ESET's Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) is included in ESET Endpoint Security and ESET Endpoint Antivirus. 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.
To ensure that HIPS is enabled on your system, follow the step-by-step instructions below:
Open ESET Endpoint Security or ESET Endpoint Antivirus. Open my ESET product.
- Click Setup in the main program window. In the Computer tab of the Setup module, make sure that HIPS is enabled. If HIPS has been disabled on your system, click here for instructions to re-enable HIPS.
