Great but ...
By ,

Five stars and I use "but" in my review? The problem is usage. If you're on shared hosting, it may be a good idea not to activate the file change checking. It can use up a great deal of cpu. The first time this happened I removed the plugin, but then I found it was just that specific item. Other items, such as excellent protection from brute force attacks, are extremely helpful. This is the best I've found, and I've tried a number of options, including collections of smaller plugins.

So five stars for a great application.

Extremely comprehensive
By , for WP 4.0eta4

This is one of those ~must have~ plugins.
Saves an immense amount of time to configure and maintain your .htaccess with an essential list of rules that have been consolidated over time. This alone is worth the install.
Black/White lists.
Automated Database Backups.
Bruteforce settings.
Hide your backend.
Change the login, register, 404 urls.
Core file protection
These are all basic fundamentals for any website.
Consider this step 1.

Очень хороший плагин. Большое спасибо тем разработчикам, которые приложили руки к его созданию. Молодцы ребята! Еще раз спасибо за плагин. В нем очень много функций, которые отлично решают многие проблемы, связанные с безопасностью сайтов на CMS WordPress.

I have been using this since Better WP security.
It simplifies all admin tasks on the security of the WP site.

Whilst other WP sites are under attack, this pluggin keeps mine safe and secure.

Thanks you guys :-)

Excellent free version, going pro soon
By ,

This is one of the best security plugin i've tried. Installed on a running 3.9.1 WP. Just crashed the website trying to change the wp-content name directory but there were a warning so this is all my fault. (If your WP is already running, make these changes manually)
Very nice free version, no ad, no popup, no warning everywhere. I'll certainly go pro at work soon.

Lo he probado y tiene mucho más de lo que esperaba. Espectacular y bien documentado.

Ojalá presentara su versión en español para el resto del mundo.
