What is ModSecurity / OWASP CRS and why do you need it?

 
Worried about the security of your or your customers web applications and services? Anxious about vulnerabilities like log4shell? ModSecurity and the OWASP Core Rule Set (CRS) can help you out!
ModSecurity/CRS is an industry-standard, open source web application firewall that sits in front web applications and protects them against a broad range of security risks such as those described by the OWASP Top 10. With its flexibility and powerful rule based engine it can be an additional security layer in any hosting
setup.
 
Besides protecting against known attack vectors, it is also possible to deploy virtual patches rapidly if new vulnerabilities like log4shell emerge. This buys you or your customers valuable time to patch the affected systems.
