ModSecurity is a plugin for Apache web servers that functions as a web app layer firewall. It's used to prevent attacks toward script-driven sites through the use of security rules that contain certain expressions. This way, the firewall can stop hacking and spamming attempts and protect even websites which are not updated often. As an example, numerous failed login attempts to a script administrative area or attempts to execute a certain file with the intention to get access to the script shall trigger certain rules, so ModSecurity shall stop these activities the instant it discovers them. The firewall is very efficient as it monitors the whole HTTP traffic to a site in real time without slowing it down, so it can prevent an attack before any harm is done. It additionally maintains an exceptionally detailed log of all attack attempts which contains more information than conventional Apache logs, so you could later examine the data and take additional measures to boost the security of your Internet sites if necessary.
