Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
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.
Thanks to this absolute beauty of a plugin, I've finally been able to secure my hacked site. Thanks guys!
Ein absolutes MUSS-Plugin. Erst seit ich dieses Plugin installiert habe sehe ich was tatsächlich Sache ist.
Danke an den Entwickler
Runs great and is a handy addition to any site
Works exactly as advertised. The login blocker works great!
Thank you! Had an issue with a plugin hack attempt and you notified us immediately and we were able to remove the malware immediately. User friendly, great product, keep on evolving!
This software works just as it claims it will. It is unreal the number of wordpress hackers that are out there. My site was getting hammered with multiple invalid logins attempts from all around the globe before I installed this software. Now, the number of attempts have declined and I have peace of mind in knowing they are all being thwarted.
Must admit to having been totally shocked and apalled when I discovered that the company that developed my company's wordpress web site(and hosts the site!) didn't put any security software on it before delivering it to us! WordPress is such an easy application that a lot of amateur web development companies are peddling themselves as "web developers" but not performing to the standard.
