WordPress Website Security Protection: Effective...Reliable...Easy to use
It's a great security plugin, and the support forum is great. The only issue is with the obsolete design, but I guess it's not that important with a security plugin.
Title says it all. They actually like what they do and really educate people and explain things.
For those that like to learn, there is an unbelievable amount of information in their forum.
Personally I've noticed that when a plugin author gets very popular they usually offer both free and premium versions of their plugin and tend to not pay that much attention to those that do not have the premium version. That's not the cause with BPS.
More than one million downloads and they provide great service.
I review my server logs constantly and between BPS has helped keep my sites secure.
I use BPS on practically all my websites that use Apache (BPS doesn't work under nginx), mostly as a preventive measure: none of them was ever hacked. But there is always a first time, and, to avoid that "first time", I make sure that BPS does it job. So far, so good!
BPS is a little tricky to configure. It has many options and requires several steps to complete the initial installation; after each upgrade, it requires a manual "reset" (easy to do) to make sure that all files are properly in place. It's also a bit tricky to make sure that it plays nicely with other plugins which might reconfigure .htaccess (like most cacheing plugins). Its interface departs completely from the usual WordPress UI standards and looks a bit anachronistic. Those are the only reasons for giving it just 4 out of 5 stars; at the core, what it does — protecting your website from intrusion — it does beautifully, and without any loss of performance.
As WordPress increases in popularity, and in spite of its already many built-in security features, hackers become increasingly more persistent in finding ways through WordPress's standard security. BPS is a welcome addition that will keep hackers away, as long as it is properly installed and maintained.
No trouble since first install!
This plugin makes each WordPress blogger life easier & safe.
Perfect plugin at all!
I was at my wits end when I purchased BPS Pro. Tried of the security issues I was having with my site and at a point to where I was going to throw in the towel and shift directions, I found that not only is the product a program that will bring peace of mind but also the support behind it is tremendous.
Extremely knowledgeable, actually cares about the consumer with great interaction. Highly recommend this product to anyone with a WordPress blog!
Great plugin, would recomend to all WP users. Pro-version is even better. Great support.
Before I used this plugin my sites were getting hacked regularly. Since installation I have had no problems what-so-ever. What a great plugin, with a little site upkeep and this plugin installed your site really does become bulletproof!!
I use this plugin on seven websites and over three different hosting providers. It is an excellent plugin and the htaccess firewall has helped me to stop unknown files and intrusions on more than one occasion. The developers are also very helpful and friendly.
