Industrial Defender releases Host Intrusion Prevention System

June 23, 2010 - Industrial Defender's Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) prevents malware attacks and non-trusted software modifications on control system servers and end-point devices. HIPS is specifically designed for industrial control system environments which must avoid the high overhead of scanning operations common with traditional anti-virus technologies, as well as the administrative overhead of frequent patch updates. A whitelisting-based solution, HIPS permits only a predetermined list of authorized applications to launch on each automation system computer. By ensuring that only approved, trusted applications can execute, HIPS automatically blocks all unauthorized applications, including unknown malware and rogue applications installed by users.HIPS Benefits

  • No impact to system performance, unlike resource-intensive antivirus solutions
  • No consumption of limited bandwidth
  • Reduces number of time-consuming security patches
  • Extends life of out-of-support systems
