Some issues on a large site
By , for WP 4.5.2

I got db connection errors, huge delays on creating/updating posts, uploading images etc.. I removed the plugin and everything normal. I just dont feel safe now :) Has the owner of the plugin tested it with some large sites (with large databases, frequent updates, huge traffic)?

Great but
By , for WP 4.4.2

Great stuff, but the free version does not show any malware on a site I know is infected, is the paid version better?

Not free
By , for WP 4.1.1

Another case of setting the bait saying it's free but when it comes to the point it's not free to actually do what it promises. Just another sleazy and deceptive vendor

It crashed my site.
By , for WP 4.1.1

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.

Basic lockdown features that we all likely otherwise miss
By , for WP 4.0

Great security tools, proactive and reactive, in this plugin. It's more of an app than a plugin. Very much worth the install.

It's a good plugin, but the last update has caused trouble.
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's not allowing me to get the API it's demanding, nor giving me a good explanation of how to solve the problem.

"Sucuri: Something went wrong with an API call (register_site action): SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain"
