When will we be seeing Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0- Release Date?

Jump to solution

Hi All

i did a large deployment for a client about this time last year, and while the deployment was on the whole a success, there were a few bugs that i was told at the time were ''going to be addressed in HIPS 8.0'' . I am not just about to commence another deployment and i am wondering where 8.0 is. . .i see no mention of it anywhere. I believe it will be a fairly comprehensive release, when it finally gets RTM''ed. Any McAfee engineers care to share? I see Q3 2010 is penned somewhere, but that seems an awful way off, is this a ground up redesign?

regards

James

HIP 8.0 is currently scheduled to release in early Q4 2010.

Yes, this is a major redesign.  The kernel firewall driver will be based on NDIS 6.0 instead of NDIS 5.0.

Application Blocking has become a component of Host IPS.

You will also be able to specifiy processes by path, hash or digital signer.

Thanks, thats interesting. I am actually requesting at the moment to become part of the private beta program as i want to roadmap the possible use of it in a customer environment, so i would be interested to find out the nitty gritty details of what its capabilities will be. I look forward to finding out.

Regards

James

Hi All,

few days left before the year ends and still version 8 not yet released. Is it still protected for Q4?

There are other posts on this topic. Last information I have seen is that it is on target, just like VSE 8.8 is...  (PS - "a few days" isn't correct... There are 19 days left in Q4 according to my calendar)

Hi,

Thanks for the response. Yes as you said, still there are 18 days to wait for the new releases. Hope to see major performance improvement because current versions are slowing down clients sharply. Neighbor company changed to Trend Micro because of this as well as virus catch rate.
