Frequently Asked Questions

I have a small server. Will cPGuard make it slower ?

Do I need to uninstall other Antivirus solutions that are installed before installing cPGuard?

cPGuard has been found to have no compatibility issues with other antivirus solutions. You can run any other security add-ons along with cPGuard without any hassle.

cPGuard Standalone can install on any servers ?

cPGuard Standalone will work fine on all supported Linux OS with supported Web Servers. Installation is simple and you may need to input server configurations and other details during installation.

Will cPGuard install ModSecurity along with WAF ?

No, cPGuard does not install ModSecurity on your server. You need to install ModSecurity 2.9.4+ along with your Web Server

Do I need another firewall on the server even with cPGuard ?

cPGuard is a Web Security Suite and it does not monitor other system/application services. So it is recommended to install another firewall IPS/IDS [ CSF is recommended ] along with cPGuard.

It helped a lot! It seems to have found an old problem with it. Something permanently uploaded malicious codes to a cPanel account. cPguard lite found a webshell virus that no other antivirus found, including world famous imunifyAV+ and 360.Now it seems that this harmful attempt has abated.

cPGuard has been effective, far more than CXS, Pyxsoft and others we’ve used! Their ever-advancing protection and support has been the main reason for our satisfaction. Your protection for brute force is great and saved us from attacks that were overloading the server.
