Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
The amazing thing in this plugin, it can prevent a lot of kinds of attacks such as DDOS. [link]
I have been using Wordfence on 6 websites so far. Not a day's trouble, just rock solid stability.
Love the email notifications of login attempts by hackers etc. Took a little while to find my way around the 1st time, but smooth sailing since then. Lots of helpful finctions, thank you to the developers.
Highly recommended - 5 stars are not enough!!!
Not a paid member yet but doubtless will be soon. This is one of the first plugins I install on every site. Easy to use and very effective.
After all the good review here i going to check this plugin...One of my websites get a malware warning...
BTDT several times and it's not fun. After a recent update to one of my sites, I realized we needed to get serious about WP security. Wordfence is indispensable. Alerted us to a log-in that was not authorized, and has stopped countless other attacks. Is also good to monitor backend access to your WP. Some have mentioned the number of emails, which I do agree can be a bit of a nag. But it's a small price for the amazing piece of mind. Totally plan to go pro when I have the fundage. :D
We manage around 50 WordPress sites and have had issues in the past including complete site losses. In the last 3 weeks since installing Wordfence on most of our sites it has defended several sites from attack and executed lockouts. For anyone not using Wordfence or thinking seriously about security - it's not a matter of if - it's a matter of when! Big Thanks!
p.s Will be upgrading site by site shortly to premium..
It's great, you can check your whole site against the repos for modified files, restore them and it also detects strange files that shouldn't be there.
One of my sites had already been hacked. Wordfence helped detect the injected files.
I was a little concerned this would make logging in troublesome - but it works perfectly and easily to use. A suggestion to improve it would be able to instantly ban an IP that attempts to add PHP to your URL I've seen a bunch of this and the second I see someone phishing for my PHP files they get a permanent BAN! I'm doing this for anyone trying to log-in with any of the common user names like admin - administrator or the sites name one wrong log-in attempt and they are locked out YAY! I'd love to see the look on their dork A$$ face.
I was getting so much spam and so many hacking attacks that I couldn't reach my blog for days on end. Wordfence stopped that overnight. It is easy to manage by someone like me who specializes in content and usually has to seek help with technical issues. Thank you, thank you.
