What are the advantages of Plesk?
Plesk covers both server and account security via both LDAP and Active Directory authentication out of the box. Additionally, Plesk offers Two Factor Authentication and has a built in WAF. Fail2Ban is software that monitors logs and has the ability to ban IPs if it detects multiple authentication failures. One click HTTPS, Let’s Encrypt SSLs and a CloudFlare backed product called ServerShield all work together to provide a robust suite of security tools for users.
Any control panel’s success is reliant not only on the security but also the ease of use. The continual iteration of Plesk’s UI means it is simple even for a beginner to use. Modern standards like full cross browser support, fully responsive design, high res iconography and retina support makes using Plesk simple, intuitive; and visually a pleasure.
