    The only ViGuard I ever heard about is (or was) an Intrusion Protection System costing ~$111. Read about it HERE. It was a product of Tegam-International which, as far as I can tell, went belly-up a while ago.

    In that thread I believe WSfuser had said it was like a hips and was considerd a AV in France minus signatures and in the usa considered a IPS.Either way It looks like it was not a hit here,at least from what I see or should i say don't see.

    Hi,

    Viguard was one of the first French HIPS but the product id dead today.
    It was a TeGam product and is technical director work now for Bufferzone.

    Viguard was like Defensewall (not for all functions).

    (I know Viguard because i have buy a licence by the past ...).

    Many peapole talk about bad product because they don't know how it work.

    Regards,
