Feature 1: Prepared for future attacks

We constantly collect the latest information of vulnerability attacks and update our blacklist in an effort to prepare for the future attacks.

Feature 2: Accurate blacklist
We are checking out not only official institutions like CERT, but also non-official information sources such as hacker sites to get information of vulnerability attacks on 24/7 basis. It enables us to make our blacklist highly accurate, and provide it to our customers in an expeditious way.

Feature 3: Easy installation
SiteShell is designed to easily fit into existing Web systems or Web applications without any modification. Just install SiteShell to your Web server machine. After Installation, you can check how it affects your applications by operating SiteShell in test mode. In this mode, SiteShell does not actually block detected attacks but records them into the audit log.

Feature 4: Customizable Blacklist
SiteShell’s blacklist is highly flexible and thus enables users to adjust security level as they like.
