I have tried a few other plugins: Wordfence, BPS Security BUT this All in One Wp Security and Firewall is just GREAT, EASY to configure and works!
Just watch the firewall "additional rules' - Bad Query Strings & Adv charc.string filter, will probably upset a few plugins. Yet just follow their install advice and make sure you backup .htaccess before trying these options.
As a few commented previously; The easy updating of database table prefix without using PHPmyAdmin & also changing file permissions with going to cpanel is just massive time savings fro us users - TOP WORK.
Many Thanks Dennis
