Description and Details

A new version of the best WordPress security plugin has become available - iThemes Security Pro which will do everything for you to make your website more secure with a simple way to enable or disable settings.


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. It is for these reasons that protection plugins are so important, one of which we will consider today.

features of the plug-in iThemes Security Pro
Protecting WordPress from brute force passwords (Brute Force)
Limit the number of failed login attempts allowed for a user 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 will most likely add, delete, or modify the site files. Receive email notifications of recent file changes so you know if you have been hacked.
404 Detection
If a bot scans your site for vulnerabilities, it will generate a lot of 404 errors. iThemes Security will block this IP address after the limit you set (by default, 20 errors in 5 minutes).
Strong password protection
Specify 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.
Block "bad" users
Keep bad users away from your site, if they have too many unsuccessful login attempts, if they generate too many 404 errors, or if they are in the black list of bots.
Standby mode
Do not make changes to your site 24 hours a day? The Harden WordPress feature makes the WordPress toolbar inaccessible during certain hours so that no one else can penetrate and try to make changes.
"Hide Login & Admin" function
Change the URL of the /wp-admin/login.php login WordPress, so that 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 storage locations outside the server.
Email Notifications
Receive email notifications when someone is blocked after too many failed login attempts, or when a file on your site has been modified.
Malware WordPress Scan
IThemes Security Plugin uses the Sucuri SiteCheck scanner for the malware scanning feature in WordPress. Sucuri SiteCheck uses 10-point scan 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 be notified by email if a problem is detected.
WordPress Version Management
Outdated software — be it WordPress, themes, or plugins — puts your websites at risk, because security vulnerabilities are often well known to intruders. The new version of the module version control iThemes Security Pro can automatically update to new versions of WordPress, themes and plugins, as well as take steps to increase security when the site software is outdated.
WordPress Magic Links Module
The Magic Links feature allows you to log in when your username is blocked by the Local Brute Force Protection feature. When your username is blocked, you can request an email with a special login link. Using e-mail will bypass username blocking for you, while intruders will still be blocked.
Two-factor authentication
Thanks to the two-factor WordPress authentication 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 into a user account, a password and code are required. Two-factor authentication adds an extra level of WordPress security to make sure that you are actually logged in, and not the one who accessed (or even guessed) your password.
