Firewall

Jump to solution

I know that VSE is only the antivirus program. But I'm confused as to what the firewall is. We would need a firewall to compliment VSE, but have no clue what it is. Firewall, HIPS, etc, we're not sure.

VSE has a very basic firewall.  It can restrict traffic on specific ports in or out, but you can't create rules with respect to specific IP addresses.

HIPS has a built-in firewall component.  There is also a firewall-only version of HIPS that you can use, and it is included with some of McAfee's suite packages, as well.

Ok, thanks. I'll toss HIPS on there and test it out.

Hi nthnu,

Antivirus (Av) detect virus based on pre-defined signature & it does not  protect from vulnerability of the system but Hips does not work only on signature based but it also work on system behaviour based & Protocol.

Hope it make you understand..

Thanks
