iThemes Security Pro
The Best WordPress Security Plugin to
Secure & Protect WordPress
BUILT BY THE WORDPRESS SECURITY EXPERTS SINCE 2014
WordPress currently powers over 40% of all websites, so it has become an easy target for hackers with malicious intent. iThemes Security Pro takes the guesswork out of WordPress security to make it easy to secure & protect your WordPress website.
Stops automated attacks
Brute force attacks refer to the trial and error method used to discover usernames and passwords to hack into a website. WordPress doesn’t track any user login activity, so there isn’t anything built into WordPress to protect you from a brute force attack. iThemes Security Pro works to secure and protect the most attacked part of your website, the WordPress login, by blocking these automated attacks.
Monitors for suspicious activity
iThemes Security Pro keeps track of important security events that occur on your website. These events are important to monitor to indicate if or when a security breach occurs. The information found in these records can be used to lockout bad actors, highlight an unwanted change on the site, and help to identify and patch the point of entry of a successful attack.
Strengthens user credentials
The iThemes Security Pro plugin offers several layers of user security enhancements, such as strong password requirements, two-factor authentication, and passwordless logins. These important user security measures decrease the likelihood that a privileged user account can be exploited to successfully hack into a site.
Scans for vulnerable plugins and themes to apply updates
The iThemes Security Pro Site Scanner is our way to secure and protect your WordPress website from the number one cause of all software hacks. The Site Scanner checks your site for known vulnerabilities and automatically apply a patch if one is available.
Blocks bad bots and reduces spam
The reCAPTCHA feature in iThemes Security Pro protects your site from bad bots. These bots are trying to break into your website using compromised passwords, posting spam, or even scraping your content. reCAPTCHA uses advanced risk analysis techniques to tell humans and bots apart.
Automatically takes actions on your behalf to secure your site
One of the best parts of the iThemes Security plugin is the actions it will automatically take to secure your site. iThemes Security automatically locks out users, bans user agents and IP addresses, applies version updates, and more, all on your behalf.
