    I normally don’t do reviews but I do rely on them like so many others.  For the decades of running WordPress sites there is the juggle of the better security protection.  It’s not uncommon for our sites to switch security plugin’s every 6-12 months.  After years of working with the “popular” big security plugin’s I can say Defender Security has almost instantly reduced the constant fake user accounts being created on our forum’s section of our busiest WordPress site.

    We have also noticed it does not slow down the site like those other “popular” security plugins were starting to do with their recent overhauls.  Another positive like others have said, it also has features that eliminate other plugins such as country/IP blocking for example.

    Defender Security is not hard to configure, was easy to learn and figure out the key components that are important for our website and best of all the free version does everything we are needing so far.  

    It has only been in use for 2 weeks on our busiest website but what we have experienced has led me to do this review, again I normally don’t do reviews though I felt it important to share our success with Defender Security in the short time of using it. 

    This is one to give a try on your website!

    Keep up the great work WPMU DEV and I think we will be trying out their SmartCrawl SEO plugin next.
