Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
I found this a very useful tool, and went premium. The country blocking in particular I have found has eliminated the spam I used to get.
I'm currently using the free version. This has already proven to be a "must have" with respect to monitoring hacking attempts and the ability to block IP addresses or a complete network.
The scanning features are also excellent, highlighting any issues, even known ones when upgrading plugins.
I am considering the Premium version.
The free version of this plugin really helped me out in a time of crisis, as one of a hundred thousand others affected by soaksoak.ru - initial scan helped me asses the damages and find just how far this hack had rooted itself, which is far deeper than most articles implied. This plugin does for free what other companies would love to charge tons of money for.
We grabbed premium keys for all of our sites and on the main parent site, which is ecommerce, a few more files were flagged that were not picked up by the free version. Worth the 20-25 bucks a year to grab a pro key, IMO. Highly recommended. Only suggestion is to make it easier to examine reported issues after you've fixed or removed them. I'm not sure if it can scan database tables for infections or not which would be a nice feature as well!
Solved my problem.
Great plugin, has beaten thousands of potential threats hacking on my wordpress sites and keeps me to the da on security threats.
This is the most useful plug-in for WP - Period. This team has done an amazing job. I manage a number of WP sites. This plug in is easy out of the box, and you will be amazed at how many times it saves your butt!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS AMAZING PLUG IN!
It works great, it's a must!
I've had a spate of hackers trying to log into my site as admin. Not only does Wordfence tell me this has happened and gives me their IP numbers, by putting the term "admin" under Options>Log in security options, it blocks them before they get in. (They wouldn't get in anyway but this gives me more peace of mind and eliminates a step I'd have to do manually.)
Yup, I'm loving Wordfence!
I install this on all my sites... sper easy configure, save my places, I get updates and notifications of vulnerability in plugins and themes as they discover them... I can not say enough good things about the plugin.
