ModSecurity is a powerful firewall for Apache web servers that is used to prevent attacks towards web applications. It keeps track of the HTTP traffic to a specific site in real time and blocks any intrusion attempts the moment it identifies them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do that - as an illustration, attempting to log in to a script administrator area unsuccessfully many times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a specific file that may result in gaining access to the Internet site triggers another rule, etcetera. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls around and it will secure even scripts which aren't updated often since it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Quite detailed info about each and every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are a lot more comprehensive than the regular logs created by the Apache server, so you may later take a look at them and determine if you need to take more measures in order to increase the safety of your script-driven websites.

ModSecurity is supplied with all shared hosting web servers, so when you opt to host your websites with our firm, they'll be resistant to a wide array of attacks. The firewall is turned on as standard for all domains and subdomains, so there will be nothing you will have to do on your end. You shall be able to stop ModSecurity for any website if necessary, or to activate a detection mode, so all activity will be recorded, but the firewall won't take any real action. You shall be able to view comprehensive logs using your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP where the attack originated from, what the attacker wished to do and how ModSecurity addressed the threat. As we take the protection of our customers' Internet sites seriously, we use a selection of commercial rules that we take from one of the top companies which maintain this sort of rules. Our admins also add custom rules to make certain that your Internet sites shall be protected against as many risks as possible.
