NimShield protects your clients and your entire portfolio of sites from cyber attacks, reputational damage, loss of earnings, and customer data loss.

You can rest assured that your servers and sites are secure, thanks to our unparalleled virus and cyber attack prevention software.

How does it work?


Our multi-layered security solution combats cyber attacks at any threat level. NimShield automatically detects and blocks potential threats before they can harm your website and servers.

It uses cutting-edge tools, machine learning technology, and a powerful global defence network.

Advanced security features. 


Web Application Firewall (WAF).

A WAF acts as a shield between your server and potential threats by monitoring and filtering incoming web traffic.

It inspects HTTP requests and applies a set of predefined rules to identify and block malicious activity. By using a WAF, you can protect against common web vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and remote file inclusion.

Additionally, WAFs provide real-time monitoring, threat intelligence, and can help mitigate distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.


Honeypots are decoy systems or applications deliberately designed to attract attackers and divert their attention from legitimate resources.

By setting up honeypots on your server, you can lure potential threats into a controlled environment, gathering valuable information about their tactics, techniques, and intentions.

This insight enables you to better understand emerging threats, enhance incident response capabilities, and proactively reinforce your security posture.

IP Blocking.

Blocking malicious IPs is a proactive measure to prevent access from known sources of malicious activity.

By maintaining a regularly updated blacklist of IP addresses associated with suspicious or malicious behaviour, you can prevent potential attackers from reaching your server.

This approach significantly reduces the risk of unauthorised access, brute-force attacks, and other malicious activities directed towards your clients' websites.

Malware Scanning.

Conducting routine malware scans on your server is vital for identifying and removing malicious code or infected files.

Malware can infiltrate your server through various vectors, including vulnerable software, compromised plugins, or malicious file uploads.

Regular scans using reputable antivirus or anti-malware tools help detect and eliminate threats promptly, minimising potential damage and ensuring the integrity of your clients' websites.

To add it to your package, go to your server dashboard Add-on section and choose Nimshield.
