    Really? How can a SRP program (AppGuard) be compared to Eset IS?

    Nothing on the internet is anonymous.

    Eset IS covers my entire network/mobile devices. If one so chooses, there is a Policy Based Mode available for the HIPS and Firewall both, not to mention many other features not enabled by default. EIS is very powerful if one strolls through the advanced settings and learns the functions. While AG adds another layer, it is not necessary, and frankly money I can spend on other things.

    Any reason you don't add OpenPhish to your own uB0? Looks good, I see VT uses it ...
