ModSecurity is a powerful firewall for Apache web servers which is employed to stop attacks towards web apps. It monitors the HTTP traffic to a particular site in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts the instant it identifies them. The firewall uses a set of rules to accomplish that - as an example, attempting to log in to a script administrator area without success many times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a certain file that may result in accessing the Internet site triggers a different rule, etcetera. ModSecurity is among 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. Quite thorough info about every single intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are considerably more specific than the standard logs created by the Apache server, so you could later take a look at them and determine whether you need to take extra measures in order to enhance the security of your script-driven sites.

ModSecurity is supplied with all cloud website hosting web servers, so when you opt to host your websites with our business, they'll be protected against a wide array of attacks. The firewall is enabled by default for all domains and subdomains, so there will be nothing you will need 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 will not take any real action. You'll be able to view specific logs from your Hepsia CP including the IP where the attack originated from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity dealt with the threat. Since we take the safety of our clients' websites seriously, we employ a selection of commercial rules which we take from one of the top companies which maintain such rules. Our admins also add custom rules to make certain that your sites shall be protected against as many risks as possible.
