Perhaps the best out there

Tried this on for size a couple of months back and just recently updated this plugin. After having tested other somewhat similar free security plugins, iThemes Security does a much better job than the others. Well done!

Little problems, fast setup

Despite an early lockout, there have been little issues otherwise.

No Disasters

Has done the job with no disasters as I've had with other security plug-ins. The directions for each section are written in plain English and include warnings the settings might cause problems with some plug-ins or servers.

Destroyed my Server

Do NOT use this plugin. It destroyed my WordPress server. I had to completely reinstall the last backup image because it screwed up everything.

Can't do without it
By , for WP 4.0.1

I started using this plugin a few months ago on our company site and since then it's one of the essential plugins I install on any clients website. I cringe to think that I wasn't using it before this. It's quite scary how many brute force attempts happen every week on a site.

Superb plugin. Feature rich, and never had issues with it.
