Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
After having a site hacked I had to manually pour over my WP, theme, and plugin files to try and clean things up. I needed a way to determine the level of corruption and ferret out the malicious code. Wordfence not only provided that but continues to add value by conducting automated sitewide scans to detect signs of intrusion. It doesn't magically fix your site but rather points out differences between known versions of WordPress and plugins and identifies suspicious code contained in other files. Having this information gives you much more confidence when cleaning your site after a hack. I am very satisfied with what it has done and am looking forward to implementing it in other Wordppress installations. If you are responsible for a WordPress site and want to take some power back over controlling it then this plugin is a must!
I use wordfence on all of my wordpress sites. There is no other plugin around which is as comprehensive at searching you site for so many vulnerabilities.
Extremely useful and easy to use.
awesome thnx to the wordfence team
The free version is ok for very simple sites...
BUT if you run buddypress or sites with social networking elements that contain sensitive info I suggest upgrading... the premium features help secure your data
I installed it and had a bunch of trouble, woe, and aggravation.
I uninstalled and things got better.
The improvement since uninstalling could be a coincidence....
Thanks for this great plugin!
Great plugin. Shows how many people are trying to bust into your WP site.
Then it allows you to block their IP, network, and even country.
It's a must-have for every WP site.
