there. There are only 2 commercial AV platforms for the IBM i and they are way overpriced. Like absurdly overpriced. Like paying Porsche 911 money for a worn out bicycle. If we at least had something out there like CLAM AV this could be a way to get others on board.
The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a MEDIUM priority requirement that should be addressed. Having an open solution to meet this need seems like a good idea. However, we have voted medium as we would like IBM to focus on other prioriries at this time
Background: The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.
To find out how CEAC help to shape the future of IBM i, see CEAC @ ibm.biz/BdYSYj and the article "The Five Hottest IBM i RFEs Of The Quarter" at ibm.biz/BdYSZT

The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority requirement that should be addressed. Expanding the use of Open Source applications into anti-virus would be nice to have, in addition to existing commercial applications. (However, putting this on IBM i 7.1 does not seem reasonable since it is out of support.)
