A HIDS or HIPS application is a secondary line of defense behind the antivirus. The application will monitor all ports and the dynamic state of a development system. If the application detects irregularities on the system, it will block incoming traffic that may potentially compromise the development system that can lead to a DoS or data theft.
Review the development images to determine whether a HIDS or HIPS application is installed and configured. If a HIDS or HIPS application is not installed and configured on the development image, this is a finding.
If there isn't any application development occurring in the zone environment, this requirement is not applicable.
