good
By , for WP 4.5.3

Good but you can't depend solely on this plugin.

Suggestion
By , for WP 4.3.1

A option to auto-block usernames.

For example. The username (admin) of my website is not admin or test, is XXX (example). So ALL users who try to log with admin, administrator, test, etc... will be auto-blocked by the plugin. :)

Excellent - when they add Apache 2.4 support will be 5/5

Excellent - when they add Apache 2.4 support will be 5/5. Their CloudProxy firewall service is well worth the cost. They are still working on full IPv6 support (though are *very* close).

The only reason I have to knock off a star, and I hate to, is because they haven't completed Apache 2.4 support yet in the WordPress plug-in. It shouldn't be a big deal, so I'm sure they will get around to it when they next have a creative burst.

It's fine
By , for WP 4.3.1

It has a lot of options that can be confusing for the average user that could be clarified. Hoping the default options are strong enough for proper protection.

Great!

Good but sometimes, too many emails are annoying.

Good One for Security
By ,

Being free it do all the provides features as prescribed and also been great from that for the premium ones.Good one for security as because it helped me.

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.

Sucuri Plugin with API for Cloud Proxy Almost Full Marks
By , for WP 4.1.1

Big fan of previous plugin and loathe to make change but it kind of makes sense. It would be helpful for clients with monitoring service as paid subscription to be able to plugin in API but now there is the API for Cloud Proxy, I hope the option to use api on he monitoring will be re-introduced as well. For those of us that invested early. Its a downgrade to not be able to monitor from within WP Dashboard on scan results without having to manually run them. Having said hat its fine if you are getting it for free and you are to start with. Monitoring and Cloud Proxy as premium service are now a combined package so for paying clients would like to see combined api and match console with the combined web services.

It helps clients understand ramifications and scale of security issues and need to take responsibility across whole web team small or large.

Alerts are excellent and saves web admins lots of time but be careful if you switch all on you might not have time for much else :)

Excellent company and support is nothing short of superb a free plugin its great but really comes into its own with premium cloud proxy api enabled. Unusual to be able to say it but the plugin will e xceed most people's expectations and be a grand lead into why use Sucuri.

Look forward and hope to see multiple emails supported but we just use a forwarder so no one can say they didn't see the alert.
Almost full marks but missing the remote monitoring api that proactively alerts to deal with the issues as they arise. In the niche you can't beat Sucuri's plugin at the moment for new admins its a great plus.

As per an earlier reviewer it educates users and developers and the plugin developers have a great ethos and vision. No I don't work for them but I do love using their plugin and services.

It helps and teaches.

The thing I like best about this plugin is that, in addition to actually cleaning a site and making it more secure, is that I actually learned a great deal about how to better install WordPress in regards to security. Plugins that both provide a function and teach you to be better at what you do aren't as common as you'd think.

My only gripe is that the default notification settings are way too sensitive and unless you deactivate them, you get WAY too many emails.
