I had major issues with a number of wordpress sites and this plugin sorted all of my problems. Thanks so much for developing such a user-friendly plugin that actually works.

Very impressive security plugin - would recommend
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've tried a number of WordPress security plugins, but nothing has given me the level of protection my sites needed.

Then I came across the security firewall plugin and after reading the other positive reviews I had to try it. I haven't looked back since!

With all the features this plugin has, I feel that my sites are more than protected and with the logging feature I can see exactly what's going on.

I definitely recommend this security plugin, get rid of all the rest - they're just not needed!

Cheers,
JK.

This Plugin is Fantastic, and So Is the Support!
By , for WP 4.2.2

This simple, easy to configure plugin is fast becoming my go-to solution for securing WordPress sites for our clients. It has tons of great features and has been error free while keeping the internets most nasty out. I highly recommend this excellent plugin.

I want to also mention the fantastic support: I had an odd issue today, and the developer responded almost immediately and we worked through it quickly. He gave me a fix for my site and then planned on a release in the morning. Just amazing.

Its experiences like this that make me love the WP community. Thanks iControlWP Team for an amazing plugin and experience!

Great and really simple security!

I must say this is one of the best security plugins I have ever used. In my own personal tests the plugin is rock solid and it doesn't lock you out from your site or generate errors on updates.

It also simplifies a lot the work I have to do to keep everything running out smoothly. Highly recommended for any wordpress install.

Great Plugin and Even Better Support
By , for WP 4.2.2

I had an issue getting the Rename Login setting to work. I posted to their support forums and got immediate and constant responses. They even provided an updated version of the plugin to help with my troubleshooting. In the end it turned out to be an issue with my Apache config but they were more than gracious and supportive in helping me solve this issue. Highly recommend this plugin not just for its usefulness but because of the excellent support!

Amazing plugin

Used this plugin for a while, absolutely fantastic with so many features.

If you have a WordPress site then this is a must, my site got hacked & malicious code installed so i learnt the hard way.. install it now with the knowledge that it can save your bacon.

Had a small issue with the plugin but the support from Paul was top notch :-)

Just makes its work!

I have few WordPress installations and this plugin on them - I can say only one think - it just does its work! Great job Developers!

Easy to use and configure - recommend for every site!
By , for WP 4.2.2

The title says it all. This plugin just works - it is easy to use and configure, with a range of options that do what they promise. Of course no firewall plugin can completely prevent attacks but this plugin certainly makes your site that bit harder to attack which makes it less of a target.

Every WordPress site owner should run this plugin. I take care of many, many sites and use this plugin on all of them.

Awesome

I tried this as an alternative..it works great! Better than the one one I was using.

Really Fills Much Needed Gap in Security Plugins
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have 3 servers, 30+ sites and we've found that htaccess security works well but tends to require us to constantly change file permissions. And then we always run into issues with other plugins not playing well with our security.

This plugin is exactly what we needed. If you want to tighten down one site with loads of htaccess permissions, thats fine, but when you have many sites its simply not feasible. This plugin gives us the security we need without htaccess nightmares. The 2 factor authorization for login, spam control and plugin access key are brilliant.

Also, I had an issue with receiving emails from one of servers which turned out to be an issue on my end. They responded to my support immediately on the weekend.
