Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
If you take your website seriously, then this is a required tool to have. Love it.
Simple interface combined with powerfull features, all you can ask for!
I've been using this plugin on our web site for the past few months. It's worked very well and caught some minor security issues for us. It's also blocked every brute-force attempt to take over our WordPress setup's administrative account.
This plugin is an example of how plugins should look like - excellent programming, fast, flexible, no bugs.
5/5 - my recommendation for everyone
This plugin is just superb at protecting my site. Thank you
I've used this plugin on a number of sites and I've never had security problems - it just runs in the background.
Speaking as an IT expert this tool can be a big advantage for WordPress sites created by users who just started to use wp. In its free version it is a very good all around tool to enhance your websites security, expecially when you already experienced various kinds of attacks. The Advanced user may want to look deeper in this tool! As well as go for the premium version which I can not make a statement about yet. Providing this general toolbox of security for FREE is a very nice move = 5 stars.
I've waited two weeks or so before rating Wordfence. This works - big time! I installed Wordfence after seeing over 1000 attempts (in a 2 hour period)to access my site.
It blocks while you sleep - peacefully...
And it's actually fun to watch (Live) as would be hackers attempt to use ADMIN as the user name.
Wordfence also works deep in the heart of your server looking for (and stopping) potential intruders.
I'm using the free version but will upgrade as a small way of saying thanks!
Wordfence is a workhorse and then some. Thank you Mark.
The service provided by this plugin lots more than I thought. Live traffic analysis, blocking IP facility, Vulnerability and malicious scanning facilities are just fabulous!
A must-have tool if you want to keep your site clean and safe.
Sometimes may become a bit heavy, having important peaks of server resources usage, but weighing pros and cons, the outcome is highly positive.
