Comodo Releases Free ModSecurity Rules for LiteSpeed Web Servers. Millions protected by the innovation of New Jersey Tech Firms

Clifton, NJ, March 26, 2014 – Comodo, a leading Certificate Authority and Internet security organization, announced today the initial release of its free Comodo ModSecurity Rules for LiteSpeed Web Server. ModSecurity rules are used by the popular ModSecurity Apache web server plug-in to provide advanced network filtering, security and intrusion protection.

Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and Chief Security Architect pointed to this release as an example of the global leadership of New Jersey technology companies. “It is great to see such innovation coming out of New Jersey to protect millions of websites and tens of millions of end users worldwide“, Melih said. “Comodo and LiteSpeed share a common commitment to non-stop innovation, and are the very embodiment of what we call ‘Jersey Strong.’

LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is a high-performance Apache drop-in replacement developed by New Jersey based LiteSpeed Technologies. Web hosts use LSWS to speed up websites and save on hardware costs. LSWS is the 4th most popular web server on the internet and the #1 commercial web server.

Comodo provides free ModSecurity rules for Web Application Firewalls on Apache/Linux, LiteSpeed and Nginx web servers through an easy to use web interface. According to Melih “We provide the only free ModSecurity rules that come from a company with an internationally renowned antivirus lab. We see threats at every level worldwide and are dedicated to turning that knowledge into security solutions for our customers.”

Comodo uniquely allows users to categorize the rules. This means you only run rules you need, rather than waste valuable CPU cycles looking through unnecessary rules and performance is maximized.
