Hello,
I need recommendation for good HIPS - only software to use.
I use Comodo Internet Security on my PC. It runs well, but when I need to test something quickly in a VM it's not that practical to install the whole suite just for one function.
What do you recommend ?

Guest OS: Windows 10 Pro
Hypervisor(s): VMware Player 16
RAM: 4GB
CPU Cores: 2

ReHIPS is very good, if you can get past the learning curve. There's actually a lot of information on their site that covers just about everything. Haven't heard anything out of them in a couple of years, but the forum still gets responses to posts, so I guess Re HIPS is still alive.

ReHIPS is a normal HIPS only by name...from its page
"Unlike some other sandboxes ReHIPS doesn't use kernel-mode hooks, splicing and other unsafe rootkit-techniques. It is based on documented Windows security mechanisms ensuring system stability."
Actually all action of sandboxed process are limited automatically and not monitored/alerted...in result we can't create rules like in classical HIPS.
