The Sucuri WordPress Security plugin is a security toolset for security integrity monitoring, malware detection and security hardening.
Very helpful. Just a warning note:
I had to remove wp-content hardening on the Hardening page of the Sucuri settings when some of the plugins reported that they cannot run; a number of my plugins do run php files that reside in wp-content.
I was using iThemes security Pro, but got hacked and iThemes didn't notice. I installed the free version of Sucuri, and the scan found all the problem files.
I'm impressed by the support provided for this plugin. The support team helped us, in a custom configuration, in less than a day.
The free version keeps nasties away while keeping you informed. I have to admit I prefer Wordfence because it offers more options, but Sucuri is a fine alternative.
Having used their services and read their blog many times I have a high opinion of Sucuri as a company and this plugin only reinforces that.
Some very useful functions like the login tracking and file scanning means that any intrusions will come to light very quickly and you can take action. Combine this with a remote management solution so you can keep wordpress installs up to date and you have considerably hardened WordPress.
I installed the free version after enduring a series of site hacks, and it's been amazing. The post-hack options got me back up and running quickly, the site hardening options saved me hours of work, and the audit logs have helped me catch potentially malicious files quickly. I've now installed it on all the sites I manage.
I love the hardening feature, and the post-hack options to easily reset all passwords and security keys are very convenient. The basic scan is helpful for finding malware, iframes and scripts. Yes, they do want to sell you the premium plugin, but the free version has some excellent features that make it worth your while.
It would be great to be able to change the wording of the password reset email, I hope that's an option in future releases.
Has some great features, such as hardening of commonly abused folders in wordpress.
Covers what's needed, no bloat.
I've used Sucuri for about a year and I remain quite impressed. The developers are obviously top-notch having built such a high-quality product to enhance security on WP sites and blogs. Many thanks Sucuri team!
