How to Protect Servers from Malware Attacks

Software vulnerabilities are constantly being exploited and monetized, and organized crime now consist of large development teams with substantial budgets. It has become a profitable industry that has seen rapid growth, fueled by ransomware schemes and crypto mining exploits, all without dire consequences. Malware is used by attackers to steal data, bypass access controls, remotely execute files, modify system configurations, and much more.

Web applications, such as WordPress and its plugins, are especially appealing to attackers as they are widely used and easily exploited, but Imunify360 can protect those applications against both known and unknown malware, all in real time.

Imunify360 now delivers the optimal anti-malware solution. It combats viruses, adware, spyware, Trojans, and worms. The combination of Proactive Defense, Malware Scanning, and WAF in Imunify360 ensures that all incoming and existing data and traffic gets scanned for malware and safely blocked or removed once detected. Unlike the malware scanner that continually scans and rescans files to recognize already infected ones based on signatures, Proactive Defense analyzes scripts and recognizes dangerous behaviors in them in real time. It stops malware, both new and old, from running on your servers in the first place.

Imunify360 can help web server owners adapt their security efforts according to changing malware patterns without resorting to anti-virus solution replacements. It is an all-inclusive, comprehensive security solution that helps protect Linux web servers against most types of exploits. According to Patrick William of RACK911 Labs, who has extensively tested Imunify360 with Proactive Defense, “it will stop almost all malware in real-time”. He also stated that “there is nothing else on the market that offers such a high level of security”.

With Imunify360, you can stop malware from penetrating your servers.
