    "Host-based Intrusion Prevention System — Unauthorized attempts to modify your OS or applications are actively blocked through a combination of advanced behavioral analysis and network filtering that monitor your system processes, files, and registry keys. HIPS protects against modern blended threats that may have bypassed your network perimeter security."

    Just noticed this description for ESET Smart Security 4 Business Edition on the official website.

    Is that means ESET Smart Security 4 Business Edition contains a HIPS?

    It's in the changelog for normal edition, but I definitely don't see it in normal. Anyone have the business edition to try?

    This comes as a real surprise to me, kinda shocked :eek:

    proactivelover, that was there in v3, this "HIPS" is newly advertised in v4, it may be a BE only feature.

    ESET uses firewall to "monitor your system processes, files, and registry keys"?

    If they call Intrusion Prevention as HIPS,that would be a misleading.

    Wherever it is, they did a good job of hiding it. Either that or it's been pushed back to a later build.

    Leave me wishing you could buy one license of a BE... Will this be added into the Home Edition at any point ESET?

    As it was already posted , it is available in the Changelog of all versions (not only only Business edition and not only ESS)
    http://www.eset.eu/support/changelog-eset-nod32-antivirus-4

    :thumb:

    Nothing was mentioned during the BETA and it is a bit strange for any company to integrate something without BETA test.

    Perhaps they call something in the advanced heuristics HIPS ?

    The .com link clearly states it is a BE only feature.

    If you have ESS BE 4.0.314.0 or better installed, what happens if you try and delete the ESET folder in Program Files even when logged in with full Administrator permissions? Probably works for ESS/EAV etc. as well but I've only tested it with the one so far.

    I laughed, it was great!

    Cheers :)

    I think you'll find that it is this:

    Couldn´t the new SysInspector be considered an on-demand sort of HIPS?
    You take a snapshot and after something unusual happens you take another snapshot and compare the two? The changes will then be visible. Of course its not realtime like traditional HIPS.

    The way that note is written it sounds like it is an "always on" thing running in the background o_O

    Hi!

    I just re-read this part of the Help file and I disagree with you . The way it is written (it is in the right size of the Antivirus and antispyware protection and covers all the descriptions) doesn't make sense to be the Self-Defense . Additionally , Self-Defense is the ESET product . It clearly states:

    This way , if it was the Self-Defense , when I tried to do something to its folder , it should have detected it . Behaviour analysis ? Detection capabilities of network filter ? Monitor running processes ?

    IMHO , ESET themselves should clear this statement and say what it is actually . I am sure you'll agree that no matter what it is , the way it is written now in misleading
