Secure Your Web Applications With ModSecurity Rules and WAF From Atomicorp

A web application firewall (WAF) capability provides defense of websites and web applications from hackers and malware by filtering and monitoring HTTP traffic between a web app and the Internet. The WAF protects against a variety of application layer attacks including credential theft, code injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), cookie poisoning, CSRF, SQL injection, DoS, ransomware, and more. ModSecurity, sometimes referred to as ModSec, is an open-source web security framework that when combined with rules allows users to build WAFs for free.

Atomicorp offers four solutions for your ModSecurity and WAF needs ranging from open source ModSecurity Free ModSecurity Rules, our robust commericial version of rules and our commercial turnkey WAF virtual appliance.

Trustwave Discontinues ModSecurity Support

Trustwave announced in August 2021 that it would no longer be supporting ModSecurity. Trustwave also set a date for end-of-support for its ModSecurity rule set. The move leaves Atomicorp as the primary commercial ModSecurity rules provider in the industry. Atomicorp will continue its 20-year commitment to the still quite active ModSec user community.

“We’ve been with ModSecurity the longest – since the very beginning – and we are committed to continue to enthusiastically support it for the foreseeable future. We are more than happy to support Trustwave ModSecurity users, whether they wish to keep the Trustwave rules or upgrade to an Atomicorp commercial rules feed.” — Michael Shinn, the founder and CEO of Atomicorp.
