What does “HIPS” mean anyway?

It stands for Host Intrusion Prevention System.

In essence it’s a program that alerts the user to a malware program such as a virus that may be trying to run on the user’s computer, or that an unauthorized user such as a hacker may have gained access to the user’s computer
