ModSecurity is a potent web application layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the whole HTTP traffic to a website without affecting its performance and in case it discovers an intrusion attempt, it prevents it. The firewall also keeps a more comprehensive log for the site visitors than any server does, so you shall be able to monitor what's going on with your sites much better than if you rely merely on conventional logs. ModSecurity works with security rules based on which it stops attacks. For instance, it identifies if someone is attempting to log in to the admin area of a certain script multiple times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a specific command. In these circumstances these attempts set off the corresponding rules and the firewall software hinders the attempts immediately, and then records in-depth details about them inside its logs. ModSecurity is amongst the most effective software firewalls available and it could easily protect your web applications against thousands of threats and vulnerabilities, particularly in case you don’t update them or their plugins regularly.
ModSecurity in Cloud Web Hosting
ModSecurity is available on all cloud web hosting machines, so when you opt to host your sites with our company, they'll be shielded from a wide range of attacks. The firewall is enabled by default for all domains and subdomains, so there'll be nothing you will need to do on your end. You will be able to stop ModSecurity for any site if necessary, or to enable a detection mode, so all activity shall be recorded, but the firewall won't take any real action. You will be able to view detailed logs from your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP where the attack came from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity dealt with the threat. As we take the protection of our customers' websites very seriously, we use a selection of commercial rules which we get from one of the leading companies that maintain this sort of rules. Our administrators also include custom rules to make certain that your websites will be shielded from as many threats as possible.
