• I’ve compared Sucuri’s free plugin/service with another, very popular plugin and Sucuri wins hands down. Two of the sites I host have been under constant attack for almost two weeks. Using the plugin along with changes Sucuri recommended, the attackers have been blocked at every turn. I am very satisfied with the results.

  • Hello @popvid,

    Thank you for your message.

    I’m glad you find the features in the plugin useful.

    However, I want to clarify that the plugin does not provide active blocking of malicious HTTP requests. If your website is behind the “Sucuri Firewall” [1] then the plugin is simply reporting what the firewall is blocking. But if you do not have any firewall, from Sucuri or any other company, then the plugin is simply alerting the website owner(s) about suspicious events that occur when someone tries to attack the website, but it doesn’t block the attack.

    Some people have complained in the past because they were confused about how the plugin works. I want to make sure that whoever reads your review doesn’t think that the free plugin is doing all the work, when in reality it’s a more complex and powerful system behind it —the Sucuri Firewall— who’s stopping the attacks.
