DefenseWall HIPS a part of DefenseWall Firewall.

Kaspersky Internet Security and AVG Internet Security already have their own Firewalls, it is not recommended to use more than one Firewall on your computer

Ashwin: Is it good to install DefenseWall with AntiVirus software together? Would it be better than Online Armor Firewall? Thanks for advice!

I haven't used DefenseWall. So I can't comment on its effectiveness. But yes you can install with an Anti-virus.

PS: Better than Online Armor ? No way :heh:

Yes, good to install. It works in a different manner than Online Armor firewall.

Read below the Developer's description:

Quote:DefenseWall Personal Firewall - the world's first sandboxing-style personal firewall solution
  • No learning modes (as seen with firewall and HIPS programs).
  • Mininimal popups.
  • Compatible with third-party security software and programs.
  • No need to configure ports and sockets.
  • No application checksum re-calculations.
Average users find it difficult to setup and use your typical firewall and security program. For most average users, program popups and questions are confusing. There is always the chance a user will make the wrong choice and allow malware to cause damage to their system.

DefenseWall Personal Firewall is a different kind of security program. You won't even notice it's installed and providing the highest firewall and system protection.

DefenseWall HIPS (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System) is based on a sandboxing approach that uses rights restrictions and partial virtualization. It now comes with an integrated firewall. What this means in simple terms is that malicious files will not have the 'rights' to perform any unwanted changes to your system or be able to make any unwanted connections.

Malware stems from various sources such as internet browsers, usb flash drives, e-mail, multimedia clients, IM, IRC, P2P, and VoIP. All of these programs are automatically marked by DefenseWall HIPS as "untrusted". If malware attempts to install on your system via an "untrusted" program, DefenseWall's inbuilt restrictions (HIPS) will prevent your system from becoming infected. And if malware tries to steal your information such as financial and banking passwords through an "untrusted" program, the Personal Firewall component will stop malware cold from calling home.

Quote:Why do I need HIPS if I already have an anti-virus and firewall?
Firewalls control your network activity, antivirus protects you only from known malicious modules. But their writers modify those modules so quickly, that anti-viruses are unable to detect them untill you will be infected with it. That is why you need a HIPS solution- it protects you from all types of malicious software (malware), known and unknown, with no signatures need, proactive way.
