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 set of pre-defined 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 the potentially harmful activity. Changes to the Enable HIPS and Enable Self-defense settings take effect after the Windows operating system is restarted.
Endpoint users: Perform these steps on individual client workstations
Computers assigned to the policy that you have modified will receive this new HIPS rule the next time they check into ESET PROTECT Server.
