ModSecurity is an efficient firewall for Apache web servers that is employed to prevent attacks against web applications. It monitors the HTTP traffic to a particular website in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts as soon as it detects them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do that - as an example, attempting to log in to a script admin area without success a few times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a particular file which may result in accessing the site triggers a different rule, etcetera. ModSecurity is one of the best firewalls available on the market and it will preserve even scripts that are not updated on a regular basis since it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Very detailed information about each and every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are a lot more detailed than the conventional logs provided by the Apache server, so you could later examine them and determine if you need to take more measures in order to improve the security of your script-driven websites.
ModSecurity in Cloud Web Hosting
ModSecurity is supplied with all cloud web hosting servers, so if you opt to host your websites with our organization, they shall be protected against a wide array of attacks. The firewall is turned on as standard for all domains and subdomains, so there'll be nothing you shall have to do on your end. You'll be able to stop ModSecurity for any website if necessary, or to switch on a detection mode, so that all activity will be recorded, but the firewall shall not take any real action. You will be able to view detailed logs via your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP where the attack originated from, what the attacker wished to do and how ModSecurity handled the threat. As we take the security of our clients' Internet sites seriously, we use a group of commercial rules which we take from one of the best companies which maintain this type of rules. Our admins also include custom rules to make sure that your Internet sites will be protected against as many threats as possible.
