ModSecurity is an effective firewall for Apache web servers that's employed to stop attacks against web applications. It keeps track of the HTTP traffic to a given website in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts as soon as it identifies them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do this - for example, trying to log in to a script administrator area without success several times triggers one rule, sending a request to execute a specific file that may result in getting access to the Internet site triggers another rule, and so on. ModSecurity is amongst the best firewalls around and it'll secure even scripts which aren't updated often since it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Very comprehensive info about each and every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are a lot more comprehensive than the standard logs generated by the Apache server, so you may later take a look at them and decide whether you need to take additional measures in order to enhance the safety of your script-driven Internet sites.
ModSecurity in Cloud Hosting
We provide ModSecurity with all cloud hosting solutions, so your Internet applications shall be protected against malicious attacks. The firewall is switched on as standard for all domains and subdomains, but in case you'd like, you will be able to stop it through the respective part of your Hepsia CP. You'll be able to also switch on a detection mode, so ModSecurity shall keep a log as intended, but will not take any action. The logs that you shall discover inside Hepsia are incredibly detailed and include information about the nature of any attack, when it transpired and from what IP address, the firewall rule which was triggered, and so on. We employ a group of commercial rules which are constantly updated, but sometimes our administrators include custom rules as well in order to efficiently protect the websites hosted on our servers.
