DMC Firewall aids in the protection of a Joomla powered website. By default Joomla gives a 403 Forbidden message but allows the 'hacker' to keep trying multiple times - with DMC Firewall we block these attempts and ban the IP address of the 'hacker' within the websites '.htaccess' or 'web.config' file.
DMC Firewall Core also includes a number of 'Bad Bots' that get banned from accessing your website, preventing your website from being taken down.
You can also:
* Perform a Health Check on your website and server
* Easily take a backup from within the control panel area (requires Akeeba Backup)
* Receive 'break-down' emails listing what DMC Firewall has banned over a set period of time
Before the content of your website is output to the visitors browser, this plugin scans through the HTML looking for any 'bad content' (cialis, viagra, payday loans etc). If any bad content is found, an email is sent to the web-master informing them of the page that the bad content was found on so they can take appropriate action where necessary.
