Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
Very easy to use. Best security plugin I've used on my blog, going to upgrade it soon. I highly recommend WordFence.
So far, notified me about some old themes using an old version of exploitable timtumb.
Great project and effort!
The free version is great and provides needed security. The Country Blocking feature in the Pro upgrade is worth every cent.
A good thing for a security plugin is when it can be trusted, I put the safety of my website all in Wordfence´s hands. It is working like a charm.
This is a great plugin!
Very few false warnings but it's ok! I use it in all my wordpress sites!
Installation: einfach und komplikationslos
Ergebnis: Transparenz & Sicherheit
Bewertung: besser geht's nicht
Straight out of box, no complex configuration and it works. If you know what you are doing, tweak this thing to your liking. One of the best security option for your wordpress install. Loved it.
There is no such thing as 'perfect' security - there is always someone looking to find a sneaky way to change what you had in mind for your WordPress installation.
Do yourself a favour and install this plugin.
It isn't perfect, but it is about as close as us non-security experts are likely to ever get.
Feature rich - but not daunting to use and there is an active forum, and a worthwhile mailing list (this review posted on 18/04/13 and the most recent mailing included tips on how to mitigate the global attack on WordPress sites)
As you progress you may end up wanting the extra features of country blocking etc - which are paid for - or you may just think that it is so useful as a free plugin that you are going to pay the small annual amount to support the developer.
I rarely comment on plugins - but this is a must have for anyone with a WordPress installation.
Be wise - install Wordfence
