About DefenseWall HIPS:
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.
But DefenseWall HIPS uses whitelists and blacklists to control the privileges of the programs that run on your PC. By reducing the privileges of Internet-facing and other vulnerable programs it very effectively prevents the installation of malware. Because it is not signature-based it is effective in preventing zero-day threats.
Remember, you cannot rely upon one single protection mechanism for all your Internet Security needs.
