ModSecurity is a powerful web app layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the whole HTTP traffic to a website without affecting its performance and when it discovers an intrusion attempt, it prevents it. The firewall also keeps a more comprehensive log for the traffic than any server does, so you'll manage to monitor what's going on with your websites a lot better than if you rely simply on standard logs. ModSecurity uses security rules based on which it helps prevent attacks. For example, it recognizes if someone is trying to log in to the administration area of a given script multiple times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a certain command. In these instances these attempts set off the corresponding rules and the firewall software blocks the attempts in real time, and then records detailed information about them in its logs. ModSecurity is among the very best software firewalls on the market and it can easily protect your web apps against a huge number of threats and vulnerabilities, particularly if you don’t update them or their plugins frequently.
ModSecurity in Cloud Web Hosting
ModSecurity is provided with all cloud web hosting web servers, so if you choose to host your websites with our organization, they shall be protected against a wide array of attacks. The firewall is enabled by default for all domains and subdomains, so there'll be nothing you'll have to do on your end. You shall be able to stop ModSecurity for any website if necessary, or to switch on a detection mode, so that all activity shall be recorded, but the firewall won't take any real action. You will be able to view comprehensive logs from your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP address where the attack originated from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity handled the threat. As we take the security of our customers' sites seriously, we employ a group of commercial rules that we take from one of the leading companies that maintain this sort of rules. Our administrators also add custom rules to make certain that your sites shall be shielded from as many risks as possible.
