ModSecurity is a potent web app layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the entire HTTP traffic to a site without affecting its operation and when it identifies an intrusion attempt, it prevents it. The firewall additionally maintains a more thorough log for the website visitors than any server does, so you shall manage to keep track of what is happening with your websites much better than if you rely simply on conventional logs. ModSecurity employs security rules based on which it helps prevent attacks. For instance, it recognizes whether somebody is attempting to log in to the administrator area of a certain script a number of times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a certain command. In such cases these attempts trigger the corresponding rules and the software blocks the attempts right away, and then records detailed information about them within its logs. ModSecurity is amongst the best software firewalls available and it can protect your web apps against many threats and vulnerabilities, especially in case you don’t update them or their plugins frequently.
