Truly the best security plugin I've tried
By , for WP 4.5.2

Reasons to use:

It's Free

Stops xmlrpc.php attack which slows down your blog

Login using two-factor authentication and IP address restriction, this is good because it verifies that it’s you that is logging in

It has way more features, but for just these three, I can't recommend it highly enough.

Just Cool
By , for WP 4.5.2

I found it just cool with lots of features that are flexible to tweak. I have also not experienced it having conflict with other plugins. I highly recommend shield.

Best Security Plugin I've used
By , for WP 4.5.2

Overall this is the best security plugin I've used for my agency work. I've found that it does its work well while not slowing down the site one bit.

Def a great choice. I'm a recent convert from Sucuri (which is a good plugin, but tends to slow sites down in my experience).

Excellent Job

Don't have to think about this Plugin - works great in the background. Haven't had any support issues.

Comprehensive security
By , for WP 4.5.2

I really like having all the options that are available, and have found this plugin very easy to set up and work with. I did have some issues accessing my website (just as a user, not logging in at all) with some of the more extreme firewall options, but the instructions and suggestions are very helpful, and it was easy enough to get back in and change those options & fix the access. As always with security, there is a balance between being decently protected, and making it too difficult for legitimate users of the site (i.e. myself), but I have been very happy to get this level of protection for my website at only minor (& manageable) inconvenience.
