Superior to other solutions!

I tried BulletProof's and WordFence's solutions prior to iThemes Security.

WordFence Comparison:
WordFence created unnecessary headaches trying to obtain the free API key just to use the plugin as is. Troubleshooting the issue was additionally cryptic. Certain elements of the interface design are poor and feel outdated.

BulletProof Comparison:
BulleteProof Security felt less intuitive and isn't as pretty/modern looking as iThemes Security.

All in all, iThemes is simply more user-friendly. The dashboard clearly indicates what needs to be fixed and how to fix it. Configuration options are well-explained and bottom-line, it works without requiring trouble-shooting.

My favourite feature is the ease at which I'm able to obtain the various API keys in comparison to the pointless difficulty I experienced with WordFence.

Perfect plugin

Nothing gets trough and I see all the attempts as 404. Nicely done! It notifies you, e-mail you with a db backup... What else can one ask for?

Great Plugin! Goes on EVERY site!

This plugin has replaced all other security plugins I have used in the past! The versatility and flexibility it provides is awesome at the FREE level. The premium level is fantastic as well and worth it!

Thanks for sharing your awesomeness!
