Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
I appreciate knowing that I am not alone out here!
Wordfence offers awesome protection for your WP site! Plus they openly show how many attacks they are intercepting LIVE!
It's working great!
Having a site hacked is simply horrible. Wordfence goes a long way towards preventing that, and is constantly updated. I have no idea why it wouldn't be one of the first plugins you install (or indeed become part of WP core!) Brilliant stuff- hugely recommended.
This plugin replaces a number of individual plugins by monitoring login attempts and either throttling them or denying access, depending on behavior.
It also scans core files and plugin files and compares them against repository version for change, thus protecting a site against injected malware. It also scans files and comments specifically for known malicious files, backdoors, trojans and suspicious code.
Many customizable settings.
Amazing one-stop solution even in the free version!
Thank you, thank you, thank you is all I can say!! :-)
Exceptional plugin that has stopped the bored little basement dwellers from ruining my blog site in a attempt to get to the server. Thank you Russia and China and Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand for all the attempts.
I don't use this alone, but it's a great addition to my other security plugins. I don't worry about news of attacks anymore!
My site was getting hacked repeatedly until I found this plugin. Love the real-time global monitoring and how much control I have over locking down my blog without having to do my own hacks.
