Host IPS

Is adding Host IPS on the roadmap for endpoints? This would be beneficial as another layer to prevent an exploit of the system.

I would say the entire SandBlast Agent suite functions as a host IPS.
What precise functionality do you perceive as missing?

The ability to provide prevention at the network layer prior to any code execution on the host itself.

Not exactly sure how that would work since code would have to execute code on the host itself to process packets from the network.
A properly configured desktop firewall (which we do offer) can help limit what is processed by the host.
Also, if the traffic is encrypted, there's not much to process until the packets are decrypted, where our existing SandBlast Agent protections will help.
