Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
Very easy to use
Very easy to set up and use, and keeps an eye on all the important stuff all the time. Real time saver!
After finishing review all options and settings in plugin admin page, check logs and informations provided regarding activity on website where I use this plugin, I think that almost all features needed for security are provided, allthough some of paid features I would like to see them on free version.
Works so well I bought the paid version. Installed on all my sites about six months ago and it is so easy to use. Once setup, Wordfence does all the work and notifies me when there's a problem.
It is one of the few plugins that offers a complete tour upon installation. The most important features are free, which helps non-profit sites. The scan takes a while, so you will want to perform it when your site isn't busy.
the plugin works great
Being security conscious myself, I have been testing several plugins to improve the security of WordPress powered sites. As a matter of fact, I have several post that talks about this subject (ex: http://www.iblogzone.com/2013/06/safety-and-security-for-wordpress-blogs-infographic-and-more.html). Surprsingly, WordFence has got my attention and having scratched just but the surface, I can immediately tell that it is a "rising star".
I have it now installed on several of my sites it is working well. Soon enough, I will be replacing the other plugins I'm using for this one. Just looking into some "other" aspects, just to be 100%. if however you don't have any plugin yet installed, start with this one. Featured packed like no other free plugin I know of.
For the developers, thanks so much for what you do and for the contribution you provide for the community. Kudos...
My client's site was pharma hacked and after running the scan it found files that were modified. Thanks!
I wish I'd known about Wordfence a few months back, before my two blogs got hacked. I did all the cleanup by hand back then -- when now, Wordfence keeps the baddies away for me (and would do most of the cleanup work if one got through).
A fantastic utility, love the login blocker too!
What a great plug-in. Very easy to use and it looks like it does a comprehensive scan of the site. I am going to try install this on all my sites.
