A new version of the best WordPress security plugin has become available - iThemes Security Pro, which will do everything for you to make your site more secure with an easy way to enable or disable options.
WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems in the world and, without a doubt, one of the most secure and secure platforms in the Internet space. But still, even it requires additional protection after installation, and new users may worry about hacker attacks. For these reasons, protection plugins are so important, one of which we will consider today.
Key Features of iThemes Security Pro Plugin
WordPress Password Protection (Brute Force)
Limit the number of failed login attempts allowed to the user by using WordPress brute force protection. If someone tries to guess your password, it will be blocked after several unsuccessful attempts.
Detecting file changes
If someone succeeds in getting to your site, they are most likely to add, delete or modify site files. Receive email notifications of recent file changes so you know if you have been hacked.
If a bot crawls your site for vulnerabilities, it will generate many 404 errors. iThemes Security will block this IP address after the limit you set (by default, 20 errors in 5 minutes).
Strong password protection
Indicate what level of users on your site (administrators, editors, users, etc.) should have strong passwords. Forcing a strong password is one of the best ways to protect WordPress.
Blocking “bad” users
Keep bad users away from your site if they have too many failed login attempts, if they generate too many 404 errors or if they are in the blacklist of bots.
Do not make changes to your site 24 hours a day? The Harden WordPress feature makes the WordPress dashboard inaccessible at certain hours so that no one else can sneak in and try to make changes.
Function "hide Login & Admin"
Change the URL /wp-admin/login.php of the WordPress login so that the attackers do not know where to look for the entrance to your site. This feature is also good to help customers remember their login link.
backups Back up your databases and send them by email. Make full backups and send them to destinations for storage outside the server.
Receive email notifications when someone is blocked after too many failed login attempts or when a file on your site has been modified.
Scan WordPress on Malware
The iThemes Security plugin uses the Sucuri SiteCheck crawler to scan malware in WordPress. Sucuri SiteCheck uses a 10-point check to scan your site for known malware, blacklist status, website errors, and outdated software. With iThemes Security Pro, you can enable daily malware scanning and receive an email notification if a problem is detected.
Outdated software - whether it be WordPress, themes or plugins - compromises your sites because security vulnerabilities are often well known to cybercriminals. The new version of the version control module iThemes Security Pro can automatically update new versions of WordPress, themes and plugins, as well as take measures to increase security with outdated site software.
WordPress Magic Links Module
The Magic Links feature allows you to log in when your username is blocked by Local Brute Force Protection. When your username is blocked, you can request an email with a special login link. Using email will bypass username blocking, while attackers will still be blocked.
Thanks to two-factor authentication of WordPress from iThemes Security Pro, users need to enter a password and an additional code sent to a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. To successfully log in to your user account, you need a password and code. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of WordPress security to make sure that you are actually logging in, not the one who accessed (or even guessed) your password.
