I will try to make this brief. But it's important that you realize that this plugin is "hands down" the very "BEST" when it comes to keeping your site secure.

I am a long time user of BPS Pro (since 2011), and will tell you this. During the past several years, while running BPS Pro on more than 30+ sites, not one has ever been taken down by a hacker. Actually, not one has ever been compromised. BPS Pro (along with the totally awesome support they provide) allows me to sleep soundly through the night and not worry about waking up and seeing that one of my Client websites is gone or been hacked.

If you haven't yet, just look through the documentation and video tutorials on their website. See some here: http://forum.ait-pro.com/video-tutorials/

Periodically, (in the past .. but no more) .. I've been caught up in thinking that one of the "newer" security plugins might be worth a try. I'd like you to take a guess as to what happened when I deactivated and removed BPS Pro .. only to try something else. Yup. You guessed it. While some of my sites (during this testing) didn't necesssarily go down .. they did become compromised. All because I got caught up in thinking that something else .. something new .. might be better.

Don't make this mistake. I can safely say this to you. If you keep BPS Pro up and running .. you'll be safe!

Plus, I believe in this plugin (with so much assurance) that I am personally willing to share my contact information with you, in the event you have any questions about what I wrote. (But if you have any product specific or support questions, BPS Pro would be the best people to contact.)

PS: I'm sure that some people may have their reasons for giving this plugin a rating of less than 5 stars. But as a long time user .. and someone that has tested many security plugins .. that THIS IS IT! BulletProof Security plugin is great. But BulletProof Security Pro .. is an absolute must if you're serious about wanting to protect your hard work.

I've been using BulletProof Security Pro since its first version, and although I've changed plugins over the years, I've never changed this one. The developper has always answered my emails within a few hours. I've observed clear progress in the plugin's ease of use: I remember, in the first version, there were some manual HTACCESS modifications to make, but in the latest versions, everything is automatic and works out of the box. Ideally, I wouldn't have to use a security plugin at all, but let's face it: security is a necessary inconvenience in our day and age. One main advantage of BulletProof Security is that you can disable a particular module if you feel that it's too intrusive. Personally, I disable the AutoRestore Intrusion Detection, but I use all the other modules. In any case, the greatest inconvenience is to get compromised or hacked, which has never happened to me. And I think that it's partly because of this plugin.

Was looking at installing this for a test drive, but after seeing how the representative throws his dummy out of the pram if a bad review is published, decided to delete it instead.

Dear Bulletproof Security,

Choose your customer service staff a little more wisely!

Great Plugin, Best Support

This plugin can take awhile getting used to, but once you learn what it's doing... it's very simple and effective. Plus, the support is phenomenal!

Nicht eines der besten, sondern das Beste Security Plugin für WordPress
By , for WP 4.3.1

Review bezieht sich auf die PRO-Version 11.3 (19.10.2015)

BulletProofSecurity gibt es entweder gratis (hier) oder auf der Seite des Autors als PRO-Version für eine Einmalzahlung für unbegrenzt Webseiten und ist es absolut wert.

Zu Beginn wird man von den Informationen erschlagen - plötzlich sind viele Hinweise am oberen Bildschirmrand, dass dies und das zu tun ist. Und das Interface ist nicht so hübsch wie bei anderen Plugins und nicht so "einfach" (a la: klick hier, mach das und fertig) sondern es gilt, etwas mehr zu lesen und die optimalen Einstellungen zu setzen und nicht einfach nur vorgefertigte Lösungen, die jedem Anspruch genügen sollen.

BPS ist umfangreich und über die Jahre wesentlich einfacher in der Bedienung geworden. Es liefert extrem viele Möglichkeiten, die Seite abzusichern und bringt Features mit, an die sich andere Lösungen nicht heranwagen. Mit einer extrem hohen Detailfülle kann man alle möglichen Arten von Informationen erhalten, Funktionen testen und vieles mehr.

Ein absolutes Plus ist der Support im Forum. Bei anderen, sehr bekannten, Plugins muss ich lange lange suchen, bis ich eine Information bekomme (wenn überhaupt) oder eben ein Supportticket öffnen.

Bei BPS ist alles(!) dokumentiert, sowohl im Plugin als auch extrem ausführlich im Forum. Der Support ist detailliert, schnell und kompetent. Bei BPS weiß man, dass die wissen, was sie tun. Es gibt kein böses Erwachen, sondern im Gegenteil ruhige Nächte, weil die Seite sicher ist.

Absolut, bedenkenlos und jederzeit zu empfehlen.

Excellent plugin and support

Pending Test Drive of BPS
By ,

I will use the free version and see how it goes.

If it goes ok, then I will buy the pro version and evaluate it.

I Will post my review after Test Drive is completed.

Works like a charm!
