What is Host Based Intrusion Detection (HIDS)?

HIDS stands for host-based intrusion detection system and is an application installed on hardware to monitor a computer or network for suspicious activities, either from external sources or through internal data misuse. HIDS help your business identify threats that could have breached the IT network perimeter by monitoring host devices for suspicious activity.  It is also known as Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) or Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

HIDS can be used to identify a range of threats including unauthorised login attempts and the installation of unwanted applications. HIDS will protect critical hardware including:

  • Workstations
  • Servers
  • AD servers
  • Azure AD
  • Security and other devices

How Does HIDS Work?

HIDS works by tracking changes made to registry settings, log and content files and your critical system configuration. A HIDS agent is installed and alerts us to any unauthorised or unusual activity. A HIDS system uses a combination of detection methods.

  • Signature-based detection compares files against a database of known malicious signatures.
  • Anomaly-based detection tracks anything on the system that appears to be atypical behaviour.
