Slide 2

I deployed the CA Host-Based Intrusion Prevention System in "verbose" mode so that I could see the local console. It can be deployed silently and with no local user interface. Notice that the firewall, intrusion prevention and operating system protection modules are also installed (see "POLICY INFORMATION," lower left).

CA HIPS combines application whitelisting with host-based security firewall, IPS and operating system protections.
