Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
I've researched security plugins more than I care to admit before settling on WordFence. I really like this program and it just plain works! Getting the notifications I find invaluable!
In my opinion this is an essential plugin for any WP site.
Works well and easy to use!
Absolute must if you are managing several WP sites.
Wordfence works great out of the box and stays up to date on the latest wp vulnerabilities.
My hosting service installed this for me, in fact, installed it on all of their clients sites, because it's so darn good. When I get the email about the suspicious email about someone trying to log in -- I check out the IP address for kicks and grins. So far it's been the Phillipines and Russia. THANK YOU WORD FENCE!!!!!
Very timely eMails on Plug-In vulnerabilities and fixes. Been using free version for over a year on many sites.
Very impressed with the alerts I have been receiving. This morning I received an alert about a potential threat from one of my plugins and I was able to update it right away.
I installed this plugin on all of my WordPress websites after one of them was hacked. Almost immediately, I could see it protecting my websites from brute-force attacks. Easy to configure and very powerful. Recommended!
I especially like the blocking of unauthorized users and immediate notification of plugins with serious vulnerabilities.
