Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
Simple and very efficient security plugin: I recommend.
If you need a tool to get after the bad guys :-) - this is an option worthwile exploring.
Beyond the simple utility of sending me an email reminder whenever I need to update a plugin or my core WordPress files, WordPress really saved my bacon when it caught a malicious file that had been hidden in my website's theme folder. The alert it sent meant that I was able to deal with the problem right away instead of not catching it until the damage was done.
I first installed the free version and quickly discovered that I could block traffic from all countries that I'm not interested in such as China or Turkey.
Case in point: By looking at the Live Traffic feature of Wordfence, I saw that I was getting a lot of "rogue" traffic from China. After I upgraded to the paid version of the plugin, I was able to use Country Blocking feature and set China (among others) as blocked.
Now I don't see any more traffic from China!
I've never had an issue of any sort with this plug-in. It works, and it works well. It's easy to use and it gets the job done quickly. The best of many, many security-related plug-ins I've used, by far.
Limiter en gratuit mais efficace en payant!...
Does it all. Excellent plug in for security.
The free version has tons of useful functionality. If you have a site that gets a lot of hacker activity, the premium version is well worth the money spent in exchange for the time saving feature to block by country.
