Security: What is "Wordfence", the security feature of WebSpeed?

Hello, this is WebSpeed Support Desk.

WebSpeed, the WordPress dedicated cloud/server, comes with a security plugin called "Wordfence" as standard.

Wordfence is a firewall and security scanner plugin that is widely used to enhance the security of WordPress, making it one of the most popular security plugins worldwide.

Functions of Wordfence

Login Security

Provides strong control over login security, including protection against Brute Force attacks, protection against XMLRPC attacks, reCAPTCHA to block automated attacks, IP access control, and more.

Centralized Management

Provides centralized security event and template-based security configuration management.

Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication (2FA) has become a standard requirement for securely using services. Wordfence provides robust 2FA functionality for both administrators and users.

Malware Scan

Wordfence maintains the world's largest WordPress-specific malware database. Using this malware database, it blocks malware intrusion, detects malicious activity, and generates malware signatures to maintain robust security for WordPress-based websites.

Wordfence Firewall

The Threat Intelligence team that operates Wordfence continually discovers new vulnerabilities in WordPress core, plugins, and themes. New firewall rules to protect against these vulnerabilities are immediately released, and these firewall rules provide real-time intrusion prevention for WordPress.
