What is a Web Application Firewall?
A Web Application Firewall (WAF) is a security tool that monitors and filters incoming traffic to your website, with the goal of blocking malicious requests and protecting your application from attacks. WAFs work by analyzing HTTP traffic and identifying common attack patterns, such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS). HostGo partners with Sucuri Web Application Firewall to provide you with the best possible Firewall security for your site.
How We Protect Your Website from Hacking
Virtual Patching & Hardening
If a security patch is released, but you can’t update your site, it becomes an easy target for hackers. We constantly update patches and server rules.
Each site has its CMS, server software, and other technologies in the stack. We analyze all the traffic to block requests that don’t fit your web application’s profile.
Protect your website from emerging security threats. We correlate attack data across our network to better understand malicious behavior and keep your site secure.
All HTTP/HTTPS web traffic is inspected before reaching your server. With heuristic and signature-based techniques, we block malicious requests and attack patterns.
Add another layer of protection to sensitive pages by enabling the Protected Page feature. Add passwords, CAPTCHA, 2FA (via Google Authenticator), or IP allowlisting.
Bad Bot Blocking
When our systems detect a malicious bot or hacker tool trying to attack your site, it is blocked automatically. We protect your site from vulnerability exploitation attempts.
Allowlisted IP addresses ensure that only your team can access website administrative areas. Restrict your admin panels so malicious users don’t gain access.
Most website attacks come from only a handful of countries. Block all visitors from the top three attack countries with one click or choose which countries to block.
