Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
I first installed the free version and quickly discovered that I could block traffic from all countries that I'm not interested in such as China or Turkey.
Case in point: By looking at the Live Traffic feature of Wordfence, I saw that I was getting a lot of "rogue" traffic from China. After I upgraded to the paid version of the plugin, I was able to use Country Blocking feature and set China (among others) as blocked.
Now I don't see any more traffic from China!
I've never had an issue of any sort with this plug-in. It works, and it works well. It's easy to use and it gets the job done quickly. The best of many, many security-related plug-ins I've used, by far.
Limiter en gratuit mais efficace en payant!...
Does it all. Excellent plug in for security.
The free version has tons of useful functionality. If you have a site that gets a lot of hacker activity, the premium version is well worth the money spent in exchange for the time saving feature to block by country.
This plugin-works great. It was recommended to me through dzone as a must WP plug-in and I see why they would say that. There is a one star rating that says this makes your site insecure, it does not, it is highly recommended by developers. There is some talk about it giving too many red flags. (From someone who seems to have been blacklisted by Google for being spammy.) I've only got one from a legitimately bad plugin. Does it slow down your site? Nope! While in the middle of a scan I did a speed test, my site slowed down by 1/10th of a second.
This is really well built and great to have!
Excelent pluggin that I personally use on every wordpress I host on my private servers. It includes many free features for free and a reasonable price for premium. Excellence in security and very helpful
Good tour for getting started. You don't scratch your head and ask where to start, like in some plugins. I like not having to change any settings and let it run on its own.
Working great! This developer deserves recognition for his hard work and thoroughness.
