I hear that both the firewall (in version 3.0) and antivirus (in version 1.1 b2) will both support HIPS. I’m just wondering how these applications will work together. Will both the firewall and antivirus share the same hips functions or will they have their own features?
A traditional HIPS app is focussed on monitoring the entry vectors into a system. As such, Comodo seem to be viewing this as an extension of the firewalls traffic monitoring. The application-centric HIPS that will be in CAVS is more an extension to the real time scanning component of the AV.
I appreciate the confusion. Sometimes when someone comes up with a whole new way of looking at things, it takes a while to understand, particularly if we’re comparing old methods to new methods.
Keeping in mind that I am just not a good candidate to try out a program in beta, is there a HIPS application out there that you would reccomend until CAVS is out of beta? I was usuing On-line armor but found that it conflicted with Comodo and or slowed my system down to much.
I’m considering Safety System Monitor or Antihook (free versions)
Oh great more memory and cpu usage, lol! Please i hope this firewall doesn’t turn into all the rest of those overloaded and bloated firewalls out there that cause more problems than help. I like when programs stick to what they are designed to do! When you start trying to make one program do it all thats when its time to drop it, whether it be free or not. Just my opinion. There are other programs out there that provide all those extra functions. As previously mentioned, SSM, and others like prevx, processguard, ect. But if somehow you can add this extra function to the firewall while also lowering the already pretty high mem and cpu usage, then go for it. But I say Keep It Basic!
