Maintaining ModSecurity for Apache or Nginx can be time consuming, frustrating, and error-prone. As a result, some people may stop using ModSecurity altogether and leave their WordPress sites exposed to attacks.
HeatShield brings ModSecurity to WordPress in the form of a WordPress plugin. The plugin is easy to install and all rule management is done through HeatShield's central management interface. This way, you can view and manage firewalls across all of your WordPress sites and servers in one place without any manual rule editing.
If you need ModSecurity but your time is too valuable to spend becoming a ModSecurity and web server configuration expert, HeatShield for WordPress is for you.
