Please quote on implementing an intrusion detection and prevention for an opencart website. The requirements are as follows:

1. The website must be secure to protect customers against hackers, phishing and fraudulent attacks.
2. The website must be tamper proof.
3. The website must be tamper-evident. In other words, there must be an alert system and audit trail that can be used
by authorities to trace criminal attacks on the website.
4. An SMS alert must be sent to designated cellphone numbers in case of any malicious and/or criminal attack on the E-Commerce website.

The best monitoring trail system security development would be from engineers / manufacturers who has developed the specifications you require for cPanel or Plesk (host panels in other words) so to protect your entire domain instead of a developed module that would not entirely guarantee its protection throughout a single site. From cPanel WHM console, and with a good web hosting service plan, you can install additional extensions on your domain to monitor activities at all times.

Although, take note that realtime surveillance system may require great mount of disk space usage after a while.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

I agree this is a massive project that needs to be undertaken at the server level rather than as an OpenCart extension. If you'd like us to have a look at the security such as making sure your passwords are secure, SSL is installed and there aren't any obvious vulnerabilities, we could.

straightlite and paulfeakins,

Thanks for the info. I have sent PMs to both of you. Can you please include the following in your quote - general security (secure passwords, SSL, obvious vulnerabilities).

Website still needs to be developed. But will be very similar to
