ModSecurity is a plugin for Apache web servers which functions as a web application layer firewall. It's employed to prevent attacks toward script-driven sites by using security rules which contain certain expressions. That way, the firewall can block hacking and spamming attempts and shield even Internet sites which are not updated on a regular basis. As an example, a number of failed login attempts to a script admin area or attempts to execute a certain file with the intention to get access to the script will trigger particular rules, so ModSecurity shall block out these activities the second it discovers them. The firewall is incredibly efficient since it monitors the entire HTTP traffic to a site in real time without slowing it down, so it could prevent an attack before any damage 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 analyze the data and take additional measures to increase the security of your websites if necessary.
