You can read more about DefenseWall on its website.

Basically, it is designed as a complement to your antivirus, by isolating applications that connect to the Internet, so any malware that gets in can't damage your computer.

A host-based IPS (HIPS) is where the intrusion-prevention application is resident on that specific IP address, usually on a single computer. HIPS complements traditional finger-print-based and heuristic antivirus detection methods, since it does not need continuous updates to stay ahead of new malware. As ill-intended code needs to modify the system or other software residing on the machine to achieve its evil aims, a truly comprehensive HIPS system will notice some of the resulting changes and prevent the action by default or notify the user for permission.
