Support » Plugin: Cerber Security & Antispam » Everything you need to protect yourself

  • Aside from straightforward logic and flawless execution, this plugin is absolutely free. No hidden options waiting to be enabled after paying a hefty subscription fee or critical functionality missing due to the “available only in pro version” proverbial hubris that befell many a great plugin before. I haven’t tested it in a sort of DDS-like conditions. Don’t know how it’ll respond. So far it’s blocked a number of attempts to log in with false credentials. No serious stuff. White list is a great feature, although, if you were silly to lock yourself out there’s always a backdoor available — through accessing you wordpress DB directly and disabling the plugin if you can’t wait. I hope the plugin keeps developing and improving on what’s unmistakably a great foundation for a great future.

But I believe that the most optimal and reliable way is using NGINX rate limiting rules and WP Cerber together. Check out instructions regarding NGINX here:
