Chantilly, VA, August 24, 2017 â€” Atomicorp, the leader in secure Linux, today announced a free set of web application firewall (WAF) rules for ModSecurity.Â Atomicorpâ€™s founders have actively supported ModSecurity and written WAF rules for more than a decade. Atomic Secured WAF Rules number more than 14,000 and are the standard of quality in the industry today. The company is now making a substantial portion of the rules free to use and available for download from Atomicorpâ€™s website.
â€śModSecurity wonâ€™t do much without rules. The WAF rules for ModSecurity are the workhorses that identify and ward off cyber attacks. Atomicorp has a great deal of pride in the quality and timeliness of our WAF rules for ModSecurity. They have become the standard of protection for servers worldwide and come baked into leading software solutions such as Plesk. There have been free ModSecurity rules for some time, but end users continually complain about their low quality, high false positive rates, ineffectiveness and inability to keep up with modern threats. Atomicorp already has an affordable advanced set of rules and we believe that many people can benefit from our new free rules sets that protect organizations from common attacks,â€ť said Mike Shinn, Atomicorp CEO.
