ModSecurity is a highly effective firewall for Apache web servers which is used to stop attacks towards web apps. It keeps track of the HTTP traffic to a particular website in real time and blocks any intrusion attempts the instant it detects them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do this - as an example, trying to log in to a script admin area unsuccessfully many times activates one rule, sending a request to execute a certain file which may result in gaining access to the site triggers a different rule, and so forth. ModSecurity is one of the best firewalls available and it will secure even scripts which aren't updated on a regular basis as it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Incredibly comprehensive data about every single intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are considerably more detailed 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 increase the security of your script-driven Internet sites.

ModSecurity in Cloud Hosting

ModSecurity is supplied with all cloud hosting machines, so if you opt to host your sites with our company, they shall be resistant to a wide array of attacks. The firewall is turned on by default for all domains and subdomains, so there'll be nothing you'll need to do on your end. You shall be able to stop ModSecurity for any Internet site if necessary, or to switch on a detection mode, so that all activity will be recorded, but the firewall shall not take any real action. You shall be able to view detailed logs from your Hepsia Control Panel 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 safety of our clients' sites seriously, we employ a collection of commercial rules that we get from one of the best firms that maintain this kind of rules. Our admins also include custom rules to make certain that your websites will be resistant to as many risks as possible.

ModSecurity in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We have integrated ModSecurity by default inside all semi-dedicated hosting packages, so your web applications shall be protected whenever you install them under any domain or subdomain. The Hepsia CP which comes with the semi-dedicated accounts will permit you to switch on or disable the firewall for any site with a click. You will also have the ability to switch on a passive detection mode in which ModSecurity shall maintain a log of potential attacks without actually preventing them. The comprehensive logs contain the nature of the attack and what ModSecurity response this attack triggered, where it originated from, etc. The list of rules that we employ is frequently updated as to match any new risks that could appear on the Internet and it comes with both commercial rules that we get from a security firm and custom-written ones that our admins add in case they find a threat that is not present inside the commercial list yet.

ModSecurity in VPS Hosting

All virtual private servers that are offered with the Hepsia Control Panel include ModSecurity. The firewall is set up and switched on by default for all domains which are hosted on the server, so there won't be anything special that you will have to do to protect your sites. It'll take you just a mouse click to stop ModSecurity if necessary or to turn on its passive mode so that it records what goes on without taking any measures to stop intrusions. You will be able to see the logs generated in passive or active mode through the corresponding section of Hepsia and learn more about the type of the attack, where it originated from, what rule the firewall employed to deal with it, and so forth. We use a mixture of commercial and custom rules in order to ensure that ModSecurity shall prevent as many threats as possible, hence improving the security of your web programs as much as possible.

ModSecurity in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites on a dedicated server with the Hepsia CP, your web programs shall be protected immediately because ModSecurity is available with all Hepsia-based solutions. You'll be able to control the firewall without difficulty and if necessary, you shall be able to turn it off or switch on its passive mode when it will only keep a log of what is happening without taking any action to prevent possible attacks. The logs that you'll find inside the exact same section of the Control Panel are quite detailed and contain information about the attacker IP address, what website and file were attacked and in what ways, what rule the firewall used to stop the intrusion, and so forth. This information will permit you to take measures and improve the protection of your websites even more. To be on the safe side, we employ not just commercial rules, but also custom-made ones that our staff add when they identify attacks which have not yet been included inside the commercial pack.
