iTheme Security Pro – WordPress Security Plugin Description & Features
WordPress currently powers over 40% of all websites, so it has become an easy target for hackers with malicious intent. iThemes Security Pro takes the guesswork out of WordPress security to make it easy to secure & protect your WordPress website.
iTheme Security Pro Features
The Brute Force Protection Network is the best neighborhood watch. Except this neighborhood watch is a global community of watchers reporting suspicious activity to the Brute Force Protection Network.
Activate the iThemes Brute Force Protection Network to join 1 million other websites to unite against malicious IPs that are attacking WordPress sites around the world. You’re doing your part to secure not only your website but helping protect other people’s websites, too.
Once the Brute Force Protection Network is activated, iThemes Security Pro Plugin will go to work monitoring suspicious activities such as brute force attacks on your site.
Malicious IPs are reported to the iThemes Brute Force Protection Network so it can be added to the Network Brute Force list of banned IPs
The malicious IP is then blocked on all websites in the Brute Force Protection Network so it can’t be used to attack other websites in the network.
NO NEED FOR AN EXTRA PLUGIN TO SECURE USER ACCOUNTS
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.
Protect Your Website From Vulnerabilities Outside of WordPress
ONLY ALLOW AUTHORIZED DEVICES TO ACCESS YOUR WORDPRESS ADMIN DASHBOARD

CHECKS GOOGLE SAFE BROWSING API
The Site Scan also checks your Google’s blocklist status and will alert you if Google has found any malware on your website.
AUTOMATIC VULNERABILITY PATCHING
Automatically update themes, plugins, and WordPress core if the version you’re running has a known vulnerability.
During any scheduled site scans, you’ll get an email if iThemes Security Pro discovers any known vulnerabilities.
