Introduction

Site Security

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 Pro increases your websites protection by blocking 'Bat Bot' attempts - preventing your website from being taken down.

You can also:
* Change your database's table prefix
* Change your Super Administrator ID
* Password protect your 'administrator' folder
* 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

Along with the main DMC Firewall component, we also install an 'authentication' plugin that adds additional protection for all login modules (admin area and front end). This module prevents brute force login attempts by 'banning' any attempt before they get the chance to perform multiple login attempts.

'Site Scanner'
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.


I have had an issue of high bandwidth usage on a website that has been idle for a while and gets little real traffic but I need to start working it again and so I was trying to band the bot attacks with ip banning on the cPanel but keeping up with the bots was problematic. It seems like once they find you have a blogging component installed they attack attack attack and change their ips over and over.. I am hopeful this will solve this bandwidth problem I am having. Thank You.

DMC Super Login gives Super Administrators the ability to login to their site as a registered user using their own username and password combination. This comes in handy if a registered user can't see specific content that you think they should be able to see. You don't need to reset their password to login, you don't need to ask your user to reset/change their password so you can log in - all credentials are confirmed against your Super Administrator credentials.
