Security for dummies
By , for WP 3.6.1

Overall the program has a lot of vital security fixes and changes that you need multiple plugins elsewhere to get. MOST of the changes are pretty simple and straight forward. A word to the wise to those new at this though, INSTALL TO A FRESH WORDPRESS INSTALL ESPECIALLY WHEN USING WORDPRESS MU ENABLED and IT REALLY REALLY HELPS IF YOUR SSL CERTS ARE ALREADY INSTALLED (GO TRUSTED/VERIFIED CERTS/KEY trust me) and functioning before install. I saw enough good that even with my nightmare of an install experience I am going to try again, THE RIGHT WAY. lol. I would recommend to the developer to additionally include a change removal tool to undo changes simply (if that's even possible) for those who aren't so savvy especially as backups don't always work as expected. Read the directions, do after a fresh install and make sure certs/key is installed first and I think you will love it. (4 stars is for ease of install for the vapid amount of new users in the WordPress landscape)

Astoundingly good security - but causes problems
By , for WP 3.6

This is an absolutely fantastic plug-in!

The security it provides is fantastic. Unfortunately, it also causes problems at every turn... I guess because it is SO GOOD (and it is!).

I can't run it alongside WooCommerce, it breaks the check-out process. I can't use my e-mail marketing along with it, it breaks the links in the e-mails by appending to them. It's a great plug-in, I just wish I could get it to run with my sites better!

Unfortunately, I'm now unable to even make modifications. I'm (obviously) the admin on the sites, but I'm told I no longer have sufficient privileges.

It's a great plug-in, and I will definitely keep updating it and doing my best to use it. HIGHLY recommended, especially for simple, high-traffic sites.

I HIGHLY recommend installing and running as many of the features as you can on even a complex site, but be aware that you may have issues, so go carefully and do your best to make it work! : )

I recommend
