ModSecurity is an efficient firewall for Apache web servers that's employed to stop attacks against web apps. It monitors the HTTP traffic to a specific Internet site in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts as soon as it discovers them. The firewall uses a set of rules to accomplish that - for example, trying to log in to a script admin area unsuccessfully several times activates one rule, sending a request to execute a specific file that could result in accessing the Internet site triggers a different rule, and so forth. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls available and it'll preserve even scripts which aren't updated regularly since it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Quite comprehensive info about every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are far more comprehensive than the standard logs generated by the Apache server, so you can later take a look at them and determine whether you need to take extra measures in order to enhance the safety of your script-driven Internet sites.
ModSecurity in Hosting
We offer ModSecurity with all hosting solutions, so your Internet apps will be protected against destructive attacks. The firewall is switched on by default for all domains and subdomains, but if you'd like, you shall be able to stop it through the respective area of your Hepsia CP. You could also activate a detection mode, so ModSecurity will keep a log as intended, but will not take any action. The logs which you will discover in Hepsia are very detailed and include information about the nature of any attack, when it took place and from what IP, the firewall rule which was triggered, etcetera. We employ a group of commercial rules that are constantly updated, but sometimes our administrators add custom rules as well in order to efficiently protect the websites hosted on our machines.
