WordPress Security Designed to Keep the Bad Guys Out
PREVENT WORDPRESS HACKS | WORDPRESS SECURITY BREACHES | WORDPRESS MALWARE | & MORE
WordPress Brute Force Protection
Limit the number of failed login attempts allowed per user with WordPress brute force protection. If someone is trying to guess your password, they’ll get locked out after a few attempts.
File Change Detection
If someone manages to get into your site, they’ll probably add, remove or change a file. Get email alerts showing any recent file changes so you know if you’ve been hacked.
If a bot is scanning your site for vulnerabilities, it will generate a lot of 404 errors. iThemes Security will lock out that IP after the limit you set (20 errors in 5 minutes by default).
Strong Password Enforcement
Set which level of users on your site (admins, editors, users, etc.) need to have strong passwords. Strong password enforcement is one of the best ways to lock down WordPress.
Lock Out 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’re on a bot blacklist.
Not making changes to your site 24 hours a day? Harden WordPress by making the WordPress dashboard inaccessible during specific hours so no one else can sneak in and attempt to make changes.
Hide Login & Admin
Change the default URL of your WordPress login area so attackers won’t know where to look. This feature is also great to help clients remember their login link.
Schedule database backups and have them emailed to you. Or you can get our WordPress backup plugin to step up your backup game. Make complete backups and send them to off-site storage destinations.
Get email notifications when someone gets locked out after too many failed login attempts or when a file on your site has been changed.
EXTRA PROTECTION FOR WORDPRESS USER LOGINS
With iThemes Security Pro’s WordPress two-factor authentication, users are required to enter both a password AND a secondary code sent to a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. Both the password and the code are required to successfully log in to a user account. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of WordPress security to verify it’s actually you logging in and not someone who gained access (or even guessed) your password.
WordPress Two-Factor Authentication Methods Supported By The iThemes Security Pro Plugin
The iThemes Security Pro plugin works with common two-factor authentication mobile apps such as Google Authenticator, Authy, FreeOTP and Toopher.
Time-sensitive codes are supplied via email to the email address associated with the user’s account.
Provides a set of one-time use codes that can be used to login in the event the primary two-factor method is lost.
MONITOR ACTIVITY WITH THE ITHEMES SECURITY DASHBOARD
Looking at your WordPress security log entries can be time-consuming and even difficult to understand. The new iThemes Security Dashboard brings your security logs to life by pulling together related entries and displaying it in a way that is relevant to you.

Use iThemes Security Pro’s WordPress User Security Check to assess the security of all your WordPress user accounts at one time and take action on them if needed.
Poor security for just one WordPress user account can open up your entire building, or site, to vulnerabilities that lead to hacks.
WordPress Malware Scanning
POWERED BY SUCURI SITECHECK
iThemes Security uses Sucuri SiteCheck to power the WordPress malware scan feature within the plugin. Sucuri SiteCheck uses a 10-point site check to scan your site for known malware, blacklist status, website errors and out-of-date software. With iThemes Security Pro, you can enable daily malware scanning and receive a notification email if a problem is found.
WordPress Version Management
DON’T ALLOW OUTDATED SOFTWARE TO PUT YOUR SITE AT RISK
Outdated software — whether it’s WordPress, themes or plugins — puts your sites at risk because security vulnerabilities are often well known. iThemes Security Pro’s new Version Management option can automatically update to new versions of WordPress, themes and plugins, along with increase security measures when a site’s software is outdated.
1 Strengthening & Alerting to Critical Issues
iThemes Security will automatically enable stricter security when an update has not been installed for a month. Additionally, you can also check for other outdated WordPress installs on your hosting account.
2 Automatic Updates for WordPress, Themes & Plugins
Ideal for sites you don’t use frequently or sites that don’t have complex setups, which are often neglected and have a greater risk of having outdated software.
WordPress Password Security
ENFORCE STRONG PASSWORDS FOR ALL USERS
Passwords are a critical component of a solid WordPress security strategy. iThemes Security Pro makes it easier for you to enforce strong passwords, so you can have greater WordPress password security.
Use iThemes Security Pro’s strong password enforcement settings to add a strong password generator to user profiles, enable password expirations and control the minimum user role for strong password roles.
WordPress Magic Links
LOG IN WHEN YOUR USERNAME IS LOCKED OUT
The Magic Links feature allows you to log in while your username is locked out by the Local Brute Force Protection feature.
When your username is locked out, you can request an email with a special login link. Using the emailed link will bypass the username lockout for you while brute force attackers are still locked out.
Manage Multiple WordPress Sites with iThemes Sync
REMOTE MANAGEMENT OF ITHEMES SECURITY PRO FEATURES
iThemes Sync offers a way to manage multiple WordPress sites from one place. Sync is also a secure way to remotely release iThemes Security lockouts and set Away Mode for your site.
