ModSecurity is a highly effective web app layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the whole HTTP traffic to a website without affecting its functionality and when it discovers an intrusion attempt, it blocks it. The firewall furthermore keeps a more comprehensive log for the site visitors than any web server does, so you'll manage to monitor what's going on with your sites much better than if you rely simply on conventional logs. ModSecurity works with security rules based on which it stops attacks. For instance, it detects if someone is trying to log in to the administrator area of a given script multiple times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a certain command. In these instances these attempts trigger the corresponding rules and the firewall blocks the attempts instantly, after that records comprehensive details about them in its logs. ModSecurity is among the best software firewalls out there and it could easily protect your web apps against a huge number of threats and vulnerabilities, particularly in case you don’t update them or their plugins regularly.
ModSecurity in Shared Website Hosting
ModSecurity is available on all shared website hosting web servers, so if you decide to host your Internet sites with our business, they shall be shielded from an array of attacks. The firewall is turned on by default for all domains and subdomains, so there'll be nothing you shall have to do on your end. You shall be able to stop ModSecurity for any website if required, or to activate a detection mode, so that all activity will be recorded, but the firewall shall not take any real action. You will be able to view detailed logs using your Hepsia CP including the IP where the attack originated from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity dealt with the threat. Since we take the protection of our clients' sites seriously, we use a group of commercial rules which we take from one of the leading firms that maintain such rules. Our administrators also add custom rules to ensure that your Internet sites will be resistant to as many threats as possible.
