Hi Guys, I have been in forum for quite sometime and was always interested in the topics everyone brought up. This site is the first thing I visit when I reach office. I have a question in mind and was quite confused....Here it goes: Firewall is for monitoring both incoming and outgoing traffic from a computer. So I assume anything, including threats such as keyloggers, will not be able to pass through the firewall. How will HIPS come into picture then? My understanding of HIPS is that it protects pc based on behaviours and monitors the process in the background. It will alert, just like a firewall, if a suspicious activity is detected. Now can someone please enlighten me if my understanding of these 2 technologies are correct and how they complement each other?
