Is Xcitium EDR or Kaspersky better for protection. I use Kaspersky currently but if Xcitium EDR is better for like home use or something I might use it since its free. But I use Hardened Kaspersky with restricted HIPS and I wanna know if thats better since I think Kaspersky has the better detection engine, and also is similar to Xcitium where it denys unknowns from running.

I like the HIPS setup in Kaspersky, especially with the default locked files. It's a "sandbox" level, similar to Xcitium, but with a better, as you said, scanning engine. So for now I'm leaning towards Kaspersky with Hardened HIPS.
