Proactive defense for sophisticated attacks

Proactive defense for sophisticated attacks

Sophisticated malware needs sophisticated solutions to combat it. With web security, prevention is always the best defense. Imunify360 detects known attacks with its built-in Malware Scanner. Now, a new feature, Proactive Defense, takes protection to a whole new level.

Imunify360 blocks attacks with a combination of technologies: signature matching, real-time behaviour analysis, and herd immunity, informed by insights collected from servers around the globe. It is invaluable to web server owners, helping them adapt their security efforts to changing malware threats without the need to swap one antivirus solution for another.

Imunify360 is an all-inclusive and comprehensive security solution. It helps protect Linux-based web servers from many forms of attack or exploit. Its new Proactive Defense feature adds another formidable fortification layer to your systems and services.

Imunify360 uses a variety of techniques to protect against attacks:

  • Detection of vulnerable files with the Malware Scanner

  • Unknown -- zero-day -- attacks prevention with script blocking of Proactive Defense (new!)

  • Protection against remote exploits with IDS/IPS and WAF

  • Protection against ‘brute force’ attacks, DoS attacks, and port scans with the Advanced Firewall

  • Combatting of critical vulnerabilities such as Meltdown and Spectre with automated and rebootless kernel security updates (KernelCare is included with Imunify360)

And yet there is more. With CloudLinux Backup for Imunify360, you can restore your server to a previous clean state in the event of a ransomware or virus attack.

New breeds of compromise, for example, the installation of crypto-mining malware, can be harder to detect. These run quietly in the background with low resource usage and are extremely hard to detect, unless you are proactively defending your servers.

Imunify360's new Proactive Defense implements a pre-emptive and proactive approach to security, turning a multi-layer solution into a rock-solid one. You can install it in minutes and start defending your customers immediately.

To learn more about how it works, and why it stops almost all malware, watch this webinar recording. You can also try Imunify360 free for 30 days here.

Hello,

I'm currently using CSF Firewall with OWASP Modsecurity ruleset V3. Question is, can I use Imunify360 along with these? Or if I install Imunify360 these won't be needed anymore? Thanks.

Hi Ivan,

CSF is OK - Imunify360 can work alongside with it. However, it is meant to be drop-in replacement for CSF. We advise to remove all ModSecurity rulesets prior to Imunify360 installation because if the install script detects any existing active rulesets it installs only minimal Imunify360 set of rules.

Hi @Alexandre,
Such important information should have been included in the Imunify360 documentation somehow. I suppose many people [including myself] installed Imunify360 while ModSecurity rulesets had already been configured and they weren't removed. For instance I was using COMODO WAF +CSF+LMD+ClamAV then when Imunify360 went into production I just added. I think Imunify should be made to install all important rulesets, perhaps with warnings about other rulesets which need to be removed. The same way cPHulk is disabled automatically by Imunify. Proper guidelines are needed in this so that we get the best out of Imunify360.

Hi Paul,

Sure thing - we will add this info to the docs soon. We do not remove any rulesets automatically because some customers have their own rulesets with custom rules
