This plugin is very thorough. It covers all your bases and makes sure your WordPress installation is as locked down as you want it to be.

This plugin is one of the major advantages over the rest of the popular CMSs

Why use anything else?
By , for WP 3.8

I've used this plugin for at least 6 months and have nothing but good things to say about it.
- Easy to set up and understand
- Does what it says does
- No conflicts with other plug ins.
- helps newbies like me follow a checklist to make sure things are secure.
- lots of support notes and user guides to help you through any configuration...

Keep up the great work!!!
Should be the #1 plug-in you install.

As said, very effective, and very complete.
However, a simpler HMI would be nice for beginners.

Essential Site Security Plugin
By , for WP 4.0

This is probably the best plugin ever for any wordpress site. I have run several WP sites for a few years with this plugin and it works flawlessly, i think it is so good that it should come as standard with all wordpress installs. It is very easy to setup and use no site should be without it, nothing will provide 100% protection but this plugin is a great start to securing your data and even if your site does get breached their is a good chance you will know about it ASAP thanks to this plugins file monitoring features.

I also use to protect some of my none wordpress sites by installing it in the root directory so it will check for modified files in any of the directory's on my server plus the blacklisted IP`s also get blocked.

Keep up the great work and thank you for the many hours you have put into this plugin.
All The Best
Ps maybe you could set up something where people could post their blacklisted IP`s or automatically submit them to a public Database so people can use it to pre block possible attackers. :)

Good and easy
