Solid Security Protection
By , for WP 4.2.2

Appears to be a good security plugin, but not perfect. I have to use additonal anti-malware plugins to find and clean malware that is routinely missed by iThemes Security. I also use an additional backup plugin. However, iThemes has blocked numerous malicious "admin" login attempt on my sites and seems to offer pretty solid protection. Use it as a piece of your overall security protetion, but use other plugins for malware scanning and backup.

Great product

I used to use the product years ago. moved away for some reason and ended up using Wordfence for recent sites. However, on one particular install Wordfence borked and I had to look for a good alternative.
Finding my old favourite was hard because of the name change, but once found and installed - the site has been rock solid.

You can get by with the default settings, I would, however, recommend spending some time walking through the recommendations and selecting almost every component; one or two I've been a little hesitant with where changes made to the core code could cause issue with plugins - that said, you can probably find another plugin that works - having to rebuild a downed site is much harder and more time consuming!

Great plugin, great people
