I administer about 30 WP site using WordFence Security plugin. From the features listed, there are similarities. Other than the user interface to resolve issues, what are the distinguishing features of the iThemes Security plugin that would be advantageous for me in comparison to WordFence?

Hey Steve,

Thanks for your interest in iThemes Security!

iThemes Security (formally Better WP Security) was designed to completely replace other security plugins. It does more than most others on the application layer (jQuery, hide backend, etc) and is better paired with a network protection plugin like CloudFlare than a plugin(s) that is trying to do the same thing. In case you haven't seen it I've linked to the sales page below covering the current and upcoming features.


Please let me know if you have any other questions!
