    From using the ESET HIPS module in the RC it appeared to do very little in the default mode and acted like a typical old school pop-up tastic classic HIPS in interactive mode only with no whitelisting, default allow for trusted/signed or any of the more user friendly things most classical HIPS have built in nowadays or the breadth of protected areas covered by the best of classic HIPS. It is very early days though and as user feedback builds it may change.

    Defensewall is different because it applies very tight policy restrictions to untrusted apps, and anything which spawns from them, with limited user interaction and with very few pop-ups.

    For me currently it's same differences as between Defensewall and any classic style HIPS only more so for ESET. Defensewall is an easy to use policy based sandbox, the others can provide more granular control but need a higher degree of user interaction and knowledge.

    Cheers
