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.

Excellent Security, but May Use a Lot of Resources
By ,

iThemes Security is stable and plays well with nearly any plugin you're likely to use in your WordPress install. We've been using it for years. It does an excellent job of protecting our sites and closing vulnerabilities. We use it on a high-profile, high-traffic site (that was hit with a pharma hack a few years ago). Using this in combination with BP Security (and a few other tools), the bad guys have been kept out.

The basic, one-click setup is good. More advanced configuration can be confusing. Read and understand what each setting does. It's worth it to take some time protecting your sites now than to have to explain to your clients later why they are suddenly in the Vergara business....

It's powerful, but may use up a lot of server resources - cpu, memory, etc. Watch your resource usage with this one.
