What is cPGuard Lite and how it differs from cPGuard complete suite

cPGuard Lite is the mini version of the cPGuard Web Security Suite and it contains basic functions to mitigate attacks and proactively block attack attempts. The modules included in cPGuard Lite are given below

  1. Scanner Engine:- Powered with the cPGuard automatic, scheduled, and manual scanner engine you will have the best malware scanner on your web server
  2. IPDB Firewall:- The IPDB Distributed Firewall is an industry-leading solution to share the knowledge of attack sources between servers and block bad traffic and attacks in the system firewall.
