It would be a great security improvement to integrate CrowdSec to Plesk Panel.
Crowdsec is an open-source, lightweight software, detecting peers with aggressive behaviors to prevent them from accessing your systems.
Thanks for your feature request. We will definitely consider the possibility of its implementation if it receives a significant number of votes and is in demand.

Provide a choice to the Plesk user of either Fail2ban or CrowdSec, and add a UI to CrowdSec that provides similar ease of use to that already present for Fail2ban. Pre-configure which logs are scanned and allow choice of bouncers or adding new bouncers from different sources. While one can manually grope around to figure out how to replace all that Fail2ban currently does with CrowdSec, it would be so much better to have a "snap in" replacement.
John Cocula commented
In Plesk, Fail2ban has a UI to change its configuration, and if the same existed for CrowdSec, then it would become a commonly used component among Plesk users, who would find its advantages over Fail2ban very worthwhile. So if you were to implement an extension for CrowdSec, you would certainly find lots of adopters.
Crowdsec using iptables is not complete for most of servers. Is very common to use cloudflare and other third proxy servers to protect the sites. For those kind of servers, we need crowdsec nginx and apache bouncers.
Michiel Klaver commented
it isn't that difficult: install crowdsec + crowdsec-firewall-bouncer-iptables, and add the locations of the plesk configured logfiles to /etc/crowdsec/acquis.d/my_custom_plesk_config.yaml
That would be really great if crowdsec was involved!
Michael Neubauer commented
+1. crowdsec is very efficient to block non false-positives bad networks and is free! we already can setup the firewall bouncer in plesk, however will be much better to have nginx implemented, because most of the people use services like cloudflare, so crowdsec nginx bouncer needs to see the real ip.

Hi! I am head of community at CrowdSec. Thanks for the interest!
Unfortunately I (or anyone else on the team) knows terribly much about Plesk so I would appreciate it if someone here could elaborate on exactly what this integration between Plesk and Crowdsec would do. Can someone help?

I vote too
Fail2Ban do not work with a large number of domains. In our case over 2000. So one working alternative would be great.
Holger Schramm commented
this would be great, because it generates lower cpu load as fail2ban.
