ModSecurity is a highly effective firewall for Apache web servers that is employed to prevent attacks towards web applications. It keeps track of the HTTP traffic to a certain website in real time and blocks any intrusion attempts as soon as it detects them. The firewall relies on a set of rules to do that - as an illustration, trying to log in to a script administration area without success several times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a specific file which may result in gaining access to the Internet site triggers another rule, etc. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls available on the market and it will preserve even scripts which are not updated often because it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Very comprehensive info about each and every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are considerably more detailed than the standard logs created by the Apache server, so you may later examine them and decide whether you need to take additional measures so as to boost the protection of your script-driven websites.
ModSecurity in Hosting
ModSecurity is supplied with all hosting machines, so when you choose to host your sites with our organization, they will be protected against a wide array of attacks. The firewall is turned on by default for all domains and subdomains, so there will be nothing you shall need to do on your end. You'll be able to stop ModSecurity for any site if necessary, or to activate a detection mode, so that all activity will be recorded, but the firewall will not take any real action. You will be able to view comprehensive logs using your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP where the attack came from, what the attacker wished to do and how ModSecurity handled the threat. As we take the security of our customers' sites seriously, we employ a set of commercial rules that we get from one of the top companies that maintain such rules. Our admins also include custom rules to make sure that your websites will be resistant to as many threats as possible.
