Certainly does the job :-)

Very good extra security protection
By , for WP 4.1

I've used this plugin for several years now in both the free version and the premium iThemes version and it's performed very well. The peace of mind that comes from some of the features is great -- not only for me, but for my clients, too. It's very simple to use (can't say the same for some others in this category) and allows a lot of settings. You must BE CAUTIOUS when using a few of the heavy features -- never work with a site's security without a full backup handy.

Easy and quick

Great plugin for better WordPress security :)
By , for WP 4.1

Easy to configure, options are self explanatory. The best security plugin I've ever came across.

Great for keeping being hacked
By , for WP 4.1

I installed this plugin and set up all the settings - including daily updates and i am so surprised at the number of lockouts that happen - that I don't have to worry about because they are trying to hack into my site.

Issues around Google sitemap permissions are now the only reason I am frustrated with it because my traffic is being effected. Will have to work this out but otherwise. Great product!

Great plugin for security, backing up DB
By , for WP 4.1

I use this on all my WP sites to increase general security and to backup my databases. Haven't had a WP hacked since I started using iThemes Security.
