As said, very effective, and very complete.
However, a simpler HMI would be nice for beginners.

Essential Site Security Plugin
By , for WP 3.8

This is probably the best plugin ever for any wordpress site. I have run several WP sites for a few years with this plugin and it works flawlessly, i think it is so good that it should come as standard with all wordpress installs. It is very easy to setup and use no site should be without it, nothing will provide 100% protection but this plugin is a great start to securing your data and even if your site does get breached their is a good chance you will know about it ASAP thanks to this plugins file monitoring features.

I also use to protect some of my none wordpress sites by installing it in the root directory so it will check for modified files in any of the directory's on my server plus the blacklisted IP`s also get blocked.

Keep up the great work and thank you for the many hours you have put into this plugin.
All The Best

Ps maybe you could set up something where people could post their blacklisted IP`s or automatically submit them to a public Database so people can use it to pre block possible attackers. :)

Safety first
By , for WP 3.8

I think it should be integrated in future wordpress releases as essential part of it. Waiting for this event, I'm going to build a monument to the author.

This renames a folder and login routes that I needed renaming and this adds a nice layer of security to my websites over all - great plugin thank you!

Lots of useful features to make the site more secure like the ability to log 404s and file changes.
