Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
This is very nice plugin. Clean, fast, and secure!
I've been nose down in WordPress security for the past few weeks and coming across this plugin was an absolute jem! It works out of the box and provides many fantastic features. The scanning and restoring is amazing and it even takes into consideration using DNS through CloudFlare.
Love this! Way better than any other security plugin I've come across and tested.
After a bit of a rough initial install, the plug-in works great. I needed to update the version of PHP I was running on my server to the very latest before a bad initialization call error could be cleared up. Now with that behind me, this is an awesome plugin. I haven't notice any degredation in response the response time for my site (I get several hundred visitors a day that pull many, many pages) so for now I'm impressed.
I'm very pleased with this cool plugin. Not sure if the login lockdown is actually working well, compared to the high sensitivity of other plugins. All in all, is a pleasure to know it is handling the security.
Good job, boys!
A relative newcomer to the WordPress world (well the last year really) and as a business it is important to me that I have standard plugins that I can use and recommend to my customers, as they just work, and I can relax. WordFence Security is one of the those plugins, that I just cannot see why a user would not have it loaded on their WordPress installation. Its simple to set-up, even with the free version there are a wealth of options and if you do decide to upgrade to the premium version, other goodies are there for use. If you host a WordPress site yourself or, as in my case, for customer, do yourself a favour and install this plugin. You will not be disappointed.
Resilient Business Systems
The first thing to do after installing WordPress is set up your site's security. And this plugin does some great things to secure your website.
I am a novice blogger and this plug-in saved my site from some malicious activity. It detected the sources and allowed me to shut down all unauthorized activity within minutes of activating it. It is very easy to set up and I am very grateful to have found it.
I have now upgraded to Premium and it is well worth the money!
This is a must have plugin! I am amazed at the number of login attempts I see and the ease with which I can manage bad behavior!
The free version is really great but the paid version is down right amazing!
My initial review was titled:
Good but I can not say great ... yet
I can not give it the final star because my first experience showed it misses some stuff.
It caught 3 out of 38 injections on the first run on an infected site.
That said - the ability to see dif on changed files is awesome!
I love the IP logging and the ability to permanently block bad guys.
Easy to set up and run!
Price seems really reasonable.
I am on the very of getting a 10 site license but am a wee bit leary as response to support requests in the forums seems pretty backed up at the moment.
I've been running this for well over a year now and it's by far the easiest to use and most thorough in the results it achieves.
Should be standard on every blog.... a good guard in this world with hacking pirates.
Everytime I look at the logfiles I am happy with this plugin.
