Great security plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

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!

EXCEPTIONAL

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!

totally awesome

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.

Peace of Mind
By , for WP 3.8.1

Installing Wordfence on the blogs I run, was suggested to me by a friend and I highly recommend it for added peace of mind. Even simply using the settings recommended in the free version, yields good protection against attacks. Go with the premium version if you want all of the Wordfence tools at your disposal.

Best Security Plugin I've Ever Used
By , for WP 3.8.1

I had a site I manage that had been hacked repeatedly after someone else who was also managing the site decided to set up an "admin" login and a very basic password. I tried a couple other security plugins and found them lacking in various ways. When I found Wordfence through some searching it sounded like just what I wanted. It is. I've since installed in on about 20 other WordPress sites I manage. Very easy to configure and it's been fantastic at blocking repeated hacking attempts. Of course, the "admin" has been removed too! This is one of those "you simply MUST have this plugin if you take your site's security seriously". Thanks to the developers for a great plugin!
