Very impressed
By , for WP 3.5.2

After having a very subtle Pharma hack I investigated a lot of security options and after loading up a site with multiple security plugins realized that this one does most of the functions (lockout, check file, IP block etc) by itself.
It seems to work very well, catches small edits I've made to some files as deviations for example. Really like the file comparison to repository feature.

Bluehost recommended it which is how I came across it, also noticed Bluehost adds a lot of security features automatically such as Nonce/salt passwords, database prefix, no ADMIN. Was on Godaddy who claimed my site was fine despite injection of spam into descriptions for bots.

Helping my clients staying secure
By , for WP 3.5.1

Wordfence is constantly checking my sites and my clients sites and keeping safe and secure. It is constantly updating and staying up to date on all the risks that pop up on pretty much a daily basis. I've been using wordfence for months and have had no problems at all with invasion of my sites. It just plain works.

It's easier to trouble shoot with Wordfence than going to my host provider and I love my host provider.

Great Features
By , for WP 3.7.2

Great simple to understand features. The login attempt lockout is great -- it has already locked out a few people trying to login from who knows where.
