ModSecurity is a highly effective firewall for Apache web servers that's employed to stop attacks against web applications. It tracks the HTTP traffic to a given site in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts the instant it identifies them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do this - as an illustration, attempting to log in to a script administration area without success many times triggers one rule, sending a request to execute a certain file that may result in accessing the website triggers another rule, and so forth. ModSecurity is amongst the best firewalls on the market and it will secure even scripts which aren't updated often as it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Very comprehensive information about every single intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are a lot more comprehensive than the standard logs created by the Apache server, so you may later examine them and decide whether you need to take more measures in order to increase the protection of your script-driven Internet sites.
ModSecurity in Hosting
ModSecurity is available on all hosting web servers, so if you decide to host your websites with our firm, they'll be shielded from a wide array of attacks. The firewall is enabled by default for all domains and subdomains, so there will be nothing you shall need to do on your end. You will be able to stop ModSecurity for any website if necessary, or to enable a detection mode, so that all activity will be recorded, but the firewall shall not take any real action. You shall be able to view comprehensive logs using your Hepsia CP including the IP address where the attack originated from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity addressed the threat. As we take the protection of our clients' Internet sites very seriously, we use a group of commercial rules which we get from one of the best firms that maintain this sort of rules. Our administrators also include custom rules to make sure that your websites will be resistant to as many risks as possible.
