McAfee HIPS(McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention system)
System 800xA 5.1 FP4
Can McAfee HIPS(McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention system) can it be activated in connectivity servers ?
Info from McAfee website
"McAfee HIP is a very comprehensive Host Intrusion Prevention software and can be managed quite effectively.
There are two types of the Application Protection settings, One is Learn mode and the other one is Adaptive mode hwich is the more on the aggressive side. Talking about your application. If you know for sure that this application is safe to be run, you just have to add it to the trusted list or allow it. Thats all and HIPS will not stop it. But yes, Initially it will give you many popups even when the slightest actions from that program but as and how you keep allowing it, it will create rules for the same and would not stop the functioning of the program."
I'm not so sure about this and you can not expect to treat all kinds of connectivity servers the same since they contain different software and network connections.
