How Can I Disable HIPS in ENS for Macs

Hello, I know that with Windows endpoints with VSE and HIPS installed, I can create a policy that disables hips and assign that policy.

Can I do the same or is there a different process for disabling HIPS or HIPS features in Endpoint Security for Macs (10.2)?

Re: How Can I Disable HIPS in ENS for Macs

Thanks for reaching out to community. 

HIPS is not supported product for MAC. Please refer to the KB below where HIPS is supported for Windows and Linux only.

Exploit prevention is the feature that comes with signature based detection. This feature was not available either with ENSM and was improvised after ENSM 10.5 and above. 

Refer to ENSM 10.2 versions below.

Please let me know if your query is answered. Kindly write back if you needed additional details.
