Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
Simple to understand. A great tool to protect yourself with.
I use it on every wordpress install I do, and it's amazing how much phishing is going on. It also send alerts when updates are needed which is great for keeping track of multiple sites.
Extremely helpful plugin and I've been using it on almost 10 websites. I even get almost weekly emails from the developer detailing new threats on internet and how to protect my WordPress installations.
There are so many things that make this plugin THE plugin to have.
If you don't think so you haven't looked at it.
First, VERY easy to use and they do all of the setup work so you are more protected than other plugins right off the bat.
Keeps you updated before any other plugin like it that plugin updates need to be done.
Blocks out hackers automatically when they use usernames you don't have.
Shows you live traffic and the easy ability to block IP, range or entire server.
Emails you when ANYONE logs into a site (can show client THEY logged in at a day and time and screwed up the site)
SOOOOOOOO many other things. Free version is awesome, inexpensive paid version is phenomenal!!!!
i like the constant reminders (i have chosen to receive these), keeps me up-to-date and in the know when problems arise! thanks wordfence!!
Another thing lee to worry about with the upside that it tells you when your plug ins need updating
I've used this on three sites, and love it. One of the sites I had up for a few days without this plugin, and the site was hacked that quickly (even sitting behind IPTables).
Thank you for this plugin!
I use this plugin on 8 sites and have been using it for about a year now. It's easy to use, it works and my sites have all been happily unhacked, including the one that was full of bad stuff when I inherited it from another company.
I love the advice I get from Wordfence. It makes me more web savvy.
