should def+ IPS instead of HIPS

from what i’ve read IPS monitors both the host and the network activity and HIPS monitors only the host. i know cis has a firewall but does it provide what a IPS provides along with the firewall?

if it doesn’t would cis strengthen it’s security by switching def+ from a HIPS to an IPS?

if it wouldn’t provide better security to switch to IPS, why wouldn’t it provide better security

I think that you’ll need to post a URL on what you’ve been reading, since as far as I know IPS (Intrusion Prevention Systems), also known as Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS), is merely a overall classification that includes; Network-based Intrusion Prevention (NIPS), Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (WIPS), Network Behavior Analysis (NBA) and Host-based Intrusion Prevention (HIPS).

CIS’ firewall would encompass NIPS and NBA.

i read wrong sorry. i don’t know how i missed that IPS is the umbrella of HIPS, NIPS, WIPS and NBA.

so my real question should be, should comodo add NIPS to cis on top of the firewall that they have already.

if they did would it provide significantly stronger protection. also could NIPS solve this issue
