The Sucuri WordPress Security plugin is a security toolset for security integrity monitoring, malware detection and security hardening.
Thanks to these guys I was able to recover a website that has been hacked and was unable to recover it as the malicious files kept on reappearing.
As somebody who runs a WordPress site that is a relatively high profile target for hackers and spammers, I've tried just about every WordPress security solution. When you're subjected to large scale attacks, local solutions aren't enough - you need a good remote firewall. CloudFlare didn't do much at all, and while Incapsula drastically reduced the scale of attacks, it didn't eliminate them completely, so they just kept upping the ante until they eventually DoSed me again.
Sucuri however has features that really do block the attacks completely, They don't have a free plan like CloudFlare and Incapsula, but the cheapest one is only $10 a month, and it has features that will cost you hundreds with them. If you're subjected to these sorts of attacks, it's the best $10 you'll ever spend.
You will need to keep an eye out for false positives when you first install it (particularly if you have URLs with non-English characters), but their logging makes this easy to do, and their support is VERY responsive in solving problems. In short, I can't recommend this service highly enough.
Best to harden WordPress installation.
Fast support and fixes.
Granted my opinion will be biased being it's part of the company I represent, but it's part of my own posture.
We use it across all our online presences. We employ WordPress on a variety of our properties and the first thing we always do is install this plugin.
It facilitates our everyday administration and security review of our sites. It allows us to understand who is logging in, who is making changes and more importantly the integrity of the environment.
We use it for what it's intended for, nothing more, nothing less. For that, it's exactly what we require. When bundled with a Website AntiVirus and Website Firewall it completes our Security posture for our websites specifically.
Awesome plugin! It has saved my life for hundred times!
I strongly recommend this!
The info provided by the plugin is awesome, it helps a lot improving the site security
The plugin is great and helped me a lot in different websites I manage.
Nowadays it's very important to get feedback / alerts of the changes happening in the backend and the plugin does just that.
That feature was essential to better manage all the websites and be more proactive about the overall security.
Moreover, the 1-click hardening is also a great measure to prevent issues from happening in some scenarios. 5 stars!
super simple and useful :)
This is a great plugin, it helps scan and detect malware on my website. I havent really had any issues with it. Works like a charm :)
