Discover what ModSecurity is, how it works and just what it does in order to protect your sites and apps.
ModSecurity is a plugin for Apache web servers that functions as a web app layer firewall.

In this way, the firewall can stop hacking and spamming attempts and shield even sites that are not updated often. For instance, numerous failed login attempts to a script admin area or attempts to execute a specific file with the intention to get access to the script shall trigger certain rules, so ModSecurity will block out these activities the moment it detects them. The firewall is incredibly efficient since it screens the entire HTTP traffic to a website in real time without slowing it down, so it can easily stop an attack before any harm is done. It additionally keeps an exceptionally thorough log of all attack attempts which contains more info than conventional Apache logs, so you could later check out the data and take extra measures to increase the security of your sites if necessary.
