Website Firewall

Special Imageway Web Hosting feature

Website Firewall

Our unique website hosting includes a optimized web application firewall (WAF) with all our web hosting accounts. The rules we use are provided by Atomicorp which developed the first ModSecurity rule set and maintains the largest number of active WAF rules. Atomic ModSecurity Rules are the most comprehensive WAF rule set in the industry, have the highest level of quality, and are the most optimized rule set to keep things running fast.

When a Firewall Rule is triggered, the web browser of the person accessing your website will get a 403 Error. The firewall rules can cause false positives, but we find that having a website firewall is essential in todays Internet environment, so the benefit outweighs the risk. If you notice this 403 error on a page that is valid, please contact us so that we might correct the issue in our firewall rules.

The Imageway Website Firewall Protects Against:

  • SQL injection
  • Cross-site scripting
  • Cross-site request forgery
  • Encoding abuse
  • Protocol abuse
  • Unicode and UTF-8 attacks
  • SHTTP smuggling
  • Path recursion
  • Web spam
  • Shells
  • Spam tools
  • Denial of Service
  • Malicious iFrames
  • Mailers
  • and much more
  • Lastly, we have special Atomicorp virus scanner rules which scan your website files daily looking for any website files that might have gotten hacked. If we find any hacked website files contained within your website, we will reach out to you to resolve the issue.

    The Imageway website firewall feature is special because it provides server side protection to your website. This feature is included with all our web hosting packages. Sign-up today to experience this feature for yourself. For general questions please contact us by one of the means available on our contact page, and a Imageway representative will contact you.

    Imageway Digital Media is thankful to be given the opportunity to service your business needs, and will provide you with the highest quality service possible.
