IS HIPS still requuired if using EndPoint Security

Jump to solution
Hello, My client are all now running either EndPoint Security Threat Prevention or McAfee MOVE for Virtual clients which uses ES as the back end. All were previously running VSE. I also have Host Intrusion Prevention module installed (HIPS) however I saw somewhere that this is no longer required as its included in EndPoint Security. Please can you advise if I should remove and retire HIPS. Many Thanks Steve

Hi @smeggs ,

Thank you for reaching out for clarification,

If you are not using ENS Firewall and just using ENSTP then you can use HIPS along with ENSTP but that is legacy product and going End of life soon so not recommended. We recommend customer to use all the component of ENSTP like ENSWC,ENSFW,ENSATP which provides better protection and coverage then installing ENSTP and HIPS together on same machine.

For End of Life you can refer this link >>https://www.mcafee.com/enterprise/en-in/support/product-eol.html. Information are as below.

Product Name Version End of Support Notification End of Life / End of Support Additional Information
McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention 8 9/8/2020 12/31/2021 See KB93335 for more details. Customer should upgrade to latest version of ENS 10.7 or later. Upgrad...

Hi @smeggs 

HIPS 8.0 IPS functionality was migrated to ENSTP Access Protection and Exploit Prevention. 

HIPS 8.0 Firewall functionality was migrated to ENS Firewall. 

It would be suggested to use ENSFW (since you are using ENSTP functionality) if you ever required any endpoint firewall functionality (rather than retain using HIPS 8.0 Firewall functionality).  If not, then uninstalling HIPS 8.0 would be suggested since ENSTP/FW replaces the HIPS 8.0 product features.

Hello @smeggs  ,

If you are aleady using  McAfee ENS , you may proceed to remove HIPS from the box , because the ENS  threat prevention and Firewall modules covers it all .

ENS TP has exploit prevention which covers the exploits and IPS feature and Firewall modules cover the HIPS Firewall part .

 

Thank you ,

Hi & thanks for the response.

 

We are only using the ENS TP module and not the ENS Firewall so do we still require HIPS or is it being made EOL soon?

 

Thanks

Steve
