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:

Thanks, MJ

 

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

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...
