Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that includes a firewall, virus scanning, real-time traffic with geolocation and more.
Be careful with this plugin. We had it (latest version 3.8.8) installed on three different sites with firewall disabled and 100% of our visitors were blocked out for days. It won't lock you out if you're logged in as admin. So, to test fully, log completely out of your admin and delete your cookies and cache. Then try it your front end. If you get the access limited 503 error then you're being blocked and potentially all of your traffic as well. I've contacted support but when they found out I was using the free version they stopped responding to my emails so not sure if they're going to address it or not but they do know about it.
Greatly appreciate having this tool!
Scanned and found where was hiding the malicious code. Thanks Wordfence I cleaned my site.
works horribly wrong for WPMU and does not play nice with other plugins
What a great product. Makes security a no-brainer for WordPress!
Live traffic reports in particular are very useful to see where our traffic redirects are coming from.
I've just started using this plug-in, and so far I love it. I especially appreciate getting e-mail notices of new issues. With other security plug-ins, I simply had to trust they were working.
On my site - [ link redacted, please do not post links in the reviews section ], All In One WP Security is good. But I like the function, Live Site Activity (Wordfence Security
), better than Analytics.
This is always the first plug-in I install on a new site.
