FINALLY! AMAZING security for WordPress with a pulse!
By , for WP 3.8.1

I was very skeptical at first, most "enterprise class" security products tend to be sketchy upsells for products that promise a lot but don't deliver.

I was very surprised by the incredible responsiveness and pro-active stance that Wordfence takes, their intelligence into the WP threat world is invaluable.

Their e-mail updates are concise and informative. The interface is excellent and their overall vigilance in every aspect of their product and service is incredible. EVERY WP installation should have Wordfence installed.

You can believe the hype, Wordfence does MORE than what it says on the tin.

Real value
By , for WP 3.8.1

The security alert emails are of real value letting us know what attacks are out in the wild. Mark and the team care about us and are dedicated to what they do. This is a wonderful plugin.

Great Security. Easy to Use. Important Notifications.
By , for WP 3.9.1

The folks at Wordfence regularly improve their product, and also send critical notifications when there is a WordPress related security flaw. These notifications are extremely valuable. WordFence should play a prominent part in everyone's WordPress toolbox.

Pure Gold
By , for WP 3.8.1

I wouldn't leave my WordPress blogs (any of them) online for one hacker-filled second without WordFence running. This is easily the most important plugin I use. Just to give you an idea, for almost a year my ISP kept shutting down my blogs due to brute-force attacks. Not one problem since I installed WordFence - though I see ALL the problems every day in my logs, problems WordFence stops dead in their tracks before they cause trouble. Many thanks to the author! (PS - No bugs or problems with the plugin that I've ever encountered. It's solid.)

Solid and comrehensive
By , for WP 3.8.1

Since I have been using Wordfence, I now feel and know that my sites are better covered from exploits and site corruption. I also really enjoy the security updates that they send out about the threats in the wild and how I can guard my sites from them. This is the best security plugin of them all!

Great resource
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is now deployed on all of the sites I manage. Until installing, I had no idea how many attempted hack log in attempts were made every day on these sites. This has not only kept me informed, it has added another layer of protection. I wouldn't want to be without WordFence now!

Always one of the Top Plugins in my Arsenal!
By , for WP 3.8.1

A lucky find! I found out about it and installed it and the plugin provides so much for combating security issues.. I enjoy getting to see who's doing the hacking, being able to block and getting alerts.

A MUST have in the security fight and struggle!

A very comforting plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is a very comforting plugin to have installed. As I think others have said before, it, or something like this, should be part of standard WordPress. Really like the regular Vulnerabilities reports. Thank you very much Mark Maunder.

Great tool!
By , for WP 3.8.1

A small business person often has no tech training, and yet is required to be the IT department. Anything that can make that smoother, easier is great. WordFence is just such a tool. I like to keep my plugins down to a bare minimum - only those things I actually need. It gives me information about potential issues, yet in such a way that I don't feel intimidated by technobabble jargon.
