IThemes Security, formerly known as Better WP Security, is a WordPress plugin designed to enhance the security of WordPress websites by providing protection against known security risks. It helps ensure that security vulnerabilities are identified and understood, provides improved access control, helps detect and protect against malicious hackers, and provides safety measures against brute-force attacks. The plugin features over 30 security checks, including two-factor authentication, to monitor and deploy enhancements to the WordPress website’s security setup.
IThemes Security also offers a number of additional security measures, such as a malware scan, malware and blacklist history, file integrity checks, and user login security. It includes file system monitoring, to detect any changed files, and an automatic issue resolution tool that can assist with taking action in response to any security concerns identified.
The plugin also offers an optional Secure Password Generator, which can be used to generate harder-to-guess passwords that are more secure than commonly used passwords. In addition, IThemes Security offers integration with popular web hosting providers, such as HostGator and WP Engine, to allow for secure lockdown of selected resources.
