Decent..
By , for WP 3.8

Decent plugin. It definitely covers a lot of ground so a newbie WP user may be overwhelmed but once I actually took some time to go through it all and experiment a little it becomes clear.
I have had some issues with lockouts and such but adjusting the settings will usually help this. Just make sure you test everything out before your site goes live but the same goes for all plugins right.

Thanks for the detailed time with this.

Very solid

The only real problem with it is that the learning curve for new users is too steep. The messages they're given on the dashboard do not correspond to the options that they see on the various settings screens.

Not for technophobes but it is an easy to use security solution if you have an intermediate knowledge of using wordpress

New Favorite WP Security Plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

I had previously used Bullet Proof Security. While I feel that it is also a good plugin, I have been impressed with BWPS because of the interface and the explanations of what each element does.

After screwing up a setting and basically crashing the site, I paid for the premium support as a last resort. I have been pleasantly surprised by the level of dedication and thoroughness by which the Bit51 tech team, (specifically Matt), have conducted themselves.

They are very straightforward, putting things in simple terms, and doing their best to go above and beyond with help and recommendations has sold me on this plugin.

Does what it says it does
By , for WP 3.6.1

An excellent product that does what it says it does.

It's really uncomfortable to criticize a gift, but I'll try: the only issue I have with this plugin is that renaming wp-content ALWAYS results in a dead site. I tried on different installations, on existing ones and on fresh ones. No luck.

Nevertheless, all other features are so valuable that I will recommend this plugin to anyone and will keep using it (or competing plugins of the same superb quality, if they ever get created) myself on every WP I'll ever manage.
