Introducing the Firewall level and HIPS level

 

Starting from WiseVector StopX 3.0, we decided to give more options to advanced users, who can write their own rules and adjust the security level to get personalized protection.

 

Firewall Level:

Block All: Blocks all network activity, recommend choosing when you walk away from your computer for a long time or if your computer is infected.
Maximum Security: Whitelisted programs will be allowed to access the network. The user will be prompted to allow or deny the connection for all other programs, including Microsoft's own programs. This mode has most pop-ups. It is recommended for experienced users.
High Security: Whitelisted programs will be allowed to access the network. The user will be prompted to take action for programs that are identified to be moderately suspicious by AI.
Automatic mode: Whitelisted programs will be allowed to access the network. The user will be prompted to take action for programs that are identified to be highly suspicious by AI.
Low-level Security: It relies entirely on the AI's independent judgment, and basically there will be no pop-ups.
Rules-based mode: Only match the rules written by the user, the connections will be allowed if it does not match any rule.

 

HIPS level:

All risky behaviors will be analyzed by the AI first, and if they are determined to be malicious, they will be terminated directly without prompting the user. Those events that are not automatically processed will proceed to the following levels.

Maximum Security: This is the strictest mode, which is very similar to the Default Deny mode provided by other security software. Where all risky behaviors are prompted to the user except for whitelisted programs. For example, running untrusted programs, running scripts, running PowerShell, creating startup items, creating scheduled tasks, accessing user's private data, accessing the camera, etc. In this mode, there are many pop-ups, so it is recommended for experienced users.
High Security: Whitelisted programs will be allowed. The user will be prompted to take action for programs that are identified to be moderately suspicious by AI.
Automatic mode: Whitelisted programs will be allowed. The user will be prompted to take action for programs that are identified to be highly suspicious by AI.
Low-level Security: The AI will judge the behavior completely by itself, basically there will be no pop-ups.
Rule-based mode: Only match the rules written by the user, the action will be allowed if it does not match any rule.
