Its powerful features and easy customization makes it the first choice over any other similar plugin.

Best security plugin I've found

The lockout feature really demonstrates how many brute force attacks are attempted on even the lowest profile sites for small businesses.

This should be the first plugin you install on any site.

Thanks guys.
