ModSecurity is an efficient firewall for Apache web servers which is used to prevent attacks against web applications. It tracks the HTTP traffic to a certain website in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts the instant it identifies them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do that - as an illustration, trying to log in to a script administration area without success many times triggers one rule, sending a request to execute a certain file that may result in accessing the Internet site triggers another rule, etcetera. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls available on the market and it'll preserve even scripts which aren't updated often because it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Quite comprehensive data about every single intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are a lot more specific than the conventional logs generated by the Apache server, so you could later examine them and determine whether you need to take additional measures so as to increase the security of your script-driven sites.

ModSecurity in Cloud Hosting

ModSecurity is available on all cloud hosting web servers, so when you opt to host your websites with our business, they shall be shielded from a wide range of attacks. The firewall is enabled by default for all domains and subdomains, so there shall be nothing you will need to do on your end. You will be able to stop ModSecurity for any site if required, or to switch on a detection mode, so that all activity will be recorded, but the firewall will not take any real action. You will be able to view detailed logs using your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP address where the attack originated from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity handled the threat. Since we take the protection of our customers' websites very seriously, we use a group of commercial rules which we get from one of the best firms that maintain this type of rules. Our administrators also add custom rules to make certain that your websites shall be shielded from as many risks as possible.

ModSecurity in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server plans that we offer come with ModSecurity and given that the firewall is switched on by default, any Internet site which you set up under a domain or a subdomain will be protected straight away. An independent section in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with the semi-dedicated accounts is dedicated to ModSecurity and it'll permit you to stop and start the firewall for any Internet site or switch on a detection mode. With the last mentioned, ModSecurity shall not take any action, but it'll still identify possible attacks and shall keep all data inside a log as if it were fully active. The logs can be found inside the exact same section of the CP and they offer info about the IP where an attack originated from, what its nature was, what rule ModSecurity applies to detect and stop it, etc. The security rules we use on our machines are a mix of commercial ones from a security business and custom ones made by our system administrators. Consequently, we offer greater security for your web applications as we can shield them from attacks before security businesses release updates for new threats.

ModSecurity in VPS Servers

ModSecurity is provided with all Hepsia-based VPS servers that we offer and it'll be turned on automatically for any new domain or subdomain you include on the server. This way, any web application which you install shall be protected right away without doing anything manually on your end. The firewall may be managed through the section of the CP which has the same name. This is the place in whichyou could switch off ModSecurity or let its passive mode, so it will not take any action towards threats, but will still keep a thorough log. The recorded info is available within the same section as well and you'll be able to see what IPs any attacks originated from so that you stop them, what the nature of the attempted attacks was and based on what security rules ModSecurity responded. The rules we employ on our servers are a combination between commercial ones which we get from a security organization and custom ones that are added by our admins to improve the protection of any web apps hosted on our end.

ModSecurity in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to host your sites on a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, your web programs shall be secured straight away because ModSecurity is available with all Hepsia-based solutions. You will be able to control the firewall easily and if necessary, you will be able to turn it off or activate its passive mode when it'll only keep a log of what is taking place without taking any action to stop potential attacks. The logs which you can find in the same section of the Control Panel are extremely detailed and feature info about the attacker IP, what website and file were attacked and in what ways, what rule the firewall employed to stop the intrusion, and so on. This data shall allow you to take measures and increase the security of your sites even more. To be on the safe side, we employ not just commercial rules, but also custom-made ones which our staff add whenever they identify attacks which haven't yet been included inside the commercial pack.
