ENS replace HIPS, correct

Jump to solution

Hello,

We migrated to ENS, but we also have HIPS installed, but disabled. We only use IPS policies and they are disabled. Why do we still need to keep HIPS installed if it is disabled. ENS Threat Prevention covers the functionality of HIPS was protecting, correct ?

We need to uninstall HIPS but wanted to make sure ENS 10.6.1 is fully protecting our systems.

Need assistance to justify why HIPS isn't required anymore.

Hi Kblowe,

You wouldn't need HIPS on your Machine if you have ENS installed along with Exploit prevention module as both serves the same purpose, hence having any one of them would suffice.

To make sure exploit prevention work you would have to enable required rules according to your environment needs(few rules with high priority would be enabled by default). 

If you are running Exploit prevention module as a part of ENS, please go ahead and uninstall HIPS. But, as of now HIPS end of life date hasn't been announced. Check link for EOL information on our products.

Warm Regards,

Hasib

Ok thank you. Exp Prevention is currently enabled and HIPS has been disabled for quite some time.

I will take you response into consideration to justify why HIPS is no longer required.

Follow-up question. From my understanding  certain HIPS server based functionalities are not included in ENS Threat Prevention ( such as SQL signatures for example). Is that still the case?

And is there a list of what is not covered in ENS, that use to be covered in HIPS?
