ModSecurity is a highly effective firewall for Apache web servers that is employed to stop attacks towards web apps. It tracks the HTTP traffic to a particular site in real time and blocks any intrusion attempts the instant it identifies them. The firewall relies on a set of rules to accomplish that - for instance, trying to log in to a script administrator area unsuccessfully several times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a certain file that could result in gaining access to the site triggers another rule, and so forth. ModSecurity is amongst the best firewalls on the market and it will secure even scripts that are not updated regularly since it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Incredibly comprehensive data about each and every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are a lot more detailed than the regular logs provided by the Apache server, so you can later analyze them and determine whether you need to take extra measures in order to increase the safety of your script-driven Internet sites.
ModSecurity in Website Hosting
We provide ModSecurity with all website hosting plans, so your web apps will be resistant to malicious attacks. The firewall is activated 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 can also activate a detection mode, so ModSecurity will keep a log as intended, but shall not take any action. The logs that you will discover within Hepsia are very 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 regularly updated, but sometimes our admins add custom rules as well in order to efficiently protect the websites hosted on our servers.
