    Host Intrusion Prevention v8.0 (Firewall Only)

    lfah2000

      Just wanted to ask what this means (Host Intrusion Prevention v8.0 (Firewall Only) is on the download page.

       

      Found the awnser in KBKB70876 (https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB70876&actp=search&viewlo cale=en_US&searchid=1293548217367)

       

      Extension/client functionality:
      - Two versions of Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0: a firewall-only version and a full version containing both firewall and IPS protection.

       

      What is the reason to split the product in two versions but keep the name the same?

       

      Regards,

      LFAH2000.

          Firewall only is to be included in the EPS suite and the reason seems that research showed customers in that area do not have the requirements for IPS.

           

          Host IPS with Firewall will still be the same as stand alone SKU or in the security suites such as Total Protection for Endpoint, Total Protection for Secure Business or Endpoint Protection Suite.
