ESET Internet Security and ESET Smart Security Premium contain Network attack protection as well as Botnet protection which provide comprehensive protection from network attacks, including those that exploit not yet patched vulnerabilities in network protocols.

Thanks for your support 

but as you said why there is not any section in Advanced Setup For IPS , Just an option for IDS

is it means that ESET Internet Security and ESET Smart Security Premium just Supports The Detection of Intrusions And Can not Preventing intrusions ?

Thank you

Most of home users do not know what IDS or IPS is. We use Network protection and Botnet protection to actively monitor and block malicious communication, attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in network protocol, block brute-force attacks, etc.

Varonis has a good article on the difference between IDS and IPS here: https://www.varonis.com/blog/ids-vs-ips/ . The differences can best be summed up per the below screen shot from the article.

View Eset IDS protection as hybrid protection using features of both IDS and IPS. Since Eset consumer versions are designed for minimal user interaction when it comes to malware remediation decision making, it has "automated" that as much as possible when it comes to IDS detection activities.

Since you mentioned also NDIS, this is the actual inspection of external network packet data. In consumer environments this is usually performed by one's router; especially if it includes a firewall. Also most of these router firewall's include limited IDS/IPS protection; e.g. detection of ARP poisoning.

Eset performs packet inspection via use of the Windows Filtering Platform as is the norm for other security products doing the same these days. One thing a router can't inspect network packet-wise is encrypted traffic. Eset does via use of its SSL/TLS protocol filtering feature.
