Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
BPS & Better WP Security do a good job, but Wordfence is definately the best.
After having a very subtle Pharma hack I investigated a lot of security options and after loading up a site with multiple security plugins realized that this one does most of the functions (lockout, check file, IP block etc) by itself.
It seems to work very well, catches small edits I've made to some files as deviations for example. Really like the file comparison to repository feature.
Bluehost recommended it which is how I came across it, also noticed Bluehost adds a lot of security features automatically such as Nonce/salt passwords, database prefix, no ADMIN. Was on Godaddy who claimed my site was fine despite injection of spam into descriptions for bots.
Wordfence is constantly checking my sites and my clients sites and keeping safe and secure. It is constantly updating and staying up to date on all the risks that pop up on pretty much a daily basis. I've been using wordfence for months and have had no problems at all with invasion of my sites. It just plain works.
Been using for a while and everything perfect.
Fantastic plugin! It has everything a security plugin needs. Firewall, Live Traffic, Scanning, everything!
This is just what we all need!
It's easier to trouble shoot with Wordfence than going to my host provider and I love my host provider.
It found several modified files and first malware infection. Cleaned up easily and really like the clear tips on how to clean things up for each issue found!
Thank you so very much! I
Great simple to understand features. The login attempt lockout is great -- it has already locked out a few people trying to login from who knows where.
