ESET's Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) is included in ESET Endpoint Security, ESET Endpoint Antivirus, ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange, and ESET File Security for Microsoft Windows Server. HIPS monitors system activity and uses a pre-defined set of rules to recognize suspicious system behavior. When this type of activity is identified, the HIPS self-defense mechanism stops the offending program or process from carrying out potentially harmful activity. Changes to the Enable HIPS and Enable Self-defense settings take effect after the Windows operating system is restarted.
