ModSecurity is a potent web app layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the whole HTTP traffic to an Internet site without affecting its overall performance and in case it detects an intrusion attempt, it blocks it. The firewall also maintains a more detailed log for the site visitors than any web server does, so you will manage to monitor what's going on with your sites much better than if you rely only on standard logs. ModSecurity works with security rules based on which it helps prevent attacks. For example, it recognizes whether someone is trying to log in to the administration area of a specific script multiple times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a particular command. In such situations these attempts trigger the corresponding rules and the firewall hinders the attempts right away, and then records comprehensive information about them inside its logs. ModSecurity is one of the best software firewalls out there and it can easily protect your web applications against many threats and vulnerabilities, especially if you don’t update them or their plugins frequently.
ModSecurity in Cloud Website Hosting
ModSecurity is available on all cloud website hosting servers, so when you opt to host your Internet sites with our business, they'll be shielded from a wide range of attacks. The firewall is turned on by default for all domains and subdomains, so there'll be nothing you will need to do on your end. You shall be able to stop ModSecurity for any website if necessary, or to activate a detection mode, so all activity shall be recorded, but the firewall won't take any real action. You shall be able to view detailed logs using your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP where the attack came from, what the attacker wished to do and how ModSecurity dealt with the threat. As we take the safety of our clients' sites seriously, we employ a group of commercial rules which we take from one of the top companies that maintain this kind of rules. Our administrators also include custom rules to make certain that your sites will be protected against as many threats as possible.
