ModSecurity

According to Forrester, ModSecurity is the most widely used WAF. It is open source, stable, documented, tenured, and it is fairly simple to install and work with. It also is integrated into numerous other WAF solutions. Simply put, your chances of encountering ModSecurity in the real world are high.

ModSecurity was created by Ivan Ristic, who simply (as he puts it) wanted a program to “...monitor what’s going on in my [Web] applications.” From there, it grew and Breach Security eventually acquired it. Although it has been commercialized, Breach Security pledges that it will keep ModSecurity open source and continue to add resources, which it has done to date.
