I've only been able to afford the free version but for years now, it's the security plugin to rely on.

Wordfence just resolved an issue for me within hours of posting the issue.
Wordfence definitely has your WordPress site covered.

Thanks!

As close to bullet proof as you can get

I could probably tell you how many attacks have been thwarted by WordPress, but I'm sure I'd be underestimating. Wordfence is more than a plugin -- it's an outstanding company obviously dedicated to protecting WordPress installations of all sizes and uses. While I only use the free license for my personal blog, I'm leaning towards purchasing the premium license. If nothing else, to ensure that this company remains vibrant and continues to engage with the security community as much as they already have.

The recent firewall installation and their proposed architecture for maintaining it add an additional layer of protection to an already robust plugin. I don't think you're going to find a better security plugin with a better company behind it as you'll find with Wordfence.

Solid

Wordfence is amazing. This is a big effort and all the moving parts work well together. The new firewall appears to be a big time saver. The free version of Wordfence is great but the pay version will set you and your client's minds free.

From Brilliant to Good
By , for WP 4.5

The latest update changed a few options and, in my mind, this plugin went from being brilliant to good. However, whenever compared to other products of this kind, it is way better hence the 5 star rating.

Apologies in advance for the negativity as I am sure you all work hard on creating the best security plugin.

The top!
By , for WP 4.4.2

I am testing it, and intend to use it for a non-profit (astronomy club) website.
It is great, complete and simple to use (just using the free version).

I might not need the full features of the premium version, but am seriously considering paying for it - so much I'm impressed with this plugin.
The only issue is the recurrent payment - although I understand some of of the arguments (subscrption for country block).

Thanks a lot for a great plugin, and very informative newsletter.

Simply the best
