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
By , for WP 4.2.2

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

Very useful for simple advance security setup

If you don't have enough knowledge about IT security or don't want to expense too much time setting up basic and advance security parameters in your site, I highly recommend this plugin and its step by step setup wizard.
