Discover what ModSecurity is, the way it works and what exactly it can do to shield your web sites and web applications.
ModSecurity is a highly effective web application layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the entire HTTP traffic to an Internet site without affecting its performance and in case it discovers an intrusion attempt, it prevents it. The firewall additionally keeps a more detailed log for the traffic than any web server does, so you'll be able to keep an eye on what's happening with your Internet sites better than if you rely merely on conventional logs. ModSecurity uses security rules based on which it helps prevent attacks. For example, it identifies whether someone is trying to log in to the admin area of a specific script multiple times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a specific command. In such instances these attempts trigger the corresponding rules and the firewall software blocks the attempts in real time, and then records in-depth information about them within its logs. ModSecurity is amongst the best software firewalls on the market and it can protect your web applications against many threats and vulnerabilities, especially in case you don’t update them or their plugins frequently.
