- ICE Walls offer basic protection, intercepting damage before it reaches a node.
- Protectors can regenerate their buffer, greatly increasing the time before a node is recaptured.
Each program takes a certain amount of time to be installed on a node, during which the program is not active. However, if the node is recaptured by the network in that time, the program will be lost. Each program also takes a certain amount of disk space, which it occupies in program libraries once it is compiled. Finally, each program also takes a certain amount of time to assemble in the Compiler. Programs can be compiled instantly by using Credits.

- Defensive programs can not be used in stealth attacks.
- Once the buffer of a defensive program is depleted, it is removed from the node, freeing up a slot to place another program. Programs can also be removed manually by selecting the node and tapping the program.
