Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
I installed this plugin after another website I manage was hacked. I had no idea how many hackers were trying to break into my website every day, but now I can see every IP address that is blocked! I now have peace of mind that malicious users cannot break into wordpress, and if someone was able to hack into the server I would know right away if they made any changes to my files. The free version works great, but it's worth the $30-40 bucks for year for Premium and the advanced control it allows.
Great plugin. My only single complaint so far is that there is no way to turn off email alerts every time your site has a plugin that needs updating. It lumps those under "critical alerts" whereas to stop receiving those emails I would rather uncheck the "critical" alerts box (since I consider those unnecessary alerts filling up my inbox more ungodly than failing to be notified of an actual critical alert) ... which ultimately makes the plugin less useful for me. I wish they could separate a new check box for "plugin updates" alerts so that I could simply uncheck that, and still receive other critical alerts. Other than that, super plugin I highly recommend!!
A truly outstanding plugin that works like a charm. This plugin ought to ship as standard equipment with WordPress.
Once you start seeing all the bots and hackers it blocks you'll never install WordPress again without it.
Simple and easy to use. Great support
A security system and caching apparatus shipped as one plugin? Insane. But somehow authors made it work. Bravo!
PS: Holy cow, the Falcon engine boosted my Pagespeed score +20 points. Now that's a healthy boost!…
This is THE best security plugin for WordPress, hands down. It combines features you used to have to get from several plugins or code yourself. (We do add a number of other measures to our security mix but they're outside the realm of plugins.)
Overall, an excellent security plugin and highly recommended.
Thanks for this plugging, it detect all kind of attacks
Amazing plugin. Whole new world for power users.
Excellent - seems to detect accurately - a recent Phishing attack.
