HIPS8 vs VirusScan 8.8i


Has I understand, some HIPS8 feature overlap those of VirusScan 8.8. If it is true, is there a guide that list what could be disable from VirusScan since HIPS protection seem more efficient.

I only found this document but it seem outdated

The VSE BOP (Buffer Overflow Protection) gets disabled when you install HIPS as this takes over the overflow protection as part of the IPS module.
