Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
Wordfence has helped me. Not only did it detect an authorised access attempt, but they emailed me to alert me that my name was on the list of passwords stolen in the recent Adobe security leak, so I knew that I needed to change my password. Great work.
Does everything I need, right out of the box.
The email updates are wonderful. Saves a lot of time.
Has already locked out a brute-force hacker and alerted me!
...great support and fast updates when WP issues a new update.
If only EVERY plugin was created and maintained to this high standard.
Great job, guys. Perhaps the first 5 star review I've ever given.
Im try almost all defence plugins.
Some make my site slow our as very armful for a simply user.
Others as very complicated.
Wordfence was intuitive, and with quickly settings.
Tanks team of word fence.
Be careful with this plugin. We had it (latest version 3.8.8) installed on three different sites with firewall disabled and 100% of our visitors were blocked out for days. It won't lock you out if you're logged in as admin. So, to test fully, log completely out of your admin and delete your cookies and cache. Then try it your front end. If you get the access limited 503 error then you're being blocked and potentially all of your traffic as well. I've contacted support but when they found out I was using the free version they stopped responding to my emails so not sure if they're going to address it or not but they do know about it.
Greatly appreciate having this tool!
Scanned and found where was hiding the malicious code. Thanks Wordfence I cleaned my site.
