Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
I have been using this plugin for about 6 months. Blocks bad traffic, like China search engines that eat up bandwidth. One time block and they can't get back on your site!
Great plugin, may save you from hackers.
Highly recommend this for wordpress protection, it has saved me a lifetime of fixes.
The plugin itself is great. Add to that the emails that the plugin author sends out to its users when he discovers new attack vectors or unusual activity on WP sites, and WordFence becomes the most useful plugin I know of to help protect my sites.
There seems to have been an increase in the number of brute force attacks recently. And while it's a pain getting all the email notifications of failed logins and subsequent lockouts of those morons trying to break into my sites, I don't have worries about them succeeding.
If you don't have it installed, get 'er done today.
I had a bit of malware on my site that was placing published posts into the trash. It was also deleting plugins, it got rid of WP Touch and I lost a lot of mobile traffic.
I installed Wordfence and it found the malware and deleted it. It didn't restore my site. But it absolutely did its job. It stopped someone from hurting my website.
I give this a ratiing of: ALL GUNS BLAZING
I cannot think of another item that could be added to the security of any site
after several conflict problems with another security plugin, I removed it on the advice of my ISP. I did not want to leave my site exposed to all manner of attack. I installed Wordfence today and I was immediately impressed with its simple interface and powerful features.
I hope never to need any support from the developer but seeing the quality of the software plugin and how easy it is to use, even for this non-techie, I am impressed and award it five stars. Thank you developers!
This plugin does a great job. With a lot of options, you must take a look at wordfence scan and wordfence live traffic. They are very easy to use and are powerfull options.
I have been using Wordfence for a while after a period of problems. It reports in real time who or what is visiting your site and allows selectively blocking a user or IP range from accessing the site. When I faced a seeming conflict with another plugin the Wordfence team and the other developer (Jetpack) worked on the problem. Mark identified the problem and pointed me in the direction of a fix, which was as simple as adding a line to WordPress configuration file. I am a happy user, they treated my question with priority although I was, and am a non paying user. This is how everything should work.
no more words, this is just the best
