Host Intrusion Prevention Systems protect your system from malware and unwanted activity likely to interfere with the running of your computer. A HIPS generally works on a different principle to an anti-virus scanner – it monitors entry points into the system (and specific system activities, such as process creation, driver loading, etc.) and blocks suspected intrusion attempts (or prompts the user to allow or reject a suspicious activity).
