Haven't had any security issues since I installed it
By , for WP 4.1.1

Installed this plugin last year, when the wordpress hacking was in vogue. After I cleaned my websites and I installed this plugin, I've never had any security issue. Great plugin, really happy with it !

It crashed my site.

It crashed my site. I've spend many hours trying to debug and ended up this plugin causing the problem.

Good, but uses MUCH RAM. Slows down site
By , for WP 4.1.1

Protection is very good, but since it is loaded with more and more functions every update, it's slowly growing into a heavyweight plugin that uses over 3MB of memory for every pageload.

If you have a simple blog with a handful of pageviews, this works great. But if you have a site with more than 2 million pageviews, it's becoming a real problem.

3MB RAM usage is too high and it slows down our site.

Developers: please focus (more) on optimization and memory consumption.

Great Plugin Great Support - an MU Plugin :-)

This does what it says it will do - very logical format - easy to use - good functionality - good customisation ....

Excellent plugin - I run 20 WP sites and they are all subject to hacking attempts of some form or other on a daily basis
. Decent plugins like this are a MUST Have so if you haven't tried it you should .
AND GREAT SUPPORT - really a good team looking after this baby - THANKS GUYS

Stops Hacking
By , for WP 4.1.1

What a great plugin. I was able to identify the .php files that had taken over my email and caused my IP to get blacklisted. I also found numerous other .php files that were injected on the site.

The plugin scans and identifies files that have been added or modified. I then check them out. It also allows you to quickly protect highly targeted folders such us wp-admin, wp-includes, etc.

This plugin is a must.

WordPress keeps becoming more and more common, and therefore more and more vulnerable because of its popularity. There are many hacks that aren't even noticeable until we dig deeper. It is best to be prepared and this helps a lot to do just that.

Must Have

Great plugin I recommend using it on every wordpress installation

Highly configurable, without the bloat of other security plugins
By ,

Sucuri strikes a good balance between security features and ease-of-use. I am a recent convert from Acunetix. Very configurable, and much easier to setup than other Plugins, like Better ... and Wordfence.

I particularly like the login and content editing monitors, as well as the dashboard hardening checklist. I would give it 5 stars, but only time will tell how effective it is.
