ModSecurity is an efficient firewall for Apache web servers which is used to stop attacks against web applications. It monitors the HTTP traffic to a particular website in real time and blocks any intrusion attempts the moment it discovers them. The firewall relies on a set of rules to accomplish that - for example, attempting to log in to a script admin area unsuccessfully a few times activates one rule, sending a request to execute a certain file which may result in accessing the Internet site triggers another rule, and so on. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls out there and it will preserve even scripts which aren't updated regularly as it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Very thorough information about every single intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are a lot more specific than the standard logs provided by the Apache server, so you could later take a look at them and decide whether you need to take additional measures in order to boost the safety of your script-driven websites.
ModSecurity in Cloud Web Hosting
We provide ModSecurity with all cloud web hosting plans, so your Internet applications shall be resistant to malicious attacks. The firewall is activated as standard for all domains and subdomains, but if you'd like, you will be able to stop it through the respective section of your Hepsia CP. You could also activate a detection mode, so ModSecurity will keep a log as intended, but shall not take any action. The logs which you shall discover in Hepsia are incredibly detailed and offer data about the nature of any attack, when it happened and from what IP address, the firewall rule that was triggered, and so on. We use a range of commercial rules that are constantly updated, but sometimes our administrators add custom rules as well so as to better protect the Internet sites hosted on our servers.
