Works as advertised.

Does exactly what is says it will do, and works as advertised. What else can you ask for.

The plugin alerted me to someone in the Ukraine attempting to brute force into one of our websites.

Best and simple protection!

Just Best and very simple to set protection

One of the first plugins I install on all my sites. Works brilliantly.

Works well
By , for WP 4.1

As long as you take the time to work out what all the options mean and don't try to fully lock down your site straight away, it works really well.

Be warned: If you start messing with options that you don't understand, then be prepared to lock yourself out of your site, so make sure you whitelist your IP first. Its actually pretty easy to get back in though. Still, isn't it supposed to keep people out of your site :)

Also, deactivate this plugin if you are moving your site as you may well have trouble logging in at the other end.

I have used many of the security plugins, but iThemes plugin was the most comprehensive, effective and easy to use.

Great and must have plugin to secure your site

I suggest this plugin for every new wordpress installation, actually a wordpress site without this security plugin will be prone to attack, and the tool is also easy to use.
