ModSecurity is an efficient firewall for Apache web servers that is employed to stop attacks toward web apps. It keeps track of the HTTP traffic to a certain website in real time and blocks any intrusion attempts the instant it discovers them. The firewall relies on a set of rules to do that - for instance, attempting to log in to a script admin area unsuccessfully several times activates one rule, sending a request to execute a certain file which may result in getting access to the Internet site triggers another rule, and so forth. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls out there and it'll secure even scripts that are not updated often because it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Very thorough information about every single intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are much more detailed than the standard logs provided by the Apache server, so you could later examine them and decide if you need to take more measures so as to increase the safety of your script-driven Internet sites.
ModSecurity in Cloud Hosting
ModSecurity is supplied with all cloud hosting web servers, so if you decide to host your sites with our business, they will be shielded from a wide range of attacks. The firewall is turned on by default for all domains and subdomains, so there shall be nothing you will have to do on your end. You shall be able to stop ModSecurity for any website if required, or to switch on a detection mode, so that all activity shall be recorded, but the firewall won't take any real action. You shall be able to view specific logs using your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP address where the attack came from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity addressed the threat. Since we take the protection of our clients' sites very seriously, we use a group of commercial rules that we get from one of the best companies which maintain this sort of rules. Our admins also add custom rules to ensure that your sites shall be protected against as many risks as possible.
