ModSecurity is a highly effective firewall for Apache web servers that's employed to prevent attacks against web apps. It monitors the HTTP traffic to a particular Internet site in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts the moment it identifies them. The firewall uses a set of rules to accomplish that - as an example, trying to log in to a script admin area without success several times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a specific file that could result in gaining access to the site triggers a different rule, and so forth. ModSecurity is amongst the best firewalls available and it will preserve even scripts that aren't updated often since it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Very comprehensive data about each and every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are a lot more comprehensive than the regular logs provided by the Apache server, so you may later analyze them and decide whether you need to take extra measures in order to increase the safety of your script-driven Internet sites.
ModSecurity in Hosting
ModSecurity is provided with all hosting machines, so if you decide to host your websites with our firm, they will be resistant to an array of attacks. The firewall is enabled as standard for all domains and subdomains, so there will be nothing you will have to do on your end. You'll be able to stop ModSecurity for any website if required, or to enable a detection mode, so all activity shall be recorded, but the firewall won't take any real action. You shall be able to view specific logs via your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP address where the attack originated from, what the attacker planned to do and how ModSecurity dealt with the threat. As we take the security of our clients' sites very seriously, we employ a set of commercial rules which we get from one of the top firms that maintain such rules. Our administrators also include custom rules to ensure that your websites will be protected against as many threats as possible.
