Host Intrusion Protection Software (HIPS)


Definition: Host intrusion protection software, or HIPS, provides rule and behavior-based system monitoring to guard against unwanted changes. HIPS can be used alongside traditional antivirus software to add an extra layer of security. Some host intrusion protection software provides a learning mode and pre-configured rules, but in general HIPS is best suited for more advanced computer users.
