I'm just wondering if anyone has tested with WordFence: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/. I haven't tried WordFence, but it appears to offer a lot of monitoring, malware scans and such that BruteProtect doesn't. However, from what I can tell it's protection against login attempts is not contributing to a crowdsourced database like BruteProtect. I love that about BruteProtect, because it allows you to be protected from a lot of attackers before they ever attempt an attack. So in my mind BruteProtect + WordFence would be the ideal combination, but wonder if they'd just conflict?
