Wordfence
By , for WP 4.2.2

Excellent product giving very proactive security.

Awesome - Every Site Needs This
By , for WP 6.0.8

I've been using wordfence for some time now. I tweak it to my liking and know I'm a lot safer. This plugin has been giving brute force attempts on my sites hell for some time now. I never realised just how much one of my sites was being attacked till I installed this and started getting lockouts on failed logins and they would change their IP using a VPN and try again then give up because it would take to long to brute. etc

I highly recommend this in either by itself, or for a little extra security get acunetix plugin to go with it and change some common vulnerabilities with that as well.

If your site doesn't have this plugin you need it.

Amazing plugin

I love this plugin and install it every time I create a wordpress site.

Great work guys

Great Plugin for Security
By , for WP 4.2.2

Another great security plugin. I combined with a scanner/malware remover to secure website and it is working great. The paid version adds impressive list of features typically found in commercial website firewalls and scanners. This is a must have for any DIY wordpress installation.

Site under attack, saved by Wordfence
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've to say thank you.
Not a normal one, not a simple one, but the greates ever.

My site was under a tremendous attack, everything i did was unsuccessful and i can assure you: i did everything a medium wordpress developer can.

Not only Wordfence throttle system saved me with an intelligent access policy, but let me easyly know who to block manually during every suspicios attack with the live infos, something that my Awstat server wasn't able to do.

My host, one of the best worldwide, was next to block my account 'cause all this traffic was consuming too many resources, i was next to choose a completely dedicated server to solve.

A clean install of my site, Wordfence cache system instead of W3TC (UNBELIEVABLE!,) and now i'm consuming 70% less resources.

Thank you.

It's amazing.

Must have plugin for every wordpress site.
