    Hi,

     

    HIPS (Host Intrusion Preventing System) is a general term.

    Modules like firewall, intrusion detection system, process monitors, systemhooks monitor...  are part of this.

    The core of F-Secure's HIPS is Deepguard, a rule based decision logic that merges the indications for possible intrusions.

    So Deepguard is the heart of F-Secure's  HIPS-strategy.

     

    An independent firewall plus a free antivirus can never build a strong HIPS.

     

    You can find more details on Deepguard here:

    So if I want to HIPS, I should buy F-Secure internet Security instead Anti-Virus, right?

    Is there a whitepaper about Deepguard 4.0 ?

    Yes, if you want to be protected from Browser Exploits you should use FSIS.

     

    Don't know if there is a whitepaper on DG4, but the changes are improvements in the communication and the decission logic. Hopefully the Team will pick it up and update the documenet where needed...

    nope, it always was since its original release, but on every new release of F-Secure AV icnludes updated Deepguard(4.0 on 2012 version, 2.0 on 2011, and so on).

     

    Research and development team of F-Secure tries to make DeepGuard better and better.
