Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
Supergreat plugin that finds and protects hacked WP installations. It can also throttle botnets brute force attacks and block IP:s that has tried to login to the site.
Recommend it to everyone even if you haven't experienced a hacked site (yet). Well worth the money.
Very helpful mails from the mailing-list.
Wordfence is a great plugin and I choose to use it with every install I implement for clients. The plugin has solid support, works as it should and the developers keep their plugin users up to date with improvements and other threats to my sites.
Very nice plugin, which offers useful options.

Been using this plugin for a while now. It's a decent firewall for identifying visitors and possible malicious drive-bys, invalid login attempts by hackers, etc. Paired with Cloudflare, it does a pretty admirable job of securing web sites. Though it has its quirks and some places it could be improved... Overall, pretty happy with it. More feature-rich than many other similar firewalls. Certainly worth looking into if you don't have any site security plugin(s).
Still triying WP world, but this plugin works and help you a lot. Thanks
Only scratched the surface of functionality and it may take months or longer just to fully get to a point of appreciating and understanding all that it can do. A massive and apparently thorough development effort. amazing all of this is free...
can't wait to check out the professional version as well!
In a fast changing web it is good to know that Wordfence is on your side. The warning emails allow you to take action to correct a security flaw. It is one of the very few "must have" plugins for all installations in my view.
I install this plugin on every site I run now. It is simple, easy to configure and use. And it works.
I get notifications of pending security problems as well as checks on each of my sites and the plugins they run.
Just remember that you still need to be vigilant in protecting your sites. WordFence is a great tool to help you do that.
