If you had a Router Firewall, and could only use either a Third Party Firewall or a HIPS along with your favorite Antivirus for additional protection. Which one would you use? I like the idea of having a software like SSM Free or Cyberhawk along side of my AVG AV, but in the same token I also like something with the additional protection that Comodo Pro, or even the free verson of Sunbelt Kerio Firewall gives. I believe the paid version of SSM and both versions of Prosecurity offer some outbound protection and that using them may be fine. However I'm thinking that maybe a Firewall with additional protection like NIPS and Application Behavior Blocking may be the over all best solution for security along with an Antivirus, since not everyone likes using HIPS.
