How will you know it works?
Well, we have a dedicated security scanner that will give you a clear security grade and report for your website. This way, you’ll know exactly what to fix.

WordPress Features

Security Audit
SecuPress is the only plugin with a full scanner able to fix the issues for you. And when it requires a decision from you, it will ask you before proceeding. With this feature, you can check 35 security points in 5 minutes and let us take care of the rest.

Once done, you get a security grade that gives you a clear idea of what your security level is. You can export this analysis in PDF format to share with others (clients or colleagues) (1).

Users & Login
This feature is the easiest way to make sure your users’ data is protected and to keep their accounts from being compromised. With this feature you can limit the number of bad login attempts, ban non-existing usernames login attempts and set a non-login time slot. SecuPress also makes sure you can avoid double logins and control your sessions.

SecuPress also adds a 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) because it’s almost a mandatory feature when it comes to WordPress security!

The plugin also gives you greater user and password control as you can set:

  • Password lifetimes for your users.
  • Enforce strong password use.
  • Forbid the use of vague usernames like www or admin.

Tired of bots finding your WordPress login page? Finally, don’t let bots find your login page, just move it with the famous Move Login plugin, now included in SecuPress.

Plugins and Themes
SecuPress helps you detect themes and plugins that are vulnerable or that have been tampered with to include malicious code. If you install one of these, your security module will send out an email alert and give you a warning in WordPress.

SecuPress takes security further by limiting plugin activation, deactivation, installation and removal in your production (live) website. Plugin and theme uploads via .zip files will be on lockdown as well to block off this easy hacking route.

WordPress Core
SecuPress reinforces the WordPress Core to keep it safe. The security plugin optimizes what’s under the hood to secure the config file by setting the proper parameters.

Sensitive Data
SecuPress secures content in many ways:

  • The plugin secures WordPress Endpoints and APIs by blocking bad requests for XML-RPC or REST API.
  • It blocks bad bots with its Robots Blackhole feature.
  • It provides an anti-hotlink feature to preserve your bandwidth.
  • The plugin packs 7 anti-disclose security modules to make sure no precious information is available to hackers in your PHP or WordPress itself.
  • Profile and SecuPress settings pages are password protected to keep sensitive information away from prying eyes.

Firewall

  • SecuPress is one of the most efficient WordPress bouncer you’ll ever see!
  • The plugin blocks malicious incoming requests.
  • It blocks bad User Agents (no bad crawlers allowed).
  • Bad requests methods also get the boot in a single click.
  • URLs are kept in check: no bad URL contents.
  • SQL injection scanners are kept out as well.
  • Brute force attempts are stopped in their tracks.
  • GeoIP Blocking by country gives you more control over your traffic.

Malware Scan
SecuPress has a unique malware scan developed by our security experts. It hunts down bad files and provides you with an easy step-by-step report that lets you take action. It looks into:

  • Bad files in your FTP.
  • Your uploads folder for dangerous files.
  • Potential phishing attempts via index.php loads.

Backups
We know firsthand how painful it is to pick up the pieces after an attack damages your WordPress. SecuPress preserves your data to help you avoid lost content or settings if your website comes under attack. The plugin backs up your database and files and lets you download them to guarantee you peace of mind.

Anti Spam
Did you know that 60% of the traffic on the Internet is generated by bots? Most of them happen to be spam bots. We developed our own anti-spam system that works quietly in the background. Just activate it and enjoy a spam free experience.

Alerts
Alerts are an essential tool when your website is under attack. When something important happens on your website, SecuPress will send you an alert via email. We’re working on alerts via SMS, Slack & Twitter as well.

You also receive a daily report that provides a debrief of the attempted attack and all the activities blocked by SecuPress.

Scheduled Security Tasks
SecuPress can run 3 separate scheduled tasks for you. It’s like having a security patrol on your WordPress.

Scheduled Scanner: SecuPress scans your website to detect any issues. After the scan is complete, you get a report in your inbox outlining any actions you have to take to protect your website.
Scheduled Backup: our team knows that everyone at one time or another forgets to back things up. We made it an automatic task to help ensure you always can recover from an attack with your content safe.
Scheduled Malware Scan: this security feature scans your website at regular intervals to hunt down any malware that may have gotten into your WordPress.

Logs
SecuPress will keep a log of important security activities and 404 pages triggered by users, bots or even Chuck Norris. This lets you keep an eye on what’s going on in your WordPress at any time. You can also control banned IPs from this option.

As a paying customer of SecuPress I had good experiences with support and the plugin. But over the last months issues have not been resolved and the support delayed or did not resolve the issue at all. My client received almost 2000 2Auth mails in his mailbox and the developer stated that this issues could not be replicated. During investigating the issue the developer just went on vacation and it took almost 2 weeks before he responded. He promised to resolve things in version 1.5. In the meanwhile I had to find a resolution for the 2Auth option. When I asked him to install a 2Auth plugin, I discovered it could interfere with the WooCommerce account login. Also a previous resolved issue with the log display of the plugin occured again. Although this should be resolved in the plugin update. As I had no confidence in issues being resolved, I asked for a refund because I had just paid for the subscription renewal. But SecuPress offered nu refund or any financial compensation for the plugin malfunction. The only response was that I had to stay confident and they would be trying to resolve things. Also they called my installations messy which is just utter nonsence. So after almost 3 years of plugin membership I decided to take the financial loss as I cannot take the risk for my company and clients to be exposed to these uncertainties.

All too often follow on support for WP-plugins are lethargic at best. SecuPress has always promptly responded to simple questions and complex support issues. This latest update solved a major issue I was having and added a feature that I had only mentioned in passing. No more spoon feeding single IP's. SecuPress now allows multi-line entry of wide range of IP and IP range formats. This was well beyond expectations and is a much welcomed feature. Thank you!

I tried several security plugins before settling on SecuPress. It is capable, secures my site, lets me see which IPs are attacking my site. The other security plugins I found were either too expensive or far too high an impact on performance. For me SecuPress is perfect and security is very important to me - highly recommended and the support was great too.
