Good and FREE

The plugin does not replace a server firewall, but for sure it saves a lot of time by providing a basic protection. 5 stars.

Works, Easy, lots of options
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've used this for a while now. It's very easy to setup and adds a layer of security for many of the most common hacks. It also has a lot of advanced options. Great plugin.

A Must For Every Site
By , for WP 4.2.2

I put this on all my client's sites. Before I discovered this plugin I was using several separate plugins to do the job this 1 plugin does BETTER with less drag on the speed. iThemes Security offers more features, too!

This isn't a plugin for the faint of heart, though. If you have never ftp'd to rip out a plugin causing you problems then you should stick to the basic stuff and not get too adventurous. iThemes is for real. When I do run into trouble? I figure it out, I don't just skip it. Security is important and I don't trust another plugin like I do this one.

I will never launch any client site without this plugin.
