Imunify360 is security software installed on all of the servers at Texo.  It’s designed and developed by the amazing team at Cloudlinux.  Imunify360 uses herd immunity and a six-layer approach to provide our hosting customers with the highest level of security from all sorts of malicious attacks.  This includes DDOS attacks, Mod Security protection, malware scanning, website reputation management and a sophisticated firewall.  Imunify360 is designed to detect abnormal user behaviour including brute-force attacks which are becoming increasingly common, especially with WordPress sites.

WordPress is a big target for hackers and the number of attacks on WordPress websites on our network is in the thousands every day.  Most users are unaware and that’s because Imunify360 is in place to help protect their websites.  The six-layer approach includes:

  • Real-time malware scanning
  • Advanced firewall with greylisting
  • Intrusion detection
  • Server Kernel Patching
  • Website Reputation Management
  • Web Applications Sandboxing

Proactive Defense

Proactive Defense protects websites running PHP against zero-day attacks by blocking potentially malicious executions automatically and with zero latency. Proactive Defense is enabled by default. It adds an additional layer of security to your website by blocking PHP scripts that contain code that could hurt your website or visitors. Proactive Defence has three modes:

  • Disabled: This means that the Proactive Defense feature is not working and a system is unprotected.
    Data is logged in all modes except Disabled.
  • Log Only: This means that possible malicious activity is only logged, and no actions are performed (default mode).
  • Kill Mode: This is the highest level of protection. Scripts are terminated as soon as malicious activity is detected.
For security reasons, we highly recommend that Proactive Defense is left in Kill Mode. Please exercise extreme caution when disabling Proactive Defense.

To disable or enable Proactive Defense, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Control Panel.
  2. In the SECURITY section of the cPanel home screen, click Imunify360
  3. On the top toolbar, click Proactive Defence
  4. To disable Proactive Defence, click Disabled in the Mode Settings toolbar. This disables Proactive Defence on your site.
  5. To enable Proactive Defence, click Kill Mode in the Mode settings toolbar. This enables Proactive Defence on your site.
