One of the most demanding challenges security programs have had to address in the last few years has been the increasing diversiﬁcation of attack vectors through which malware can arrive onto a host machine, especially as more applications, networks and services become hosted on or accessible over the Internet.
This has been of particular concern with the growing popularity of online-based attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in applications installed on a machine in order to run malicious code.
This white paper explains the trends and developments in computing that have made host-based behavioural analysis and exploit interception necessary elements of computer security and provides an overview of the technology and methodology used by DeepGuard, the Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) of F-Secure’s security products.
