4112 and -4112.

As the product is equal to the sum, the digits must be 1,1,2,4. No other set of digits could offer a solution.  The following is the list of positive numbers where the product  and sum of the digits are equal: 1124, 1142, 1214, 1241, 1412, 1421, 2114, 2141, 2411, 4112, 4121, & 4211.  Of these the only 4112 is evenly divisible by 8.  As the problem does not require the number (only the digits) to be positive, -4112 is also valid as it is also a four-digit number divisible by the sum of its digits.
