Wordfence Premium is a powerful security plugin designed to protect WordPress websites against a variety of cyber threats. It has been downloaded more than any other security plugin available on the platform, which is a testament to its effectiveness and popularity.
The plugin is powered by the Threat Defense Feed, which is continuously updated with the latest security information and is used by the Wordfence Firewall to block hackers and other malicious entities from accessing your website. This helps prevent attacks such as brute force login attempts and malicious bots from penetrating your website’s defences.
In addition to the firewall, the Wordfence Scan feature uses the same proprietary feed to quickly alert you if your website has been compromised. This helps you take immediate action to minimize the damage and prevent further attacks.
Wordfence Premium also offers a Live Traffic view, which gives you real-time visibility into the traffic and hack attempts on your website. This can be used to identify potential threats and take appropriate measures to mitigate them.
