1&1 is serious about having the best dedicated and VPS server offers in the market, so it comes as no surprise to us that 1&1 is Parallels global launch partner for our release of Plesk 12. Combined with the power and performance of 1&1’s new server line-up, Plesk 12 offers the peace of mind that your server is fully protected from a range of threats and malicious attacks.
Plesk 12 adds unmatched security features to the infrastructure and website management experience that you already know and trust. On top of existing protection available from your server firewall, we’ve fully integrated Fail2ban – a service that scans your log files and bans IP addresses with suspicious activity – and Mod_Security – web application firewall governed by specialized rulesets. We even partnered with industry leader, Atomicorp, to give you the most trusted Mod_Security rules for free. We have these new security features set to secure defaults that will protect your servers out-of-the-box. For more advanced users, you can choose to fully configure your Fail2ban settings and edit Mod_Security rules from the Plesk UI and customize them to your specific needs.
