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 performance and in case it discovers an intrusion attempt, it prevents it. The firewall also maintains a more comprehensive log for the site visitors than any server does, so you'll be able to monitor what's happening with your sites much better than if you rely only on conventional logs. ModSecurity works with security rules based on which it stops attacks. For instance, it detects if anyone is attempting to log in to the administration area of a given script a number of times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a certain command. In such instances these attempts set off the corresponding rules and the firewall software blocks the attempts right away, then records comprehensive info about them in its logs. ModSecurity is among the very best software firewalls available and it can easily protect your web applications against thousands of threats and vulnerabilities, especially in case you don’t update them or their plugins frequently.
ModSecurity in Shared Website Hosting
ModSecurity is supplied with all shared website hosting servers, so if you decide to host your websites with our organization, they shall be resistant to a wide array of attacks. The firewall is enabled 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 Internet site if required, or to switch on a detection mode, so all activity shall be recorded, but the firewall won't take any real action. You shall be able to view specific logs via your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP address where the attack originated from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity handled the threat. Since we take the security of our clients' Internet sites seriously, we employ a selection of commercial rules which we take from one of the top companies that maintain such rules. Our administrators also include custom rules to make sure that your Internet sites will be shielded from as many threats as possible.
