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.

Security for dummies
By , for WP 3.6.1

Overall the program has a lot of vital security fixes and changes that you need multiple plugins elsewhere to get. MOST of the changes are pretty simple and straight forward. A word to the wise to those new at this though, INSTALL TO A FRESH WORDPRESS INSTALL ESPECIALLY WHEN USING WORDPRESS MU ENABLED and IT REALLY REALLY HELPS IF YOUR SSL CERTS ARE ALREADY INSTALLED (GO TRUSTED/VERIFIED CERTS/KEY trust me) and functioning before install. I saw enough good that even with my nightmare of an install experience I am going to try again, THE RIGHT WAY. lol. I would recommend to the developer to additionally include a change removal tool to undo changes simply (if that's even possible) for those who aren't so savvy especially as backups don't always work as expected. Read the directions, do after a fresh install and make sure certs/key is installed first and I think you will love it. (4 stars is for ease of install for the vapid amount of new users in the WordPress landscape)

Very extensive security set. Seems to just run without needing a lot of attention.
