ModSecurity is an effective firewall for Apache web servers which is employed to stop attacks toward web apps. It keeps track of the HTTP traffic to a given site in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts the instant it discovers them. The firewall relies on a set of rules to do this - for example, attempting to log in to a script admin area unsuccessfully a few times triggers one rule, sending a request to execute a specific file that could result in getting access to the Internet site triggers a different rule, and so on. ModSecurity is one of the best firewalls out there and it will secure even scripts that are not updated regularly as it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Very thorough information about every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are far more comprehensive than the standard logs provided by the Apache server, so you may later examine them and determine if you need to take additional measures so as to increase the protection of your script-driven websites.
ModSecurity in Shared Hosting
ModSecurity is provided with all shared hosting machines, so when you choose to host your Internet sites with our business, they'll be resistant to an array of attacks. The firewall is enabled as standard 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 website if necessary, or to switch on a detection mode, so all activity will be recorded, but the firewall shall not take any real action. You'll be able to view detailed logs from your Hepsia CP including the IP where the attack came from, what the attacker wished to do and how ModSecurity dealt with the threat. Since we take the protection of our clients' sites seriously, we employ a collection of commercial rules that we take from one of the top companies which maintain such rules. Our admins also add custom rules to make certain that your sites will be shielded from as many threats as possible.
