ModSecurity is a powerful web app layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the entire HTTP traffic to a site without affecting its overall performance and if it discovers an intrusion attempt, it prevents it. The firewall also maintains a more detailed log for the site visitors than any web server does, so you'll manage to monitor what is going on with your sites a lot better than if you rely only on conventional logs. ModSecurity employs security rules based on which it stops attacks. For example, it detects if someone is attempting to log in to the administration area of a particular script a number of times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a specific command. In these circumstances these attempts trigger the corresponding rules and the software blocks the attempts in real time, and then records comprehensive info about them within its logs. ModSecurity is one of the best software firewalls on the market and it can easily protect your web applications against many threats and vulnerabilities, particularly in case you don’t update them or their plugins frequently.
ModSecurity in Shared Hosting
ModSecurity is supplied with all shared hosting web servers, so when you decide to host your sites with our business, they shall be protected against a wide array of attacks. The firewall is turned on by default for all domains and subdomains, so there'll be nothing you will need to do on your end. You shall be able to stop ModSecurity for any Internet site if required, or to activate a detection mode, so all activity shall be recorded, but the firewall shall not take any real action. You'll be able to view comprehensive logs using your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP address where the attack came from, what the attacker wished to do and how ModSecurity handled the threat. Since we take the security of our customers' websites seriously, we use a group of commercial rules which we get from one of the top firms that maintain this sort of rules. Our administrators also include custom rules to ensure that your Internet sites will be shielded from as many threats as possible.
