iThemes Security Review: Considerations

Think of iThemes Security Pro like having insurance…you don’t want to be caught without it. It can take a bit to get it completely setup correctly and to understand all the options you have available but that is because iThemes have packed in so much into this plugin. 

This is not one of those plugins you “install and activate” then move on. You need to take the time to go through all the settings to ensure you have it configured to your needs. However, once it is configured you can pretty much leave it alone and sleep peacefully knowing your site is secure.

iThemes Security Review: Summary

Security Pro is an outstanding plugin and one you can’t afford not to have. Yes there is a free version but this is one of those times you should invest a little on your site and make darn sure it is safe. Please do not risk your brand reputation or customer confidence because you didn’t take a few minutes to makes things secure.

As a web agency owner, I have seen my share of hacked websites with customers who are panicked when their site goes down or just freaking out knowing they are under a brute force attack not knowing what to do. Security is a proactive measure.

How much is it worth to never have your website hacked, compromised, or taken offline for the wrong reasons? You might think no one will want to hack your site, but I promise you, this is a case of when…not if!
