I bought this plug in 4 years ago in 2012 after having a co-hosted site popped by an unrelated dodgy plugin. I have used this across all of the sites I host and have never had a successful malicious attack since installing.
Admittedly there is a slight learning curve to begin with, but the setup wizard has got better and better and, unlike many other offerings, the documentation is very good for those interested enough to dig into it.
More than a simple security product, the support is incredibly responsive and the product is continually evolving to stay ahead of the most common attack vectors. If you are looking for a robust tool to keep your WordPress site(s) safe, you've found it.
I have been using BPS Pro for a number of years on a group of sites. It works as stated....it protects my sites.....it has foiled a number of attempted hackings etc. On the few occasions I have required support then the support has been received very quickly and the problem/issue sorted in a very short time. I throughly recommend this plugin...I wouldn't operate a wordpress based site without this plugin installed.
I used this plugin in the past, quite difficult to set up and the interface not particularly user friendly compared to other security plugins, but it is seriously powerful and the best I found to feel secure.
I would suggest to make the plugin and all its settings easier to temporarily deactivate when installing WP updates and new plugins. ALso had serious issues with FTP changes when the plugin was deactivated, the directories were still protected and all my changes kept being quarantined regardless.
Great security plugin...
When I first started using his Plugin years ago it did a great job. Now they have so greatly improved it that it is truly amazing.
The only thing I might suggest is some sort of warning that what it is doing is very technical in nature. So, to go beyond default options you should have very in depth knowledge of the potential impacts of what you are choosing to do.
BulletProof Security plugin is one of the best security plugin for WordPress. I'm using this plugin since three years; Apart from initial confusion while setting up, it runs smoothly without any issues!
I'm not a developer but I can understand the amount of work required to keep up-to-date for so many years! Great Job!
p.s: I'll buy the pro version soon!
I use this on many sites, and BPS Pro on a few more. I wouldn't set up a WordPress site without it!
I use this plug-in in tandem with WordFrence and IP GeoBlock. I see in the logs that there are attempts to get in, but all fail. I am using some, but not all of their custom code. I'm very pleased with the amount of protection provided with this robust, free plug-in. Will be upgrading to pro soon, just to get notified when there are database changes.
The plugin works perfectly. The installation might not be straightforward if you have modified your .htaccess file before manually or because of other plugins, but the support is great and you will overcome any problem in a very short period of time.
I have used a few security plugins in my time, but Bulletproof is among the best there is. It is easy to use now and powerful. I wholeheartedly recommend this one for keeping the bad guys out.
