ModSecurity is a highly effective web application layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the entire HTTP traffic to an Internet site without affecting its operation and in case it discovers an intrusion attempt, it prevents it. The firewall furthermore keeps a more detailed log for the website visitors than any server does, so you shall be able to keep an eye on what's going on with your sites better than if you rely simply on standard logs. ModSecurity works with security rules based on which it helps prevent attacks. For example, it recognizes whether somebody is trying to log in to the administrator area of a particular script multiple times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a certain command. In such situations these attempts set off the corresponding rules and the software blocks the attempts in real time, after that records in-depth details about them inside its logs. ModSecurity is one of the very best software firewalls available and it can protect your web apps against a huge number of threats and vulnerabilities, particularly in case you don’t update them or their plugins frequently.
ModSecurity in Shared Web Hosting
ModSecurity is available on all shared web hosting servers, so when you choose to host your sites with our organization, they'll be protected against an array 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 will be able to stop ModSecurity for any website if necessary, or to switch on a detection mode, so all activity will be recorded, but the firewall will not take any real action. You'll be able to view comprehensive logs via your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP address where the attack originated from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity dealt with the threat. Since we take the security of our clients' sites seriously, we employ a set of commercial rules which we get from one of the best companies which maintain this kind of rules. Our administrators also add custom rules to ensure that your sites will be resistant to as many threats as possible.
