ModSecurity is a highly effective web application layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the entire HTTP traffic to a site without affecting its overall performance and in case it identifies an intrusion attempt, it prevents it. The firewall furthermore keeps a more thorough log for the site visitors than any web server does, so you'll manage to keep track of what's going on with your Internet sites better than if you rely simply on standard logs. ModSecurity uses security rules based on which it helps prevent attacks. For instance, it recognizes whether someone is attempting to log in to the administrator area of a specific script a number of times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a particular command. In such circumstances these attempts trigger the corresponding rules and the firewall hinders the attempts right away, after that records detailed information about them in its logs. ModSecurity is one of the very best software firewalls on the market and it can protect your web apps against many threats and vulnerabilities, especially if you don’t update them or their plugins often.
ModSecurity in Website Hosting
We offer ModSecurity with all website hosting packages, so your Internet applications shall be resistant to malicious attacks. The firewall is switched on by default for all domains and subdomains, but if you'd like, you will be able to stop it through the respective part of your Hepsia CP. You could also activate a detection mode, so ModSecurity shall keep a log as intended, but will not take any action. The logs which you will discover inside Hepsia are incredibly detailed and offer data about the nature of any attack, when it happened and from what IP address, the firewall rule that was triggered, etc. We employ a group of commercial rules which are constantly updated, but sometimes our admins include custom rules as well so as to efficiently protect the sites hosted on our servers.
